On a routine play in 2010, Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand sustained a spinal injury while trying to bring down an Army player. Paralyzed from the neck down, it seemed likely that LeGrand would never occupy a roster spot on another football team. But that ended up not being the case.
After hiring his former coach at Rutgers, Greg Schiano, in the offseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed LeGrand to their 90-day offseason roster. Their explanation for doing so is touching and should be read in full after you follow Eric on Twitter.
