NEWARK, N.J. -- Paralyzed Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand has a new job.
The commercials were filmed two weeks ago and will air this fall.
LeGrand, who was paralyzed making a tackle in a game against Army in 2010, has had a remarkable year. The New Jersey native was signed to an NFL contract by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his former Scarlet Knights coach, Greg Schiano, shortly after the NFL draft in April. The 21-year-old, who has vowed to walk again, also will receive the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYs this month.
