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.
Bucs make official that they claimed TE Jordan Leggett off waivers from the Jets. Suh move won’t be official today so Leggett can just take McCoy’s spot on the 90-man roster. They’ll make another cut tomorrow.

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.
