Baltimore Ravens sign Vonta Leach to 2-year contract

Rob Carr

Baltimore has brought back Ray Rice's bodyguard for two more years.

The Baltimore Ravens have officially signed fullback Vonta Leach to a two-year contract just months after releasing him, according to the Baltimore Sun. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Leach was one of the many players allowed to walk out the door following their Super Bowl win in February, but he's now back after shopping his services around a bit, with teams such as the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants rumored to have had interest.

The 31-year-old is a three-time All-Pro, earning such honors in each of the past three seasons. Leach was originally a Green Bay Packer from 2004-06 before joining the New Orleans Saints for one day of the 2006 season. He was quickly released and signed by the Houston Texans, where he became known as one of the game's best fullbacks.

Leach came to Baltimore in 2011 and hasn't missed a beat, making the Pro Bowl in each season as a Raven.
