Game in London Between Bucs and Bears Still Set

As of now, the London game between the Bucs and Bears is set. While a lot would have to happen for that game to be cancelled, the teams are waiting like everyone else for the lockout to end so they can get ready to play ball once again.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report the NFL is aiming to have a new collective bargaining agreement ratified by its July 21 owners meeting in Atlanta, allowing the league to keep the preseason and regular season intact. If this holds true, it has big ramifications for the Bucs. When it was announced that the Bears and Bucs would meet in London on October 23 as part of the NFL’s International Series, there was one caveat: The NFL lockout had to end by August 1. This timeline, if adhered to, would beat that deadline and keep the Bucs overseas for that key “home” game. That probably won’t thrill season-ticket holders who were probably looking forward to what was an attractive home date for Tampa Bay, but it would at least bring some clarity to the situation for the Bucs.
