A sloppy day of practice for Patriots, Buccaneers

FOXBOROUGH — Tuesday’s joint practice with the Patriots and Buccaneers was certainly very physical, and the starting units on both teams got a ton of work; 95 percent of the work in team drills was starting offense vs. starting defense.

What the practice wasn’t, though, was crisp or well executed. Perhaps the constant rain had something to do with it, but players were slipping all over the field, receivers were dropping footballs, and Tom Brady’s throws seemed to be more off the mark than usual.
