Vonta Leach Rumors: FB says Giants 'called us on the first day'

Vonta Leach - Andy Lyons

Free-agent fullback Vonta Leach discussed interested teams, including the Giants, Monday on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Free-agent fullback Vonta Leach said Monday on Sirius XM NFL Radio (@SiriusXMNFL on Twitter) that the New York Giants contacted his agent almost immediately after Leach, an All-Pro the last three seasons, was released by the Baltimore Ravens.

"The Giants called us on the first day," Leach said on the Sirius XM Blitz with hosts Bruce Murray and Vic Carucci. "From what I've heard they are speaking up a little bit more. We'll see how this week goes. I'm not in a hurry to do anything."

That would appear to coincide with a report over the weekend that the Giants were preparing to make a "last-ditch effort" to acquire the 31-year-old Leach.

Giants' fullback Henry Hynoski suffered a knee injury during OTAs that required surgery. Hynoski has said that a Week 1 return is realistic, the team's apparent serious interest in Leach -- much more than a temporary fill-in at the position -- has to be read as an indication they believe Hynoski could be out longer than that.

Leach has drawn interest from several teams -- including the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans. He also said there are "no hard feelings' with the Ravens and that he would consider going back to Baltimore
