OT - Eric LeGrand (paralyzed while playing for Rutgers in 2010) signed by Bucs

In a symbolic gesture, the Tampa Bay Bucs have signed Eric Legrand, who if you all remember, was paralyzed during play against Army while at Rutgers in 2010.  His story of being told he was going to be a quadriplegic on a ventilator his whole life, to now being able to stand with support resonates a lot with us Michigan fans because of Brock Mealer.  Greg Schiano and the Bucs just earned a whole lot of respect from me for making this move.

Schiano has shown support for LeGrand since day one of the accident. Throw PR out the window for reason. He wanted to make someone speacial in his life dream come true. Good for him and the bucs for allowing him to do so. A very classy gesture. I am happy for LeGrand!!
