The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed free-agent FB Vonta Leach to a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: After all the speculation that he was headed to the Dolphins or Texans, Leach isn't going anywhere, returning to the team he's spent the past 2 seasons with. His fantasy value is another matter, though, as he has only 279 yards and 1 TD over those 2 campaigns.

Up to five teams are still in the running for free agent FB Vonta Leach, including the Houston Texans, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens. 'Nobody has been excluded,' agent Ralph Vitolo said. 'You have to put Miami, Houston and the Giants in the first three. 'Kansas City is also involved and Baltimore is included in this also.'
Huddle Up: Who said the FB is dead in the NFL? Leach has helped pave the way for 2 of the league's best backs in recent seasons, including Arian Foster's breakout 2010 with the Texans and the Ravens' Ray Rice.

The New York Giants are considering increasing their offer to free-agent FB Vonta Leach (Ravens) because they are concerned about FB Henry Hynoski's knee injury. The team was hoping to sign Leach to a one-year deal worth the minimum salary.
Huddle Up: The Giants could use Leach as Hynoski is a candidate to begin the season on the PUP list, but the Dolphins remain the favorite to land the former Raven/Texan.

Free-agent RB Vonta Leach (Ravens) said he'll decide on a new team within two weeks, but he prefers to sign with the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Leach had a productive 4-plus-year run with the Texans before signing with the Ravens in 2011, but Houston reportedly likes what it has in new FB signee Greg Jones so we'll have to see if there's room for Leach on the roster.

The Baltimore Ravens announced they waived FB Vonta Leach. FB Kyle Juszczyk is now the starter.
Huddle Up: The youth movement continues in Baltimore as Leach's 2-year run with the team has ended in favor of the 4th-round pick from Harvard.
