FLOWERY BRANCH — Safety Mark LeGree, who was signed to the practice squad, is with his sixth NFL team.
LeGree, who’s from Columbus and played at Pacelli High, hopes this is his last stop.
“I don’t think every time is my last chance, but I do treat it as if it is,” LeGree said. “I just want to work harder and try my best to stand out so that I can be here. I don’t like jumping from team to team. I don’t like that lifestyle. I want to find a home.”
LeGree was drafted by the Seattle in the fifth round of the 2011 draft. He’s also had a cup of coffee with Arizona, New York Jets, San Francisco (twice) and Chicago.
“It was great because I wasn’t expecting this at all,” said LeGree, who played at Appalachian State. “I always wanted to be close to home. I played high school football in Georgia. For the Falcons to want me here was just great.”
LeGree knows how the practice squad works.
“I’ve already experienced it,” LeGree said. “It varies from week to week on the practice squad. My goal is to try to stay here as long as I can.”
