According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Miami Dolphins have decided not to put an offer on the table for free agent fullback Vonta Leach. They will go with what they have on the roster to open up training camp. However, the team could still return to Leach as an option if no player fills the position. Those players would be Jorvorskie Lane and Charles Clay who would be competing for starting job. Waiting could be a stretch as three other NFL teams are vying for his services (Giants, Ravens, and Texans). Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com writes: ‘Leach, who turns 32 during the season, also had a previous stint with the Texans so it would seem he has a good chance of winding up in familiar surroundings for the 2013 season if the Dolphins remain out of the picture.’
