New general manager Steve Keim made it clear when he got his new post that he wanted to continue to work with Jason Licht. So it wasn’t a stretch to think Licht too would end up with a promotion — assuming he didn’t go somewhere else with a bigger title in the meantime, which could have happened after Licht was named a finalist for the Bears’ GM job last year — and that’s exactly what happened.
Licht was bumped up to vice president of player personnel Tuesday, the job title previously held by Keim. Not only will Licht have a greater say in personnel decisions, but he will also take part in contract negotiations — more groundwork for Licht too to eventually get his own general manager spot.
Licht and Keim work well together and Licht has already put together his own long impressive resume, working in the front office of the Eagles and Patriots. Now he and Keim must find a way to upgrade the Cardinals’ roster. I’d expect someone to eventually get Licht’s old job, so you’d figure the Cards will add at least one more body in the front office, somewhere.
