Heartwarming story...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Bucs sign paralyzed former Rutgers player LeGrand
Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Sports (03.05.2012 00:13)

From what I can see, this kid sure is an impressive young man.  I am sure he has his moments (who, having been dealt such a hand, wouldn't?), BUT he sure seems to have a thoughtful perspective and positive attitude.  I am rooting for him!

NFL.com (08.05.2012 19:37)
Former NFL players are living longer than other men in the general population, said a study the league sent to retirees Tuesday.
