Along with the roster overhaul, the Bucs will also be transitioning to new playbooks on both sides of the ball.
Jeff Tedford brings his impressive offensive resume from the collegiate level, where he commanded prolific offenses at Cal, while former Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has been brought it to administer Lovie Smith's Tampa 2 defense.
Tedford has plenty of experience as a play-caller in the college game, but this will be his first foray into the NFL. His offenses have favored the run consistently in the past, so look for the Bucs to try and establish that early and often. A weaker stable of guards might not help Tedford accomplish his goals on the ground, but a deep stable of running backs will be useful.
A quick passing game will be helpful as well, considering the amount of chemistry that still needs to be built up front.
On defense, things will be plenty simpler, as the Tampa 2 returns to the city that made the scheme famous under Tony Dungy and Monte Kiffin. Key players such as Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David have already drawn comparisons to Hall of Famers Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks, and they should thrive in their new scheme.
With new playbooks to digest heading into the first preseason game, don't expect to see too many fireworks on either side of the ball. Coaches are still in the process of installing the nuances of each scheme, and they're unlikely to show off any tricks until the regular season begins.
Still, it will be interesting to see how different things look on the field against the Jags in comparison to last year under Greg Schiano and his staff.
