As we have been predicting for the last month, free agent FB Vonta Leach is re-signing with the Baltimore Ravens. Sorry, Giant fans but his price was always too high. No word on the details of the deal yet, however.

The Giants came to terms with both of their remaining unsigned rookies today when both Justin Pugh and Ryan Nassib were formally brought into the fold.

Pugh's cap hit is around $1.5 million and according to Pat Traina, should reduce the Giants' available cap space to around $2 mil.

Free agent FB Vonta Leach is still on the market. The Miami Dolphins, who have been the front-runner to secure Leach's services, have decided to wait until camp before making a decision whether to bring the 32 year old into the fold.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salgeuro posted the below on his Twitter feed yesterday:

Source tells me #Dolphins standing pat, going to camp without signing FB Vonta Leach. No offer. Team will weigh options on roster...Dolphins will see how talent on roster performs first. If problematic, club will circle back around to Leach, if he's still available...

The Miami Herald's Dolphins' beat writer Armondo Salguero is reporting there is nothing new happening with free agent FB Vonta Leach...

From Rotoworld: The sides apparently haven't talked in multiple weeks despite the seemingly near constant updates on the situation. Leach reportedly wants a "2-3 year deal," which he won't get. Per Salguero, talks are expected to "pick up" once GM Jeff Ireland returns from vacation. This is one stare down the Dolphins should actually win, as if Leach had a better offer, he would have already taken it

Even though reports are swirling that free agent fullback Vonta Leach may end up in Miami, the Giants are still in play to land him, according to Connor Orr of The Star Ledger.

"The Giants are still in the running, according to a person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity to speak freely on the situation," Orr said.

Leach, a Pro Bowler, could help replace Henry Hynoski, who sustained a knee fracture and strained his MCL on the second play of ?OTAs.

The Giants are hoping there is a way they can land free agent FB Vonta Leach, but as time moves on here, it looks like the Miami Dolphins have the inside track on signing him. The Dolphins have a ton of cap room to play with (approx $17 million) and can easily match or top any offer by the Giants and the other teams interested.

Plus, Leach is not as hungry for a ring, having just won one in Baltimore, and who wouldn't want to get paid to live in Miami?

Per PFT:

Leach's agent Ralph Vitolo believes he knows what team will be waiting to hand him a jersey with his name on the back. The Texans, Giants and Ravens have all been in the mix for Leach?s services, but Vitolo thinks Leach will be enjoying life in Miami during the 2013 season.

The Giants are still reportedly interested in free agent FB Vonta Leach. who is apparently in no rush to sign his name to a contract. Here is the latest from around the net regarding Leach:

From Rotoworld: Free agent FB Vonta Leach told Sirius XM Radio on Monday that he's in no rush to sign with a team.

A Friday report from ESPN claimed Leach would sign "early (this) week," but that may not happen. "We?re keeping all our options open," said Leach, 31. "There?s really not a rush for anything right now because you can?t do nothing on the football field. As long as we?re in somebody?s camp, I?ll be all right." Leach has drawn interest from the Texans, Dolphins, Giants, and Ravens.

Another nice day in store for the denizens of the NY Metro Area today. Go out and enjoy it. The NFL is going underground for awhile. All minicamps have concluded and players are not due back here until July 26 for training camp.

There is news, however. The Giants are always looking to tweak their roster. Reports of them having interest in two free agents - LB Desmond Bishop and FB Vonta Leach - are dominating the blogs and rumor mills.

According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York, all pro fullback Vonta Leach has the Giants on his wishlist, along with the Seahawks and Chargers. He played with the Houston Texans last season but is likely looking to be paid like the best fullback in the game.

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.
