The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to search for the next general manager, and it appears that they are getting closer to finding their man. At the very least, it appears that a front-runner is emerging for the Buccaneers opening.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the Buccaneers are set to have a second interview with Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Lionel Vital on Tuesday.

Atlanta would obviously prefer not to lose Vital this season, especially to an NFC South rival.

It has also been reported that New York Giants vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross, Washington Redskins director of pro personnel Morocco Brown and Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson are also in the mix to replace Mark Dominik.

We will have to wait and see who gets the call to take over as general manager in Tampa Bay, but it looks like we could be getting closer to an official decision.
