Bucs Leadership Ready For ATL

The Buccaneers leadership is geared for a big finish to the week.

Should the players ratify the current version of the Labor Agreement, Buccaneer officials will fly to Atlanta this evening.  The NFL teams will vote to ratify the agreement tomorrow if things stay on track.

One possible scenario could let the Buccaneers start their training camp one week from Friday (July 29th), which was the planned training camp start date from the beginning.  In this scenario, college free agent signings would have to happen as early as possible, perhaps this weekend but most likely on Monday.  With a rookie salary structure in place, getting this year's draft picks to sign the dotted line should require much less debate.  The question then becomes timing around NFL free agents and a chance for teams to dive into that pool.

In any case, it's going to be a very fast, very busy run up to the new season.  Keep your fingers crossed, the next 36 hours are crucial!
