Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman says that the team's starters are focusing in their opening regular season game.

Josh Freeman has said that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' starters have already switched their focus to the regular season.

The NFC South side are likely to rest the majority of their first-string players for their final pre-season game against the Washington Redskins this evening.

The starting quarterback told the team's website: "I'm actually not going to play Thursday night. There are a number of guys, starters, who've already moved on and started prep for the New York Jets.

"I think from the standpoint of training camp and pre-season, I think we got a lot accomplished as an offense. Not necessarily on [pre-season game days], just from the standpoint of adding pieces to our offense or from a practice standpoint.

"I feel like we got to mix it up personnel-wise and got to see what some guys will do in a game-like situation. I definitely think this year's camp was great for me."

The Buccaneers play the Jets in week one on September 8.
