The Tampa Bay Buccaneers filled the 10th and final spot on their practice squad Tuesday, re-signing third-year tight end Jordan Leggett. The Buccaneers started that process on Sunday by bringing back seven players they had waived during the final roster cuts on Saturday, then added two newcomers on Monday. Leggett is the only player among the 10 who has previous regular-season game experience.
Leggett (6-5, 258) first came to the Buccaneers as a waiver claim from the New York Jets on May 21. A fifth-round draft pick (150th overall) in 2017, he spent the majority of his rookie season on injured reserve but returned last year to play in 15 games with four starts and contribute 14 catches for 114 yards and one touchdown.
Leggett played in all four preseason games for the Buccaneers this summer, starting the fourth contest and finishing with three catches for 39 yards and a touchdown. He also recorded one tackle on special teams. Leggett played his college ball at Clemson and hauled in 112 passes for 1,598 yards and 18 touchdowns.
The Buccaneers will conduct their first regular-season practice on Tuesday morning.
