I wanted the Giants to sign Leach a few years ago when he was a free agent, and I'd love for them to add him now, as long as the pricetag isn't ridiculous. The Giants would benefit from a true fullback, as Madison Hedgecock's play has slipped over the years, partially due to injuries. Bear Pascoe was a solid replacement, but he is much more suited to be a backup tight end.
Youngmisuk agrees that Leach would be a very nice pickup, but points out that the team should have higher priorities.
While Leach would be a great addition, the Giants have more pressing needs such as re-signing as many of their own free agents as possible first. They did try to add Leach in 2007 when they signed him to a restricted free agent offer sheet worth $8 million, including $1.6 million in guarantees.Leach is an absolute beast, and a top three fullback at the very least. The addition of a dominant fullback would help mask some of the deficiencies with the offensive line.
Another name floating around that I would like to see the Giants bring in is undrafted free agent Henry Hynoski out of Pittsburgh. He wouldn't have the immediate impact of Leach, but if Leach's asking price is astronomical, Hynoski would be a perfect silver medal.
