The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be in the national spotlight this Summer. The Buccaneers announced at a press conference Wednesday afternoon that the team will be featured on the upcoming season of HBO’s Hard Knocks. Tampa Bay was chosen over 7 other teams that were eligible for the show, including division rival, the New Orleans Saints. This will be the team’s first time featured on the show in this being the 12th season. The show will likely feature the franchise quarterback, Jameis Winston, new free agent acquisition, DeSean Jackson, the battle for the running back position, and the fight to make the team among rookies. The show typically airs Tuesday nights at 10 pm and will premier in early August.
