Fullback Vonta Leach didn’t sign with the Ravens until camp was getting underway last summer and he hopes to do the same thing again this summer whether it is with the Ravens or someone else.
Leach has not generated much activity on the open market since the Ravens let him go early in free agency, but he still believes he’ll be on a roster when the 2014 season gets underway.
“It’s never easy going through free agency,” Leach said, via the Robesonian. “It’s just a waiting game. I probably won’t sign with a team until training camp.”
Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that a second straight summer return to the Ravens is unlikely as the team plans to give Kyle Juszczyk a bigger role in the offense this time around and it’s not clear where other interest in Leach’s services could be coming from at this point in the offseason. Perhaps things will heat up in the next few weeks, but there’s also a chance that Leach will need to sit tight and wait for an injury to open up a roster spot for him to fill in his 11th NFL season.
