According to Pro Football Talk, the Bucs are down to three general manager candidates.
Falcons director of player personnel Lionel Vital is staying in Atlanta, which looks like he knows he’s not getting the job. Lots of people reported he’s the leading candidate.
With him gone, the Bucs are left with Cardinals director of player personnel Jason Licht, Giants V.P. of player evaluation Marc Ross, and Titans director of player personnel Lake Dawson.
No word has been said about when the hire will happen but Lovie Smith said (via Pro Football Talk) that he plans to hire soon.
