He was just released by the Ravens.
He is a very good blocker, and he also added 21 receptions. Will Johnson has more raw athleticism, but I think that Leach would be an instant upgrade. Any interest?
Nah, I like Johnson. I think we groom him and let Leach go somewhere else.
Make sure you clarify Will Johnson and not unnecessary "oxygen consumer" David Johnson.

crap... read this and thought Vontae Davis! old age... move along - nothing to see here.
Vonta Leach made the Pro Bowl the last 3 years as a fullback. Someone with cap room will likely pay the man more than we would be able to...he's certainly not playing for the minimum...if he was willing to do that, then he'd just have accepted the pay cut from the Ravens (he had a $4.33 cap number) and would still be there. Instead, Baltimore drafted the kid from Harvard to take his place (with Matt Birk now retired, they needed Harvard man on their roster).
The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"
The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"
This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

Didn't Leach want something like $3 million to $4 million dollars? For a guy who'd probably be out there just 10% of the time, no thanks. In today's NFL, fullbacks are in no position to make such contract demands.
Leach is reportedly visiting the Miami Dolphins today...
