Best and Worst Moves the Buccaneers Made in Free Agency
John Raoux/Associated Press

Lovie Smith blew into Tampa Bay on the heady winds of change and wasted little time in transforming the team in his image.

The Buccaneers were one of one the most active teams in free agency this offseason. Smith and general manager Jason Licht moved quickly to add pieces to positions weakened by years of poor drafts and free-agent misfires.

The biggest changes were made to the Bucs offensive line. After jettisoning veterans Davin Joseph, Donald Penn and Jeremy Zuttah, the Bucs added Anthony Collins and Evan Dietrich-Smith to fill the void.

The Bucs also parted ways with cornerback Darrelle Revis, just one year after trading a first- and fourth-round pick to acquire him from the New York Jets.

The wisdom of these moves won't be truly clear until after the 2014 season. Nonetheless, some of the moves Smith and his regime made were obvious winners, while others were not quite so hot.

These are the best and worst moves the Buccaneers made in free agency (so far).
