Buccaneers | GM has high expectations

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:37:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said he expects the team to compete for the NFC South title in 2014. "It's crazy," Licht said. "We'll look back at what we've added and … I'm legitimately excited and feel like we have a chance to compete for the division title. I really do. You would think, with a first-year head coach and a first-year general manager … we would both have a pass if we wanted to say, you know, I think we need some more time to turn this thing around. But that's not what we think. We think we can make a run at this thing this year. We feel we've got some major pieces in place to do that."
