The true fullback is a dying breed in the NFL. It's something that is a little surprising when you consider the benefit they have to the running game as a lead blocker not to mention as a blocking back or short yardage threat in the passing game. But that is the way of the game these days.
That does not mean that there are not still quality fullbacks out there. Some teams still see the value of sending a lead blocker into a hole before the running back to clear out the refuse. For those teams a guy like free agent fullback Vonta Leach is a treat.
So than how come he hasn't been snatched up yet?
If you listen to the rumor mill the Miami Dolphins have shown the most interest, and supposedly Leach is interested in them as well. Yet the Dolphins have yet to put a formal contract on the table.
Now does that sound like something a team that is seriously interested in a player is going to do with training camp right around the corner? No, I think no...
