Ravens Bring Back Vonta Leach

The bruising fullback is back has signed a two-year deal.

Vonta Leach is back.

The Ravens announced the veteran fullback signed a new contract on Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the deal is for two seasons.


This is good news for the offense, which may opt to become more ground based with Dennis Pitta out for the season. Leach is arguably the best fullback in the NFL, though the position is slowly being phased out by a lot of teams.

After Monday's practice, coach John Harbaugh mentioned the Ravens are still trying to find out what identity they will be at this time of the season.

With Leach back in the fold, the Ravens have the option to become a downhill, running team again, even with Joe Flacco growing into one of the NFL's better quarterbacks. If the receiver and tight end situation falters early on, Baltimore has a strong ground game to rely on with Leach, Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce in the backfield.
