It's interesting that former Ravens FB Vonta Leach is talking with his old team, the Texans. He might go to Miami, but Texans are interested

Two teams other than the Texans and Dolphins are talking to Vonta Leach. He'll pick a team early next week.

With fullback Henry Hynoski still recovering from knee surgery, and with concerns that he won't be ready for the start of the regular season, the Giants are pondering a last-ditch effort to sign free agent fullback Vonta Leach, the Daily News has learned.

I don't see Texans in a bidding war. He went for the money last time and I think he will again.

Every player is different. Shane Lechler would have come to Houston years back but didn't because of his HUGE contract by the Raiders.

Now that money is no longer a necessity he's come here for cheap.

It COULD happen with Leach. He loves it here and he thinks of Houston as his real home.

That & there probably isn't a big market for punters right now.

If New York is entering the reach for Leach, that could spark a bidding war.

If we really want Leach, we need to dump Clutts to dilute the market.

With no other fullbacks on the roster, tight end Bear Pascoe filled in at that position during mini-camp, but the Giants would prefer to have a full-time fullback fill that position. The 6-foot-, 260-pound Leach – whom the Giants pursued back in 2007 when they signed him to a restricted free agent offer sheet that the Houston Texans eventually matched -- would be a huge upgrade if the Giants can figure out how to fit him under the salary cap. That won’t be easy, though, because he was cut by the Ravens after they couldn’t reach an agreement on a restructured contract, and a source said he has no intentions of signing anywhere for one year and a minimum salary.

That puts the Giants in a bind because they have only $3.3 million of room under the salary cap according to NFLPA records and the Dolphins, the only team Leach has visited, has $17.6 million of room. The Houston Texans are also interested in Leach, according to a source, but they have even less cap room than the Giants ($2.8 million).

To lure Leach, the Giants would have to get creative to keep the first-year cap number low, and would likely need to offer a multi-year deal. Leach visited the Dolphins on June 12 and they still remain the favorites to sign him. A source said eight teams expressed some interest in signing Leach, but he has no immediate plans to make any more free-agent visits.

Still, I'm not liking the odds of him being either a Texan or a Giant in 2013. If I'm wrong, it will be far from the first (or last) time, but I'm thinking unless one of the two decide they want to free up some additional cap room for Vonta, he'll be a Dolphin by the end of the week. That just doesn't strike me as the Giants way of doing business, and while I love Vonta, I don't love him enough to want the Texans to push current cap dollars to future years in order to resign him.

Due to the Dolphins cap space, Leach is allowing a bidding war that the Texans don't need to engage in. He won't be coming to Houston.

IIRC, the Giants wanted him back in 06. I think they even signed him to an offer sheet before he re-signed with the Texans. It'd be nice if he shunned them again.

No worries - I'm just kind of hoping Leach makes his decision soon, so we can move on from the thought he might be coming back.

Some believe that the Ravens are waiting in the wings for if Leach finds that things out there in FA are not all that great.

Quote:
Hello again, Vonta?

The Ravens are still quietly monitoring the situation with former fullback Vonta Leach. The Miami Dolphins appear to be the frontrunner for Leach, with the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans also in contention.

But if the Dolphins were offering such an attractive package, Leach would have signed by now. The Ravens reportedly offered Leach a contact worth $2 million and loaded with incentives, but those close to Leach don't believe those incentives were realistic for him to reach.
Leach was expected to make $3 million this season before the Ravens recently cut him.
