The Patriots certainly aren't the only team in the NFL that wants to know every little thing about the opposition.
But what better way to do so than to practice with them? We've already heard of their interest to conduct a joint practice with the Saints prior to their August 9 game at Gillette. Now, the Boston Herald reports there could be another joint practice -- this time with the Buccaneers -- scheduled before the two teams meet on August 24 in Tampa Bay.
Bill Belichick has a longstanding relationship with new Bucs coach, Greg Schiano, formerly of Rutgers. That relationship most likely is the biggest contributing factor in the possible arrangement.
