A Thought on Vonta Leach
Sam wrote Tuesday night about the Giants expressing interest in three-time Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach, who was released by the Baltimore Ravens. Most likely the Giants were just doing their due diligence with Henry Hynoski out. I said this on Twitter (@bigblueview) several times Tuesday night, but there is no way Leach comes to the Giants.
Leach refused to restructure his contract to stay with the Ravens. The Giants have only a little more than $3 million in cap space and still have to sign Victor Cruz. The Miami Dolphins, where Leach is visiting today, have $17 million in cap space. That's really all you need to know.
Of course there is also the Hynoski factor. If Hynoski is back by the beginning of the season, or close to that, what do you do with two fullbacks? One of them would have to go. Leach won't come to a team to be a temporary fill-in.
