Default Good NFL news: Buccaneers sign injured Eric Legrand (Rutger, paralyzed)

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/78...mbolic-gesture

LeGrand initially was told he would be a quadriplegic and would have to remain on a ventilator.

Five weeks later, LeGrand began breathing on his own. Later, he became able to stand upright with the aid of a metal frame.

LeGrand resumed his studies in spring 2011. He led the Scarlet Knights onto the field for an Oct. 29, 2011, game and has remained close with Schiano.


It may be symbolic, but the Buccaneers' signing of paralyzed Rutgers DT Eric LeGrand was a very classy move

"Leading up to the draft, I couldn't help but think that this should've been Eric's draft class," Schiano said. "This small gesture is the least we could do to recognize his character, spirit and perseverance. The way Eric lives his life epitomizes what we are looking for in Buccaneer Men."

The Buccaneers also decided to make the signing May 2, to represent LeGrand's college number (52).

Offsets bountygate a little?

That's cool. Last year Mark Herzlich was the guy recovering from a bad illness that many thought would prevent him from playing in the NFL. He went undrafted and then signed with the Giants, and won a Super Bowl in his rookie year. Good luck Mr. Legrand!

Haynesworth replacement? All kidding aside that is the best story in sports I have seen in long time. I will be rooting for TB on Sunday Ticket this year.
