Agent: Vonta Leach considering five teams including the Texans

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The agent for free agent fullback Vonta Leach told FOX 26 Sports his client is considering five teams and a decision is not imminent.

"Nobody has been excluded," said Ralph Vitolo. "You have to put Miami, Houston and the Giants in the first three.

"Kansas City is also involved and Baltimore is included in this also."

The Ravens released Leach earlier this month after they were unable to work out a restructured contract or trade him.

The team said then it would consider revisiting the issue at a later date.

"It's not out of the realm of possibility that he return to Baltimore," Vitolo said.

Leach, named Associated Press First-Team All-Pro fullback the past three seasons, initially said returning to the Texans where he played from 2006-2010 was his first choice.

"It's difficult to get anything done right now because many club officials are gone and some of them are out of the country," Vitolo said.

"To me Miami is the best fit because of their needs and their availability of (salary) cap room. I think the best overall fit is Miami, but who knows.

"He still has an interest in Houston and the Giants, the Chiefs and the Ravens. That's all predicated on can the deals be done based on the finances they have."

Vitolo said he and Leach will take their time with this decision and are not trying to reach a deal by a specific date.

"We're not playing football so the sense of urgency is not there for us to do it or the teams," Vitolo said.

Vitolo pointed out Leach will be extremely busy through the weekend with his foundation and his camp for kids he is running in North Carolina.
