Eric LeGrand Visits Buccaneers for 1st Time

Eric LeGrand is making quite an impression on his new teammates.

The paralyzed former Rutgers defensive tackle who signed a symbolic contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited the club’s training complex for the first time Tuesday. He addressed players following practice and later announced his No. 52 jersey will be sold on the internet with proceeds benefiting spinal cord research.

LeGrand broke two vertebrae and suffered a serious spinal cord injury in October 2010 during a kickoff return against Army. He became an inspiration to his college teammates, eventually being able to stand upright with the help of a metal frame. He resumed his studies via video conferences in 2011 and last fall led the Scarlet Knights onto the field before a game.
