“Everyone saw what Kansas City did last season,’’ Licht said. “Why can’t it be us?’’
Last year’s Chiefs went from 2-14 to 11-5. The Bucs were 4-12 last season and a similar turnaround isn’t that hard to picture.
The Bucs already had a fair amount of individual talent with the likes of Gerald McCoy, Lavonte David and Vincent Jackson. They’ve added new players like Alterraun Verner and Michael Johnson. They also have a new coach in Lovie Smith, who has put together a strong staff of assistants.
Licht was with Arizona last season when the Cardinals went 10-6, but didn’t make the playoffs.
“We made some strides and it seemed like people wanted to throw a parade for us, but the fact of the matter is we failed because we didn’t make the playoffs,’’ Licht said. “Being 10-6 would be great for the Bucs this year, but the goal is making it to the dance. If we had any other goal, I’d be very upset.’’
As his team wrapped up minicamp last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht brought up a good point.“Everyone saw what Kansas City did last season,’’ Licht said.
