One of the more exciting and "up and coming" teams in the NFL is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, making it a perfect fit for this year's season of HBO's Hard Knocks.

NFL Fans and HBO subscribers will get an inside look at the Bucs' Training Camp over the five episode season. Typically beginning around the first week of the NFL Preseason, fans can expect the first episode to air sometime in the first week of August.

The Bucs reportedly were bidding for the opportunity to be featured on the show this season. Tampa Bay was 9-7 last season and made major strides with promising young QB, Jameis Winston. Now entering his third year in the league, Winston should have the wherewithal to focus on the the importance of Camp and Preseason and not the bright lights that comes with the Hard Knocks spotlight. 

The roster should have plenty of "characters" to make this season of HBO's hit show a larger success compared to last season which featured the Los Angeles Rams.
