According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are expected to release or trade FB Vonta Leach and the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a restructured contract.
The Ravens’ front office reportedly worked aggressively to get a deal worked out with Leach, but they’ve been unable to make progress in recent weeks.
Leach, 31, has a $3 million base salary for the upcoming season and currently counts $4.33 million against the team’s salary cap. Clearly, the Ravens would like to reduce that figure given that Leach doesn’t play a high-value position and is already in his thirties. Baltimore added Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk during the recent draft, so they already have a contingency plan in place if Leach refuses to accept a pay cut.
We’ll have more as the news becomes available.
