Vonta Leach Says Talks With Giants “Picking Up”: FB Vonta Leach, who was waived by the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month, was asked about the Giants’ interest in his services yesterday on SiriusXM Radio.
“The Giants called us on the first day,” said Leach. “Then, from what I heard, things (are) picking up a little bit more.”
However, The Star-Ledger is reporting that there has been no formal communication between the Giants and Leach’s agent since June 11.
Leach has reportedly received interest from a number of teams including the Dolphins and Texans, and the Dolphins are still considered the favorites to sign Leach. “I’m keeping all my options open right now,” said Leach. “Really not in a rush to sign anything right now. Just as long as I’m in there (with a team at training camp), learning the playbook, I’ll be all right.”
