Buccaneers sign Eric LeGrand

3 posts in this topic

Classy move.

 

In a symbolic gesture, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, whose playing career was ended by a spinal cord injury, on Wednesday morning.

 

LeGrand played for Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano at Rutgers. In a game Oct. 16, 2010, against Army, LeGrand suffered fractures of two vertebrae and a spinal cord injury.

Very impressive. I was watching Dancing with the Stars last night and that dancer who had the embolism that paralyzed him was another great story. Wow two heart stoppers in two days. Life does have it's moments.
