Licht comes to Tampa after spending last season as the vice president of player personnel for the Cardinals. He previously served as Arizona's director of player personnel in 2012.
Mike Williams, Vincent Jackson and Timothy Wright give the Bucs a legitimate group of pass-catchers on offense to complement one of the NFC's deeper collection of backs. Doug Martin and Mike James pack a strong one-two punch behind Mike Glennon, the young signal-caller Licht and Smith have inherited.
Before the last coach, Greg Schiano, was scattered to the wind, he told the locker room: "We have our quarterback."
Whether or not Licht agrees with the last guy looms as this offseason's top storyline in Tampa.
