The Buccaneers will look to hold joint training camp workouts with another team this offseason, head coach Dirk Koetter confirmed Wednesday at the NFL Owners Meeting.

“It’s in the works,” Koetter said. “We’d like to do it twice if we can, but for sure once. Week 2 is ideal. Week 3 is still not too bad. Nobody’s going to do it Week 1 or Week 4, but it’s something we’ll try to do every single year.”
So far Tampa Bay has a couple “gentlemen’s agreements” with opponents, but won’t make anything official until the 2016 schedule is released.
The last time the Bucs held a joint session was in 2012, when the New England Patriots spent two days at One Buc Place before the teams met in Week 3 of the preseason. The idea to bring it back is something Koetter is especially in favor of after having prior experience.
“I’ve done it multiple times and I’m a big proponent of it,” Koetter said. “We’re going to do everything in our power to do it at Tampa Bay.”
It’s likely Tampa Bay will join again with an AFC team that is not on its regular season schedule, possibly the Jaguars or Dolphins, both of which often play the Bucs in exhibition games.

I think anytime you can have joint sessions with other teams,You both see something that is good for both teams. I think about what Tampa has done this year is really amazing. and Tampa Bucs will be a better team.Go Tampa
I’m hoping with all their big signings, New York giants fall flat on their faces.
I know Tom Coughlin does, too.
