The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Thursday that they have waived fourth-year tight end
Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate are the frontrunners for playing time at the tight end position.
Leggett was on the team but didn’t register a snap last season. His best season was in 2018 with action in 15 games and four starts with 14 catches for 114 yards and a TD.
He was a former fifth-round draft pick out of Clemson and was due to make $825,000 in 2020.
The Bucs’ roster is set at 84 players.
