Report: Vonta Leach looking for multi-year deal


It’s been a few days since we’ve checked in on free agent fullback Vonta Leach, so it’s a good time to check in on one of the top names left on the free agent market.

There’s not much new to report, however. The Dolphins are still seen as the frontrunner to land Leach, but Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that there haven’t been any talks between Leach and the Dolphins this week.

Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland has been on vacation and talks are expected to resume once he’s back in the office next week. Salguero also reports that Leach is looking for a two or three-year deal from the team, because he wants to be part of the team’s future “which he sees as bright.”

Presumably, the Dolphins are looking to sign Leach to a one-year deal and, since Leach remains unsigned, we can also surmise that none of the other teams who have been linked to him have decided to offer multiple years. Leach doesn’t have much to lose by waiting to see if anyone does decide to go the extra mile in their offer since he can’t work with his new team until camp, so it may just be a waiting game to see if anyone blinks before Leach winds up taking a one-year deal.

  1. KC Chiefs need him. Leach & Jamal Charles with the new re-built O-Line would be devastating.

    Our receiving corps sux – running the ball is our only chance to get to .500

  2. Probably cut the Giants off the list now that they are trying to find money for Cruz.

  3. With a young QB, no Jake Long, and so many young running backs, the Dolphins would be wise to sign Leach, as long as the price is right.

  4. If Armando says the Dolphins haven’t talked to Leach lately, that means they are talking to him right now.

  5. I really wish the Bucs would take a look….while I like Lorig he is no Leach. Put Leach in front of Martin with that O Line in front of both… would dynamic.

  6. The moment that Victor Cruz signed his new contract — his Cap Number actually went down this year. That contract is very favorable to the Giants, Victor’s salary in the last 2 years of the deal is essentially at 2013 prices. For a WR of his caliber, that is a steal of a deal.

    Leach — take a look at what the Giants are offering you if you want to end your career with a ring.

  7. Apparently Miami has become a preferred destination for free agents once again. Good indication things are moving in the right direction for them as players and agents know what’s going on with teams.

  8. Players chasing money. Miami has the most to spend so I’ll go there and tell them how they are the next big thing.

  9. if/when they sign Leach, this will be, by far, the most aggressive of any Dolphin off season I’ve been witness to since 1982. GO FINS!

    Most of the free agent signings by Miami have been for 1-2 year contracts at below market cost, i.e. Grimes, Keller, and Glabo. So the fact of the matter is these players are not signing above market contracts. Leach would be in that same catagory of player, which as the article indicates, may be a reason it hasn’t been done yet. The exception being for top players in their prime years such as Wallace and Ellerbe.
