Last year the Buccaneers utilized their sixth round pick on linebacker Jack Cichy after a solid career as a Wisconsin Badger. Injured his senior year at Wisconsin, Cichy finished with six and a half sacks and 15 tackles for loss and looked to have a promising career after a big sophomore season in college.

In six games with the Buccaneers a year ago, Cichy tallied three solo tackles. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL in the same game that Kwon Alexander did against the Cleveland Browns and just returned to practice last week.
His knee has looked fine as Cichy has been flying around the field and hunting the football, as the PewterReport has been documenting it all. While Lavonte David and Devin White have the starting spots in the middle of Bowles’ defense locked down, Cichy and Deone Bucannon have been running the second team defense.
David has been out with swelling in his knee over the past few days, and Cichy has been taking some additional reps, and taking advantage of them. If Cichy can stay healthy, he could be a key piece towards the Buccaneers’ depth and even a situational starter for the pewter and red.
