Bucs make scouting changes

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a new director of player personnel with deep ties to general manager Jason Licht.

Jon Robinson has been hired by the Bucs, according to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss. Robinson and Licht previously worked together with the New England Patriots.

Robinson was with the Patriots since 2002, starting off as an area scout and working his way up to college scouting director in 2009. Eric Stokes, who had been Tampa Bay’s director of college scouting, is headed to Miami. Stokes will work as an assistant to general manager Dennis Hickey, who previously worked in Tampa Bay.
