Description: Eric LeGrand retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thurday. LeGrand, who was paralyzed from the neck down after an on-field collision playing for Rutgers University two years ago, had signed with the team on May 2.
Insight: Obviously LeGrand was never going to play because of his injury so he decided to retire to free up a roster spot as the Buccaneers begin training camp. LeGrand has made great strides in his recovery and was honored earlier this month at the ESPYs with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance.
