Black Monday lived up to its hype and the NFL is now looking to fill
The Buccaneers were the first team to relieve their head coach of his duties following the completion of the season. Soon followed by the Jets http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com...ith-jersey , Dolphins, Bengals, Cardinals, and Broncos. Mix in the two in season firings - Packers and Browns - and you have eight openings to be filled.Our goal here is to streamline the rumors, hires, and news on all these teams and the coaching candidates around the league. Continue to check back for the latest on the openings from around the league as the rumor mill continues to heat up.Tampa Bay BuccaneersJason Licht said that this will be an outside hire and that the person chosen can determine which position coaches are retained. There will be no internal candidatesPer Ian Rapoport, he received a text from Bruce Arians saying “I know Jason, so I would listen” regarding Bucs’ HC vacancyBucs have requested an interview with Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric BieniemyAlex Marvez reports Bucs have interest in Jack Del Rio and Jim Caldwell and that Bucs’ interest in Arians is “legit”Former head coach Dirk Koetter is the leading candidate to become the Falcons offensive coordinator, per D.

That leads us to the new look Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have an opportunity here to make up for what appears to be a swing and a miss on Ronald Jones in the draft last year. If they are one of the teams interested in Hunt, they can certainly get him at an affordable rate on a “prove you can stay out of trouble” type deal.The other thing to bear in mind is new head coach Bruce Arians. He has no qualms about taking on troubled players and giving them second chances to become better men while continue to follow their dream. The most obvious example of this is Tyrann Mathieu.Arians spoke about this in his book, “The Quarterback Whisperer” where he goes into detail as to why he selected Mathieu in his first draft as a head coach and what makes him give these players opportunities;There is no excuse for Hunt’s actions. Could it have been avoided? Yes. Could he have walked away? Absolutely. Is it worse than what some other active players in the NFL have done in the past, including former teammate Tyreek Hill? No. That doesn’t make it better or okay in any way, but it also doesn’t mean Hunt should be banned forever.Heck, Joe Mixon was one of the most talked about running backs in the league this season and his video was far worse.No, the issue was that Hunt didn’t come clean when he had the chance. The Chiefs felt betrayed and they were lied to. That didn’t sit well and Hunt was out the door.Kareem Hunt improves the Buccaneers immediately. There is no debate there. The debate is whether or not Bucs fans would accept him, the public image of the team http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com...ger-jersey , and whether or not ownership would sign off on it.I get the feeling that if Arians wants him on the team, he’ll present a compelling case to GM Jason Licht - as well as ownership if need be - as to why the team needs him and what Arians himself will do to help Hunt become a better person, a better man, and get him any kind of help he may need so that this issue is simply a speed bump on the long career road of the former Toledo Rocket.If this subject was addressed with the previous staff in place, I would say there is no chance that the Bucs even sniff bringing in Hunt. However, with Arians at the helm and his propensity to give guys the chance they need to make up for past mistakes, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the Buccaneers were one of the teams interested.No risk it, no biscuit. Right?
