The Bucs are getting some more attention as they become the next team on HBO's "Hard Knocks," according to tam.247sports.com.
The website site references Roy Cummings of FanRagSports.com in saying that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been selected to star in the popular training camp documentary.
The official announcement is expected Wednesday.
General manager Jason Licht believes he has the personalities on his roster to make Hard Knocks with the Buccaneers an engaging show.
"I’ve said it before, I feel good about our team and the maturity, especially for being a young group," Licht said recently, per the Tampa Bay Times. "I know we have some great personalities on our team starting with Jameis, Gerald (McCoy) –the list goes on and on, [linebacker] Kwon [Alexander]. The fans would get an inside look at how our team really is. I know that you guys get a better feel than most, but I think the fans would get a real inside look at how we operate, how the players are. In terms of being a distraction, I think we’re wired to where we would be able to minimize that. Dirk has been through it. Mike Smith has been through it and I’ve heard positive things from them."
