Report: Buccaneers had not yet made a decision on Hickey’s future

While one published report Sunday indicated the Buccaneers were going to part ways with director of player personnel Dennis Hickey after the draft, another report Sunday claims the club hadn’t yet made up its mind on Hickey.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, new Buccaneers G.M. Jason Licht was slated to meet with Hickey on Wednesday, and Hickey’s future was to be “evaluated” as he remained on the personnel staff.

Earlier Sunday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported that the Buccaneers were expected to let Hickey go after the draft.

The Dolphins hired Hickey as General Manager on Sunday.

  1. REPORT: Buccaneers had not made decision on whether Hickey gets to keep Executive Washroom key.

  2. Backtrack by the Glazers.

    Wait, we might want to do business with the Dolphins over the next five years. Hickey might make some terrible personnel decisions that we can be on the plus side of.

  3. Whether Hickey is successful as GM hinges on whether Tannehill keeps improving and becomes a top 12 QB or remains mediocre. QB’s like Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Brees, and Luck hide a lot of warts on a team(look at Green Bay record without Rodgers and Denver without Manning). It is as simple as that folks. I thought he had turned the corner after the Pittsburgh and New England games, but the Buffalo, NY Jets games created doubt moving forward.

  4. I agree 100% with Sod61, this is all about Tannehill, he will either make Hickey and Hickey’s picks look fantastic or terrible. If he goes out there next season and it all starts to click (like most good QBs in their 3rd season) he will easily hide the bad moves Hickey makes and nobody will care. Peyton, Brady, Brees and many others did not just immediately have sucess, they failed and looked below average their first 2 seasons and then it started to click as they became comfortable.

  5. I learn from my source that most Dolphin reporters don’t know crap about what the dolphins are going to do, they live to repeat what other reporters are saying, of course my INSIDE source is on top of his game. Bill

  6. For the whole season, including good games and bad, Tannehil was 10th in passing yards, and 12th in TD passes. And this with no reliable run game to speak of, being sacked 58 times, and running for his life most other plays.

    Anything but mediocre. Imagine the difference a better line and some help from the run game might make. Not to mention a new OC with some modern ideas, as opposed to the dinosaur they finally let go.

    Tannehill was knocking on the door of top 10 last year. He will walk through it, and into the postseason this year.
