Will the Glazers dabble in free agency again?

in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

Soon, it will be their game again.

Soon, all of the decisions will belong to them. The evaluation will be theirs. The understanding. The poise under pressure.

The credit card.

Soon, this game will leave the hands of Josh McCown and Gerald McCoy, and of Lavonte David and Mike Evans. Soon, this game will only partially matter to Lovie Smith and Jason Licht.

This game will belong to the Glazers. Lock, stock and pay stubs.

Since the vast majority of personnel decisions last year were failures, someone has to be accountable. Since Lovie has more guaranteed money than Licht, Licht should be fired as GM and Lovie should be fired as (co)selector of free agents but retained as head coach and final personnel decisions should be clearly assigned to the new GM. If Lovie is unwilling to relinquish his personnel role, he should be fired too. Anything short of this invites further personnel selection disaster.

You’re going to fire the gm after one season?

I did not think it was possible but L and L made this o-line worse then last year!

I think the fans in Tampa will demand that the Glazers spend plenty in Free Agency, if they expect to sell tickets.
Speaking to the O Line, Mankins, Collins, and Smith were all good players, before they came here to Tampa.
The question is, do we just Eat their big contracts, or maybe try to salvage them with a new coach, and a better scheme ?

Collins had started nine games over the previous three years. He wasn’t good. Smith started one year. Good? Mankins had shown signs of wear.
