The Baltimore Ravens have released veteran Vonta Leach and now a USA TODAY article is linking the FB to the Kansas City Chiefs.
From USA TODAY:
"Vonta Leach was cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday, which was unfortunate timing for the Pro Bowl fullback because it’s the end of the spring and almost time for coaches to go on vacation.Sensing the clock is ticking, Leach has already set up his first visit with another team.Leach will travel to Miami to meet with the Dolphins, a person informed of the meeting told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t confirmed the meeting.The person also said the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs might soon be in play for Leach, whom the Ravens would welcome back at the right price."
The Ravens have been doing a lot of shaking up to their roster since winning the Super Bowl last year. Championship teams led by veterans often get very expensive, something that Chiefs fans are hooping to find out in the next few seasons.
So, should the Chiefs consider bringing in Leach?
KC already traded CB Javier Arenas for Arizona Cardinals FB Anthony Sherman. The Chiefs also drafted Kansas State FB Braden Wilson in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
In some ways, Leach would be a solid addition to the Chiefs’ roster. He would bring leadership and championship experience. He would also be an upgrade over both FBs on the roster but probably not for long since he is on the wrong side of 30.
I guess it depends on how much the Chiefs plan to use the FB in 2013. Leach would probably help in the short term but he could also slow the development of Sherman/Wilson in the long term.
What do you think, Addicts? Leach or no Leach?
