Ravens Signing FB Vonta Leach


Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters that FB Vonta Leach is “signing as we speak,” per Aaron Wilson.

  • 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.


Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens are still in negotiations with free agent FB Vonta Leach this weekend.

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.
