New York Giants Have A Standing Offer To Vonta Leach


A market has definitely emerged for fullback Vonta Leach. The Miami Dolphins are interested in the fullback, the New York Giants and Ravens reportedly have standing offers to Leach, and the Texans are also interested.

Leach’s agent had previously stated that Miami is the right place for the fullback.

The New York Giants have limited cap room but have made an offer to Leach, and it’s a standing offer. They lack the cap room other teams bidding for Leach’s service have. The Giants need a fullback to fill in for Henry Hynoski while he recovers from a knee injury that required surgery.

That means that aside from it being a single year deal, he might not even be their first choice at fullback when Hynoski returns.

According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post:

The Giants have an offer on the table for the fullback, but it’s believed to be for one year and the veteran minimum.

“Still status quo with Giants,’’ a source with knowledge of Leach’s status told The Post yesterday. “Wish they had more cap room.’’

Leach spent the past two seasons with the Ravens, and the Super Bowl champs have a standing $2 million offer for him, with another $1 million in incentives. Leach had previously been with the Texans, who also have expressed interest.
