In another roster move made throughout the team’s OTA’s period, the Buccaneers have claimed former Jets tight end Jordan Leggett off of waivers.

Originally drafted by New York in 2017, Leggett participated in 15 games during the 2018 season, starting four of them, and totaling 114 yards and one touchdown on 14 receptions.

Leggett played college football at Clemson where he had great production over his four years with the Tigers. With Clemson he saw action all four years and brought in 112 total catches for 1,598 yards and 18 touchdowns.

With O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and perhaps Antony Auclair all in possession of carved out spots with the Bucs, Leggett will likely battle Tanner Hudson and Donnie Ernsberger for the fourth tight end spot.

Very productive college player. Good size and good for potential depth.

Pit, I think they are going to trade or cut Cam to free up $7 M of cap money. Then they’re going to try to sign Leanord Williams with the extra money.

I like the idea 76buc. I think they’d also have to cut JPP to make a little more room. You couldn’t argue with a line that consists of Leonard Williams, Sue, Vea, Nassib. That’s a new look I’d love to see.

Cam Brate is on the books for $7m. The Bucs can’t reduce that number by trading him or cutting him. Brate is here to stay in 2019. This is simply a depth signing. Added bonus : he has a history with Bowles.

If Leggett is of quality in camp then for sure I can see trading TE Brate as he recovers from hip surgery and because of his cap hit. If this free agent TE Leggett is even close in talent and for a third of what Brate makes… well… u just might even look into what a Brate trade might get you back…OL or RB depth??? I’m just saying…

Y’all need to stop with this “trade Cam” business. His contract became FULLY GUARANTEED on Mar 17. This means we pay him whether he is here or not. Even a trade doesn’t remove his cap hit this year. Cameron Brate is a Buccaneer in 2019 no matter what you clowns say. The idiocy astounds
