LeGrand returns to MetLife Stadium, where his life was forever changed nearly two years ago. In October 2010, LeGrand fractured two vertebrae and a spinal cord injury against Army.

Since LeGrand was injury, he has received many awards for his courage in recovering from this injury. His football career was ended on the field against Army.

LeGrand has been asked to participate in the coin toss by the Giants. In May, LeGrand signed a contract with the Bucs and retired in July. He is a honorary member of the Bucs.

Former Rutgers head coach and first-year Bucs head coach Greg Schiano signed LeGrand to the contract. This will be the first time that Schiano returns to MetLife Stadium since the incident.

This will be the second time that LeGrand returns to the Stadium since that October day two years ago.
