Eric LeGrand is unequivocally one of the most inspirational athletes of all time, providing inspirational moments like this, when he signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs, as well as this, this, this, this, and a few dozen more.

But, recently, when there was discussion on Jadeveon Clowney’s legendary hit on Michigan’s Vincent Smith being classified as illegal with new NCAA rules, LeGrand speaking up was a bit surprising.

LeGrand has already said he doesn’t want kickoffs to change, despite being injured on a kickoff, so it’s pretty clear what his thoughts are on football. And in the coming years when people start seriously debating the morality and safety of football, LeGrand seems like a seriously credible debater for the pro-football crowd.
