Jason Licht Primed To Deal

Is Jason Licht licking his chops now that the Titans are loaded with draft picks?

Is Jason Licht licking his chops now that the Titans are loaded with draft picks?

Whaddya know! Jason Licht’s good friend and former right-hand man in Tampa is freshly flush with a pile of draft picks.

Let the games begin!

Joe is talking (again) about today’s blockbuster Rams-Titans trade. Los Angeles now owns the No. 1 overall pick.

If you missed it, Tennessee dumped the No. 1 slot, along with their fourth- and sixth-round picks in 2016, to Los Angeles for the following picks: No. 15, No. 43 and No. 45 overall in 2016, plus the Rams’ first-round and third-round picks in 2017.

New Titans general manager Jon Robinson is tight with Licht, as Joe referenced. Tennessee has many needs, and now the ammo to trade up.

Joe could see Licht swapping his No. 9 overall pick with Robinson for the No. 15 spot and the No. 45 overall spot. Damn, that would give the Bucs serious options to stock up on talent, or maybe even trade up into the end of the first round. In that scenario, perhaps the Bucs snatch cornerback Eli Apple or speedy wide receiver Will Fuller, and then bag defensive end manbeast Emmanuel Ogbah.

The Titans might be eager to deal if they the left tackle they need is there when the Bucs are on the clock at No. 9.

Robinson also knows the deep Buccaneers offensive line intimately, and perhaps he’d get creative for a guy like Joe Hawley or Demar Dotson. The Titans’ O-line is young and atrocious.

Exciting times, Bucs fans. Joe suggests you drink ice cold beer with Joe on draft night.

    If Stanley is there trade will happen.

  2. Bucsfanman Says:

    I find this scenario to be more palatable than drafting OT ourselves.

  3. Waterboy Says:

    Could Tunsil potentially fall to #9? Who besides Philly needs an OT? Tennessee might be willing to stay put at 15 and take the tackle out of Michigan State if both Tunsil and Staley are off the board.

  4. HarlemBuc Says:

    Yeah… So I had a feeling that Jon Robinson was our best kept secret until this happened… He just pulled off a heist… Robinson was our biggest offseason loss by far.
    However, he has set a price point. You want glennon it’s a 2nd rounder or better. Ok Mr. Licht let’s see your chops now!!!
    If I’m jameis I’m pissed that mariotta is getting this upper hand… But I’m also intrigued because silly/smokescreen season is over. $//*¥ just got very real…
    We need Jalen Ramsey. Period and then period again.

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is LA going after a QB @ 1?

  6. HarlemBuc Says:

    Plus why is jay z in Tampa? And at one buc, talking to jameis? On an off day, two weeks ahead of his wife’s concert?!
    Joe, I’m smelling a buy in!!! I remember when Hova did this to the New Jersey Nets only to bring them to Brooklyn…
    Mind you I am the only only poster to note that New York City would love a Brooklyn NFL Team since the jets won’t come over. I have also said on this site that the Brooklyn Buccaneers are intriguing as F_€£…
    And Beyoncé is doing a show at Raymond James? Why? Y’all better get ready!!! I smell relocation.
    Joe holla @ me although you never have but this smells funny and I take the subway past the potential bucs new stadium at Brooklyn yards every day buddy

  7. HarlemBuc Says:

    Brooklyn bucs?!

  8. BuccFanInHawkeyeCountry Says:

    Perfect world draft

    Cowboys- Bosa
    Ravens-Stanley (Ramsey falls this far trade up)
    49ers- Buckner
    Eagles Elliott
    Bucs- Ramsey

    Will it happen? Most likely not, but dude can dream right haha

  9. The Buc Realist Says:

    One has to wonder,,,, if the 2015 schedule was not historically soft,,,, was that to be The Bucs #1 overall pick to be traded????

  10. Dave Says:

    That’s about the only trade scenario that makes sense. Trade back several picks and get another 2nd.
    They can then get a DE, DB and WR and still have round 3-4 for a OL and maybe another DE

  11. Buccfan37 Says:

    Speaking of Brooklyn, that was a good Ken Burns special on Jackie Robinson on PBS. The Bucs ain’t going nowhere… I think.

  12. Tom S. Says:

    I would not be surprised at all if there was already discussion of “If Stanley is available and we are still sitting at 15 we will give you 15 and 45.” between Licht and Robinson.

    Of course 15 and 45 could net them the 7th overall pick by trade points so it’s not like the Rams couldn’t use that package to move a little higher.

  13. Pirate n packerland Says:

    No way New York gets another football team. Alaska will get a team before Brooklyn.

  14. MadMax Says:

    Haha, yep, that was the first thing to pop in my mind when I saw this trade occur and why I said it in the Rams at Buccaneers topic first. It completely makes sense!!!! If Stanley is there, and probably will be, THIS HAS TO HAPPEN!!

    Man, what a nice haul it would be to trade back to 15 plus one of their 2nds and one of their 3rds. We could still land Conklin if we want to go O line, then move back up for Ogbah. I think Fuller will fall to the 2nd, his dropsies, uhg! But that can be coached, speed cant. And if we dont go O line first, then go Lawson, L. Floyd or Dodd. Ahhhhh!!! I have to get some sleep fo work tonight and mind brain is racing over 1000 mph right now thinking of so many possible scenarios lol.

  15. scott fitzgerald Says:

    Ogbah will be gone, honestly I beliueve we take him at 9. The dude is a freak of nature and a good kid

  16. Dan Says:

    Bosa might make it to #9 now

  17. scott fitzgerald Says:

    If Bosa is there we take him but, Ogbah if not. Maybe Hargreaves but, Ogbah could be serious if coached up by Hayes

  18. unbelievable Says:

    Realist it’s 2016, who cares?

  19. salish_seamonster Says:

    Beer isn’t meant to be ice cold Joe. Of course when you drink the swillwater you seem to prefer, perhaps that’s necessary to numb things up so you don’t taste the crap you’re guzzling.

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    The Bucs will NEVER move. Period.

  21. Jj Says:

    If we trade back we can get one of the 2 corners that actually make sense for us. Mackensie or Eli. Plenty of depth @ top of the 2nd.

  22. Dave Says:


    . Very few beers are meant to actually be room temperature.

  23. 813bucboi Says:

    I like William Jackson over eli apple…if we take any de besides bosa at #9 or #15 it will be a reach….Lawson, dodd, ogbah are all very late first early second round talents…GO BUCS!!!

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    Trading back a few spots in the 1st round and picking up an extra 2nd rd pick is EXACTLY what the Bucs would love to do in this draft. Would be perfect – especially if its with the Rams because there will be lots of good players to choose from at 15. If they intend to get one of the DEs (Dodd, Lawson, Spence, Ogbah) it would be so much better and more appropriate value to pick one of those guys at 15 instead of 9.

  25. Thomas Bowery Says:

    Let The Madness begin.

  26. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    Joe pease pleas stop trying to give us Will Fuller I’m the second round. HE CANNOT CATCH THE BALL!! We already of a receiver with cement gloves for hands in Evans why do you want another one? Take Conklin at 15 and Ogbah. An William Jackson the 3rd that would satisfy needs with best players available. Win win

  27. Tom of Steel Says:

    if we can movefrom 9 to 15 and get an extra second round pick then that’s great. But we shouldn’t trade back up in the first round we could come out of the first two rounds with three starters we need depth all over the defense we need a starting safety a starting defensive end. And we don’t need any of these average wide receivers in the early rounds they have bad hands

  28. Tom of Steel Says:

    these so-called experts think trading back up in the first round is a good idea all the time. It isn’t really. Giving away draft picks when the draft is a gamble is just moronic. Especially for a wide receiver that isn’tworth a first-round or a second-round pick

  29. Tom of Steel Says:

    trade points and that stupid chart that tells you what each draft pick is worth and blah blah blah blah blah is worthless it means nothing because it all depends on what the team wants for their draft pick.
