According to the Miami Herald, free agent fullback Vonta Leach plans on deciding on which team he’s going to sign with within the next two weeks. He’s waiting to see if any better offers come his way.
For those who have asked, Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach still had not decided as of Monday evening whether to accept the Dolphins’ offer. Though he likes Miami, he has been waiting for a couple weeks to see if better offers surface.
The Dolphins remain the front-runner unless another team surprisingly wows him financially in the next two weeks.
I think Leach is wasting his time. I’m not sure any team is going to raise their current offer for him, since he is a fullback. Teams don’t value them like other positions.
We do know that one of the offers Leach has received is from the Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens waited over a decade between their first and second Super Bowl victories but in 2013 they may not have to wait long for their third Lombardi trophy. The last time a team repeated as champs, it was the New England Patriots and no team since then has been able to pull off the repeat. Now while that does speak volumes about how tough it is to make the Super Bowl...
While we continue to wait for free agent fullback Vonta Leach to decide on which team he’s going to sign with, the Dolphins remain the favorite even though they haven’t made him a solid contract offer yet.
Vonta Leach update: Dolphins haven't yet made a solid contract offer. Team and agent discussed general parameters weeks ago but that's all.

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...
On October 24, 2009, the University of Tennessee Volunteers made the four and a half hour trek town to Tuscaloosa. The two teams always meet on the third Saturday in October for their SEC showdown and the competition is typically one for the books.

David Tyree’s unforgettable catch in Super Bowl XLII may have not only won his team a title, but it also earned the New York Giants franchise a spot in my list of top ten greatest franchises since the millennium.
In this two-part series of the Top 10 Greatest North American Sports Franchises Since The Millennium, I’ll explain to you which organizations of all four major North...
Baltimore’s victory in Super Bowl XLVII was bittersweet. The Ravens had a reason to celebrate but it must also be put into perspective. Ray Lewis will never play for the Baltimore Ravens again, neither will Ed Reed. They weren’t just great players, they were tempo setters, the generals on the field and they brought intangibles to the team that personified the Ravens playing...
The Ravens is a respectable organization with strong leadership, which starts with the GM and the head coach. Since Harbaugh’s arrival he has changed the culture of Baltimore most beloved team with discipline, success and principles. In1983, John Elway said he would rather be a garbage man than play for Baltimore. Yes, it was when they were the Colts, but it was still...

Similar to the quarterbacks, these special teams players have clearly defined roles. Justin Tucker, Sam Koch and Morgan Cox are all excellent in what they do, and they get along really well. Last season, was yet another successful year for Koch, as he averaged the seventh-best net yards per punt mark in the league. His most important play of the year was when he purposely took...
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens aren't planning to dramatically alter how they divide up the playing time between Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce.Fantasy Spin:Pierce rushed for 532 yards on 108 carries last season, an average of 6.75 carries per game. He's expected to get more playing time this season, but not enough to alter Rice's fantasy value much in 2013.
Last year, We saw the Baltimore Ravens surprise most of us "Sports Reporters" and win the big one in Ray Lewis' final year. We saw the Robert Griffin lll, Russell Wilson, and Andrew Luck all lead their respective teams to the playoffs as rookies. We saw Peyton Manning return to "Peyton Manning" form but still was not better then the monster Adrian Peterson...
Ray Lewis was not able to finish his climb to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, but he was still diplomatic, presenting the Tanzanian president with a Ravens hat.
Something I had rarely thought about as a factor in overall strength training and conditioning for an NFL player is neck strength.
Then Sarah Ellison of Ravens.com wrote a piece over the weekend on the Ravens' team strength and conditioning coach Bob Rogucki.
Scientific research suggests that a muscular neck can reduce the impact generated when a player is hit in...
