Rookies seldom have an edge over veterans when the training camp battle for roster spots begins, but Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano believes his rookies will have a decided edge.
Because they will spend an extra week learning and working in the new offensive and defensive schemes Schiano and his staff have adopted, Bucs rookies have a unique opportunity to win jobs that might otherwise go to veterans.
"(The veterans) have a head start on being veterans, but they don't have a head start in this specific scheme,'' Schiano said. "So I've told our rookies that this is a great opportunity to prepare yourself to battle for a job."
