Spytek has ten-plus years of experience in the NFL, including the last two years with Denver. Spytek was in charge of scouting the Southwest region for the Broncos in 2013 and was promoted to national scout in 2014. Prior to his time with the Broncos, Spytek spent three seasons as the Browns’ director of college scouting. In his time with Cleveland, the Browns produced PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team selections and drafted four players who went on to make the Pro Bowl in 2013.

In other Buccaneers news, GM Jason Licht recently said that the team will be wary of spending big in free agency this spring. For his part, Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander wants to see his team add some tough defensive ends, but it remains to be seen how that will be prioritized given the team’s budget.
