- ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Leach receives a two-year contract from the Ravens.
- The Ravens have confirmed that Leach will sign a contract today.
- Baltimore previously offered Leach a contract that would have allowed him to earn back the $1 million pay cut they asked him to take via incentives.
We had Leach listed as the No. 6 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
Jeff Zrebiec reports that Leach has been at the Ravens’ facility on Monday for a physical and a workout.
- Zrebiec isn’t sure if a deal is done.
- Aaron Wilson reports that the Ravens “could be getting close” to re-signing Leach.
- Wilson adds that nothing is done yet, so there’s still more work to do, but it appears as though there is a good chance that an agreement could be finalized in the near future.
The Baltimore Sun suggested that fourth-round FB Kyle Juszczyk would most likely be moved to tight end if the Ravens end up re-signing Leach.
The Ravens appear to be the favorite to land Leach after talks with the Dolphins and Giants have subsided in recent weeks.
Miami reportedly never extended Leach a contract offer and the Giants are believed to have offered him a veteran minimum salary.
The two time Pro-bowler was released after the Ravens a few months ago. They drafted a replacement in fourth-round pick Kyle Juszczyk, but it appears as though they are willing to retain Leach at the right price.
Leach was expected to sign with a team on Friday, but now appears that a deal could be coming next week.
