Leonard's agent says the veteran fullback has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Leonard played under Schiano during a successful college career at Rutgers.

Leonard, 29, spent the past four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals in a part-time role. Used primarily as a third-down back, Leonard had 33 carries for 106 yards and 11 catches for 67 yards.

Leonard won't be an impact player on the Buccaneers, but his abilities as a blocker and receiver out of the backfield gives him value. Ties to the coach should help him stick around.
