The Bucs concluded their final day of practice, today. With another training camp like atmosphere as the team held two practices at One Buc Place. The team will gather for some team building exercise tomorrow, before players and coaches go there separate ways, until they report to training camp on 30 July. A phrase that has not been heard since last year, resurfaced as head coach Raheem Morris told reporters that the 2010 training camp will once again, be about getting the team to become more physically violent.
