Falcons president and former GM Rich McKay made his bones in Tampa Bay (he also won a Super Bowl), and now according to a twitter report, McKay could be headed back to rebuild the franchise that gave him his start. Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported that the Bucs will potentially talk to McKay about returning to Tampa.
From Schefter's twitter:
McKay became the team president in 2008 after serving as Falcons GM from 2003-2007. During that time, the Falcons won a division title and advanced to the 2004-2005 NFC championship game. He was replaced by Thomas Dimitroff in 2008 after the Bobby Petrino debacle after the 2007 season.
If McKay does leave, he'll be reunited with new coach Lovie Smith, who was the linebackers coach when McKay was GM of the Bucs.
We'll keep you posted if any news develops.
