A three-time All-Pro honoree, Leach was released by Baltimore last month due to cap constraints. As a vital blocker for Ray Rice, he was a valuable part of Baltimore's Super Bowl team last season, but his $3 million cap figure was too much for the team to handle with other needs eating into its cap space.
Following an unsuccessful visit with the Dolphins, however, the reunion between Leach and Baltimore became a likely outcome again. Miami is content to enter training camp with a young backfield, using Charles Clay as its primary fullback in training camp, along with former second-round pick Lamar Miller.
The New York Giants also had significant interest in Leach, giving him a standing offer, but familiarity with Baltimore is likely shaping this decision. He made the Pro Bowl team in each of the last three years, and almost matched his career high in receiving yards last season.
