Post Dolphins to host FB Vontae Leach
From Rotoworld.com. This would be a nice pick up as Leach is an absolute sledgehammer as a lead blocker.



The Dolphins will host free agent FB Vonta Leach on Wednesday.
Leach has a coaching staff connection in Miami; offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was on the Packers and Texans' staffs when Leach played there. The Fins' current fullback is Jorvorskie Lane, but Leach would be an enormous upgrade as a lead blocker. His addition would be good news for Lamar Miller.

Schefter tweeted that Miami has 17 million in cap space. Accounting for the remaining draft picks, plus Leach, and we're probably talking about still being able to rollover 10-12 million into next year. Awesome.

Lane showed some promise last year but he's nowhere near Leach's level.

Dang, he sure would be an upgrade over Lane. From Pro Football Focus stats:

He turns 32 in November...........the Phins may offer a 1 or 2 year deal. With the uncertainty in the O-line.........he definitely could be a difference maker.

Would love to add him to the roster.... Leach is a beast and is well worth the 2-3 milliion a year for a few years.

This would be significant. Philbin did not say much about it when interviewed on Sirius today.
