On Tuesday, the Buccaneers claimed tight end Jordan Leggett off waivers. Leggett was cut loose by the Jets and newly minted interim GM Adam Gase earlier this week.
Although he hasn’t done much at the pro level, there was a real market for Leggett’s services. Four other teams besides the Bucs entered claims for the Clemson product, Manish Mehta of the Daily News (on Twitter) hears.
Leggett, a fifth-round pick in 2017, lost his rookie year to a preseason knee injury. In 2018, Leggett appeared in 15 games, but finished out with just 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. All in all, he saw time on 326 offensive plays and 93 special teams plays.
