On the day the NFL announced that New Orleans Saint Jonathan Vilma would be suspended for a year (among others penalized) as a result of the Bountygate scandal came one of the best sports stories you will hear all year.This week, on the heels of the NFL draft, teams announce the signings of undrafted free agents. A very select few such as New York Giant Victor Cruz become stars. The overwhelming majority will never play a game.Eric LeGrand, a defensive tackle out of Rutgers, will be signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like the majority of free agents, he will not make the final roster.LeGrand was paralyzed in a game against Army in 2010.He was signed anyway. Tampa Bay is coached by his former college coach, Greg Schiano.“Leading up to the draft, I couldn’t help but think that this should’ve been Eric’s draft class,” Schiano said in a statement. “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.”LeGrand, issued No. 52, will have some role with the team. He has made noted progress, and has shown signs he has a bright future in an announcing career if he chooses that path.
