With the start of training camp just a few weeks away, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter a make or break year. Not only for some players, but for the coaching staff as well. Here are storylines for Bucs fans to keep a close eye on.
The beginning of training camp in late July marks the return of football and the beginning of the quest for a championship for the 32 NFL franchises. As teams begin training camp practices with a total of 90 players they will start to evaluate and trim down to get to the final 53-man roster, but during those grueling practices and evaluation processes there are plenty of storylines to watch for, especially in Tampa Bay.
The Buccaneers are no different as they look to improve on an unexpectedly disappointing 5-11 season after adding several free agents and coming away with a highly-touted draft class. The three game suspension of quarterback Jameis Winston puts an unexpected bump into an already tough first three games to the season.
Even though that is the biggest story of the offseason, that is not the only story line that the Buccaneers will have playout during their training camp. They will look to improve upon their defensive line play, their secondary play and their run game (or lack there of) to help them get to the next level.
With that being said Winston is allowed to practice at training camp and even play in the preseason games, so let’s look into the top story lines to watch during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp which runs from July 28 thru August 22.
