Everyone seems to be using an iPad these days. So, why not professional football players? An iPad 2 has been given to each of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 90 players. The iPads are loaded with playbooks, game videos as well as practice and situational videos of any NFL team.

Bucs Coach Raheem Morris sees it as providing solutions for a lot of needs ranging from simplyfing the process of letting players take a game “film” home to providing a study enticement for young players.

As for security? Morris says that it far simpler to deal with a remote wipe for a lost iPad than tracking down a paper playbook forgotten in a hotel room.
