Jordan Leggett: Cut by Bucs

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.

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.

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.

Jordan Leggett: Heading to practice squad

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.

Jordan Leggett: Makes good use of one catch

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.

Jordan Leggett: Finds new home

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.

Jordan Leggett: Parts ways with Jets

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.

Jordan Leggett: Catches 14 balls in 2018

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.

Jordan Leggett: Held to one catch again

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.

December 23, 2018 5:16 PM EST

Jordan Leggett: One catch in Week 14

Leggett (knee) caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo.

Analysis: The Jets didn't get much production out of the tight end position, as Chris Herndon finished with just one more yard than Leggett on the same number of targets and catches.

December 9, 2018 6:15 PM EST

Jordan Leggett: Suiting up Sunday

Leggett (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bills.

Analysis: Leggett plays second fiddle to Chris Herndon but he has received six targets over the last two games. His fantasy value is negligible still with just 77 total yards and one touchdown this year.

Jordan Leggett: Questionable Week 14

Leggett (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Leggett was a limited practice participant throughout the week and appears on track to play Sunday. Eric Tomlinson would serve as the Jets' No. 2 tight end should Leggett be unable to suit up at Buffalo.

December 7, 2018 10:08 AM EST

Jordan Leggett: Limited in practice

Leggett (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Leggett appears to have picked up a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Titans. If he were to miss any time, Eric Tomlinson would serve as the top backup to starting tight end Chris Herndon.

December 5, 2018 2:12 PM EST

Jordan Leggett: Adds two more catches

Leggett caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 26-22 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Leggett is still yet to reach the 25-yard mark in a game and has just one touchdown. He'll continue to serve as New York's No. 2 tight end against the Bills in Week 15.
