No Hard Knocks For Tampa Bay

With no end to the lockout in site and plenty more litigation to go through, I have been able to confirm through several sources that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not be part of the HBO Series Hard Knocks during the next training camp.

Until about 10 days ago, all signs were this was a done deal between HBO and Tampa Bay.  This change of tone may imply the Buccaneers see the current work stoppage lasting a while.  Add in the fact they are a young team and probably could wait with the distraction of daily cameras until they become a more veteran squad, and the move is very smart.

It is not clear if this will be announced or will just fade away, but this is not over.  My information is the Buccaneers remain open to the possibility of participating in the Hard Knocks franchise in the near future.

Just not the immediate future.
