Vonta Leach signs offer sheet

New, comments

Houston Texans fullback Vonta Leach has signed an offer sheet to play for the Giants.

According to the NFL Network, it's a four-year offer worth $8 million. He's a restricted free agent, so now we will see if the Texans value him enough to match the offer.

This move seems a tad curious considering Leach has never carried the ball in his three-year career, and has caught only a handful of passes. Jim Finn has done a solid job at fullback for the Giants the past few seasons.

I don't know much about him, but Leach is a 250-pound former college linebacker with a reputation for being very physical.

It would seem the Giants would like to put a power fullback in front of the 265-pound Brandon Jacobs and the 220-pound Reuben Droughns.

I've reached out to our friends over at the Battle Red Blog that covers the Texans to see if I can get more info on Leach. I'll pass along anything I get.

Your thoughts?
