A New Jersey native, LeGrand was injured making a tackle against Army on a kickoff in the stadium in 2010.

LeGrand wore a Bucs’ jersey with the No. 52 and was warmly greeted by the Giants’ crowd before referee Jim Core made the toss. The Bucs called tails and won.

LeGrand was signed by Tampa Bay and former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano after the draft this year. LeGrand retired a few days later. He currently works on the pre-game and halftime radio show for Rutgers football games.
