Tampa Bay Buccaneers
There's a new sheriff in town. His name is head coach Greg Schiano. Martin Fennelly of the Tampa Tribune, saw the first 30 minutes of the Buccaneers voluntary minicamp on Tuesday. He was thoroughly impressed with the way Schiano ran practice and with how the players are reacting to their new coach.

John Manasso of Fox Sports South said the team still hasn't announced a decision on whether it will welcome in the HBO camera for the 2012 version of Hard Knocks, but thinks the team will shine if it accepts the national spotlight.
