Arians said that he hasn’t talked to Donovan Smith, but he expects him to report for training camp on time.

Arians also confirmed that he’ll likely be wearing a mask and face shield on the sideline this season. He said he wasn’t concerned about players catching the virus in the facility, but believes that community spread could still be a problem.

In terms of on-the-field observations, Arians said he believes the shortened amount of practice time will lead to some miscues early.

Arians was also clearly excited about getting started with Tom Brady this season. He believes Brady can be a difference-maker and take this Buccaneers team to new heights.

Overall, Arians seems comfortable with his roster and is clearly excited about the prospect of what could happen this season in Tampa Bay.
