Bucs Hold Final Three-Day Mini-Camp This Weekend

June 12 – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will hold its third and final three-day mini-camp of the offseason from Thursday, June 13 through Saturday, June 15 at One Buccaneer Place. The Bucs' practices are not open to the public, but they are open to the media, which means Pewter Report editors Scott Reynolds, Jim Flynn and Leo Haggerty will be on hand to provide fans with daily analysis, observations and commentary from One Buc Place.

Only 48 days and one final three-day mini-camp stand in the way of the start of Tampa Bay's 2002 training camp on July 28.

The Bucs' mini-camp will be held Thursday through Saturday at One Buccaneer Place. The Bucs will hold two practices on both Thursday and Friday and then one afternoon practice on Saturday.

Both new and old faces will be participating in this weekend's practices. The newest Pewter Pirates -- wide receiver Keenan McCardell and offensive tackle Roman Oben – will both make their debut.

Tampa Bay's defense is expected to be at full-strength for the first time this offseason. Defensive tackle Warren Sapp, defensive end Marcus Jones, and outside linebacker Derrick Brooks all spent most of the offseason recovering from surgery, but all three are expected to participate in the five practices. Cornerback Brian Kelly, who suffered a right broken hand during the team's first mini-camp, is also expected to participate.

The three-day mini-camp is not open to the public, but it is open to the media. Pewter Report editors Scott Reynolds, Jim Flynn and Leo Haggerty will be on hand and will provide fans with daily analysis, observations and news from One Buccaneer Place.
