Lovie Smith has total control in Tampa Bay; Coach will get final say on 53 man roster
You do not get to see this that often, which is pretty cool. Head coach Lovie Smith sat out a year and now has total control in his return.
According to Adam Schefter, Lovie Smith’s contract contains the clause that gives him final say over all personnel matters on the Buccaneers’ final 53-man roster.
That sounds like it could be good news for guys like Darrelle Revis. It is interesting to see a team give a coach the final call, usually that is up to the GM, so it could deter a good GM from coming to town.
