In the end, the Ravens won.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Leach has agreed to terms on a three-year, $11 million contract with Baltimore. The deal includes, per Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston, $6 million guaranteed.
McClain reports that, with Leach gone, the Texans will give tight end James Casey a crack at handling the lead-blocking duties for 2010 NFL rushing champ Arian Foster. The Texans also will bring in a veteran free agent.
UPDATE: Leach’s agent, Ralph Vitolo, says that Leach is now the highest paid fullback in the league, according to Berman. That’s accurate, but Leach’s total contract comes in at No. 2 on the all-time list. Last year, Leonard Weaver signed a three-year, $11 million deal with $6.5 million guaranteed. Weaver has since been cut.
