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.
