Veteran FB Vonta Leach A Free Agent Target For The Dolphins?

According to James Walker of, “there are reasons to believe” that the Miami Dolphins could have interest signing in recently FB Vonta Leach for second straight offesason.

The Ravens released Leach earlier in the week in order to shed some salary that can be used to re-sign some of their notable free agents like TE Dennis Pitta and LT Eugene Monroe before the start of free agency.

This is the second straight year that Leach has been a cap casualty for the Ravens. Last year, Leach visited with Miami about possibly signing with them, but ultimately elected to return to Baltimore.

Miami never found an adequate fullback, so they could be in the market for a solid lead-blocker this offseason. Leach figures to be among the best fullbacks available along with John Kuhn who does have ties for current Dolphins HC Joe Philbin.

Walker mentions that Leach’s asking price could ultimately determine whether or not he’s a strong option for the Dolphins.

Leach, 32, appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens last season and caught 11 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. However, Pro Football Focus had him rated as the second worst qualifying fullback in the league.
