Leggett was waived by the Broncos on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The 26-year-old finished the season on Denver's practice squad and subsequently signed a reserve/future contract, but he's now been let go by the team. Leggett caught 14 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown in 15 games for the Jets during 2018, but he hasn't seen the field over the past two seasons.

The Broncos signed Leggett to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett hasn't played an NFL game since recording a 14-114-1 line over 15 contests with the Jets in 2018. The Clemson product will aim to secure a depth role in 2021.

Leggett signed with the Broncos practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Leggett last made an appearance on an NFL field in 2018 as a member of the Jets when he registered 14 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown over 15 games. The Clemson product was waived by the Buccaneers in July after a brief stint with the team's practice squad, but he'll now have a chance with a Broncos team that placed Albert Okwuegbunam on injured reserve Nov. 10 because of an ACL injury.

Leggett is no longer expected to sign with New England, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: A Monday report suggested Leggett was ready to sign with the team once he passed a COVID-19 test and a physical exam. It isn't clear if something went wrong with one of the tests or if the Patriots simply decided they didn't need the 25-year-old tight end. Leggett spent time on the Bucs' 53-man roster last season but was a healthy scratch for each game. His last regular-season appearance came in 2018, when he caught 14 passes in 15 games (four starts) for the Jets.

Leggett is expected to sign with the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Per the report, as long as all goes well with his COVID-19 testing and physical, the Patriots plan to sign Leggett. With Matt LaCosse having opted out of the 2019 season, the Patriots are looking to add some experience at the tight end position to complement 2020 draftees Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene. Leggett last saw regular-season game action in 2018, when he caught 14 passes for 114 yards and a TD with the Jets.

The Buccaneers waived Leggett on Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett face long odds to make the regular-season roster in tight end room composed of Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate. After last taking the field Week 17 of the 2018 season with the Jets, Leggett may have to play the waiting game before getting a call from another organization.
Jul 30, 2020 4:21 PM EST
Leggett signed a reserve/futures contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Leggett spent the latter half of the year on the team's active roster but never played a snap. He'll have another chance to seek playing time in 2020.
Dec 31, 2019 3:11 PM EST
The Buccaneers signed Leggett to the practice squad Thursday.
Analysis: Tampa Bay waived Leggett on Tuesday, and he now rejoins the team as a member of the practice squad. The third-year pro had spent eight weeks on the team's active roster, but he hadn't been active for a single contest.

Leggett was waived by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett spent each of the last eight weeks on the Bucs' 53-man roster but was inactive for gameday each time. Cornerback John Franklin took the 24-year-old's spot on the team.
Dec 24, 2019 2:08 PM EST
Leggett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Lions, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett still hasn't taken the field since being activated from the practice squad Oct. 30. As per usual, O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson will serve as Tampa Bay's tight ends Week 15.
Dec 15, 2019 9:10 AM EST
Leggett (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett is still waiting for his first appearance in game action after he was activated from the practice squad Oct. 30. His absence paves the way for O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson to handle tight end duties for the game.
Dec 8, 2019 8:52 AM EST
Leggett (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett has yet to suit up in game action after he was activated from the practice squad Oct. 30. His absence paves the way for O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson to handle tight end duties for the game.
Dec 1, 2019 8:39 AM EST
Leggett (coach's decision) is inactive for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Buccaneers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: Leggett has not been active for any games this season, and was only promoted from the practice squad on October 30. Cameron Brate, O.J. Howard and Tanner Hudson will be the active tight ends for the team in Week 12.
Nov 24, 2019 9:00 AM EST
Leggett (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Analysis: The 24-year-old has yet to suit up in any games this season, so this news isn't quite surprising. Without Leggett in the lineup, the team will roll with O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson at tight end.
Nov 17, 2019 8:38 AM EST
Leggett signed to the Buccaneers' practice squad Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The third-year tight end wasn't able to show much in preseason, but the fact one of his three catches went for a touchdown and that he does bring 16 games of NFL regular-season experience didn't hurt his cause for a practice squad spot. The Buccaneers ultimately went with four tight ends on the final 53-man roster due to Tanner Hudson's stellar exhibition slate, so Leggett would likely need multiple injuries in front of him to be called up to the active roster.
Sep 1, 2019 9:36 PM EST
Leggett brought in his only target for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 13-12 preseason win over the Browns on Friday.
Analysis: Leggett hasn't had many opportunities to showcase his skills this preseason, but he certainly made a mark in Friday's contest. Leggett's 20-yard touchdown marked the only time the Buccaneers visited the end zone, and it allowed him to make an impression in a game where fellow reserve tight end Anthony Auclair exited with a calf injury. Despite the success, Leggett would seemingly need a monumental performance in Thursday's preseason finale to measure up to the excellent summer that position mate Tanner Hudson has put together.
Aug 25, 2019 8:30 PM EST
Leggett was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Leggett was waived by the Jets on Monday, and quickly found a new team. The 24-year-old had a quiet tenure in New York, making 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. If he's able to make the team, Leggett likely won't produce favorable results in the fantasy world.
May 21, 2019 2:23 PM EST
Leggett was waived by the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Leggett's two seasons in New York were wholly uneventful, as he did not see the field during his rookie year due to injury and caught only 14 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown last season. The 2017 fifth-round pick will look to latch on elsewhere for a fresh start in year three.
May 20, 2019 2:04 PM EST
Leggett finished the 2018 season with 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: A knee injury kept Leggett from suiting up in his first year after being selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft, so this season represented his first taste of NFL action. He appears destined to remain behind fellow youngster Chris Herndon on the tight end depth chart for years to come.
Jan 5, 2019 6:00 PM EST
Leggett hauled in his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 44-38 overtime loss to the Packers.
Analysis: At the same time, starting tight end Chris Herndon finished with a career-high 82 receiving yards and a touchdown. The gulf between these two young tight ends seems to be growing, leaving Leggett a distant No. 2.
