When Jason Licht arrived in 2014, the Buccaneers were a mess. They were coming off of a 4-12 season that was embroiled in the Greg Schiano/Josh Freeman mess. After a 1,400 yard rookie season, Doug Martin played in only six games and rushed for just over 400 yards. There wasn’t a lot that was going on.
Out goes Mark Dominik, in comes Jason Licht. Three years later, the Bucs are over the .500 mark and on the cusp of the playoffs. Obviously the players have a lot to do with that, but there also must be a fair share of credit given to Licht. He put the mix of players together that is achieving results. That’s a job that isn’t as easy as it looks, balancing the necessary talent with the personalities. Licht had a lot of work to do to get that done, with more to come.
Here, we are going to take a look at Licht’s time in Tampa so far. Specifically, what are the five best moves he has made during his tenure?
We begin the countdown with number five.
