Eric LeGrand signed by Tampa Bay

From Jaffe Communications, which you can find HERE:
TAMPA BAY - In a symbolic gesture, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the signing of former Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand. LeGrand whose career was ended by a spinal cord injury over two years ago, has become a symbol of hope to millions. "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," said former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano. The team decided to make the signing on May 2 to symbolize LeGrand's college number (52).

So now I have a reason to root for a team.  I'm a Buccaneers fan now, (in addition to being a Giants fan by default.)
