After a brief Memorial Day weekend break, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back to the field for their third week of OTA practices.

The coaching staff was intent on maintaining a high tempo during the two-hour workout Tuesday morning.

Tight end Kellen Winslow hit the field at Tuesday's OTA for the first time in weeks after being excused from some summer practices in advance. Winslow's return allowed competing quarterbacks Byron Leftwich, Josh Johnson, Luke McCown, and Josh Freeman to target another dynamic pass catcher.

Wide receiver Maurice Stovall and defensive tackle Roy Williams also join the team again after minor injuries incurred in practices.

It is reported that after weeks of listening to modern tunes at practice, the team was introduced to a '60s and '70s music set this morning, ranging from The Beatles to Foghat. Maybe Morris and the staff were trying to shake things up a bit.

Specifically, players completed a series of drills with minimal rest in between, and players were reminded that every athlete should seek to nail their plays each time. Quick-fire passes were thrown, fumbles were rolled, and sideline catches were simulated.

Practice will continue today, and more information about the outcome of the drills will be available later in the afternoon.
