Titans plan to hold joint practices with Bucs

Mike Vrabel and Tom Brady, together again... sorta.

The Tennessee Titans are set to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Week 2 of the preseason (8/21). The two teams tentatively have plans to hold joint practices leading up to the game.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians announced the joint practices when asked on a Pewter Report podcast about how to balance preseason snap counts.

“So much of that will depend on how practice goes,” Arians told the Pewter Report. “If we get in and have good OTAs and a good minicamp . . . As training camp’s going on, we’ve got a week set up with the Titans. Hopefully everything goes [well], so we can do that, and we’ll just judge where everybody is at [and decide] how much they play in the preseason.”

This should deliver some excellent sound bites. Remember the last time Mike Vrabel shared a practice field with his old pal Tom Brady? We got this gem.

All kidding aside, this is a terrific idea and we hope it happens. The Buccaneers are Super Bowl champions for a reason. Joint practices between the two teams would be an excellent measuring stick for this new look Titans. It would help the team get right and ready for a long season that kicks off with a difficult game against the Arizona Cardinals before a long road trip to Seattle.
