Arians appeared on the Loose Cannons podcast over the weekend and warned his team a grueling training camp is upcoming.
"When our guys come back, and that's my job, I'm going to beat the s--t out of them," Arians said. "We're going back to basics, and we're going to have one hell of a training camp and know what our foundation is."
The Bucs are the first Super Bowl-winning team in the salary-cap era (1994) to return all 22 starters, a modern-day miracle given how many free agents they had hit the open market. It's a testament to the commitment of the locker room that guys decided to spurn potentially bigger offers to stay in Tampa, with running back Leonard Fournette being the final name to sign on the dotted line.
As long as Arians' plan to "beat" the veteran-laden team into shape works, there's little reason to believe the Bucs won't be competing deep into the playoffs next season.
