Classy Signing by the Bucs!
His coach then at Rutgers was Greg Schiano who is now the Head Coach for the Tampa Bay Bucs and he was the driving force behind the signing. The scouting department for Tampa has reports on all players in the draft as well as most of the free agents available including one on LeGrand. The top line of the scouting report read “He never gives up!” The number 52 was free on the Tampa roster and that happens to be the number that Eric wore at Rutgers, so he will be assigned that number and will get all of the official gear including a jersey and a helmet. Obviously he won’t actually play for the team, but he has now reached one of his early goals to make an NFL roster. Again, that is a wonderful gesture by the Tampa Bay organization. Finally some good news coming out of an NFL team, I am tired of the negative stories that are currently coming out of some of the other NFL teams.
This ranks up there with the Texas Rangers drafting UGA outfielder Johnathan Taylor after he suffered a broken neck in a game against FSU. Both Johnathan and Eric are true inspirations!
