Training camp for the Miami Dolphins is scheduled to open in just under two weeks as players report on June 20. Free agent fullback Vonta Leach seems to be leaning toward the Dolphins in hopes of joining the team for the upcoming season.
However, Leach still needs one little thing; a contract.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have yet to formally offer Leach a contract despite mutual interest from both sides. The two sides have only spoke in general terms about a contract up to this point.
While Leach’s agent, Ralph Vitolo, hasn’t ruled out other teams seeking to acquire Leach, the focus clearly seems to be with the Dolphins. It’s where Vitolo believes Leach will ultimately end up but it can’t happen if the Dolphins decide not to offer him a deal.
The Houston Texans, New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens continue to show interest in Leach as well. The Ravens have an offer on the table to Leach but he’s seeking a better deal. Per Salguero, Leach is intrigued by the Dolphins but the “money has to be right.”
With the season fast approaching, the timetable for both sides to make a decision could be accelerated soon.
