The suddenly depleted Ravens offense will gain back another piece from last year: fullback Vonta Leach.
The three-time All-Pro was released in mid-June after he and the team were at odds over a proposed pay cut, but both camps were able to agree upon a two-year deal on Monday.
Although his role diminished slightly with the insertion of Jim Caldwell as the offensive coordinator, there is no doubt that Leach is both a team leader and an asset to the run game.
Rookie fullback Kyle Juszczyk was slated to take over the duties in front of Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, but concerns over his effectiveness in lead blocking situations pushed the Ravens to bring back the seasoned veteran.
