Dolphins face competition for Vonta Leach
By James Walker | ESPN.com

It’s no surprise the free-spending Miami Dolphins have been aggressive in their pursuit of Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach after his release from the Baltimore Ravens. The Dolphins were among the first teams to call, and they set up a visit immediately with Leach on Wednesday.

But the Dolphins aren’t the only team interested in Leach’s services. In the past 48 hours, the Houston Texans, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs reportedly have reached out to Leach's representatives. This means Miami could end up in a bidding war for Leach’s services.

Interest from multiple teams obviously favors Leach. It is doubtful Miami can get Leach on a one-year, team-friendly contract. Leach is a good player who can probably call his shot and get a sizable, multiyear offer from Miami or another team in the upcoming days or weeks. Miami must decide how much its willing to spend to land arguably the best fullback in the NFL. It is evident Miami's coaching staff hasn't been too impressed this spring with current fullbacks Jorvorskie Lane and Charles Clay.

The Dolphins have already spent more than $200 million in free-agent contracts this offseason, which includes $117 million in guaranteed money. Are they willing to outbid several other teams to land Leach?

I hope we get him... would be nice to have a solid lead blocker for our youngster.

With that in mind... wouldn't mind grabbing McGahee as insurance either.

I don't see Miami looking at Willis, but he would be nice to have. A proven commodity. Certainly hope Miami can get Vontae in the fold.

I don't see the McGahee signing happening. We've already got Miller, Thomas, and Gillislee in the backfield. Miller is the starter, and we drafted Gillislee for a reason. Thomas might be on the hot-seat for moving down the depth chart, but I don't think his roster spot is in all that much danger.

I'd rather pass on McGahee. He's not what he used to be.

Leach is a beast that can blow open holes. Hopefully, Miami can land him.

Last I read he is "weighing" his options. I'm surprised he doesn't want to live in MIA. No state taxes and it's Miami!!!
