The Dolphins are making a strong push to sign former Texans and Ravens FB Vonta Leach after his release from Baltimore.

Apparently the Giants and Texans also want him but he will probably land in Miami.

Not sure how the Dolphins can fit all those free-agents under the cap but they have a strong off-season and Leach will definitely improve their run game.

In unrelated News, Billy Spikes has officially set the world bench mark for most avatar and sig changes in a month without changing the focal point of either.

I think this thread is a good idea and I hope the mods let it stay open. A lot of the general NFL chatter ends up in the irrelevant thread and IMO it's better served here. Especially as we move into camp. The NFL news forum isn't really the best place to discuss minor or less-serious goings ons with other teams.

He'd be a nice fit in Houston. The Giants seem to be able to find/develop stopgap fullbacks fairly easily.

Not sure why Miami wants him. I guess they plan on making Clay a full time TE?

I thought Hynoski was a very good FB for the Giants, and the Giants fans on here seem to rave about him.

Not really sure the upgrade is totally necessary.

Well he spent 3 years in Green Bay, during two of those seasons Mike Sherman the Dolphins offensive coordinator was the head coach. So he knows Leach well.

As far as Clay, they might make him a full-time TE if they're ready to give up on 2012 3rd round pick Michael Egnew already since he struggles so much, Clay can share time with Dustin Keller who signed a 1-year deal with them.

Because Jeff Ireland is desperate to sign good players, even if he has to destroy the Dolphins' future cap room to do so. Either he or somebody else is going to have a lot of fun with that mess in a few years, but right now the only priority seems to be brining in talent, regardless of the fit.

He's dealing with injuries.
