Buccaneers’ GM celebrated win over New Orleans in impressive fashion
If the Buccaneers’ next win was anything like their first, it may result in general manager Jason Licht having to buy a new suit, according to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN.
Licht made a deal with his three children that if the Buccaneers beat the Saints in Week 2, he would jump into their pool in his suit.
The Buccaneers won, 26-19, leading to Licht making good on his promise as soon as he walked through the door.
"It was a moment of ‘Yes!’" Licht told ESPN. "It was the best win I’ve ever experienced besides winning the Super Bowl with the Patriots. Just because it was coming off the first week of the season, when we knew that wasn’t the team we had [in a loss to Tennessee].
"It was just great to see the young rookie QB [Jameis Winston] manage the game. Our entire town needed a win. It needs hope. And it gave us a lot of hope."
And a hefty dry-cleaning bill. The Bucs host Carolina (3-0) on Sunday.
