Street Talk Leach on his way back to Baltimore?

Tick-tock-tick, doo, doo, doo-doo!

Time keeps on slippin’…

And the more it does, the more likely that No. 44, Vonta Leach will return for his third season with the Baltimore Ravens.

As of now Leach has had no offer extended to him by the Miami Dolphins, the team long rumored to be most interested in his services.

Yet given what appears to be a Dolphins’ offense that is moving more towards a spread attack when considering head coach Joe Philbin’s history in Green Bay as offensive coordinator, you have to wonder why GM Jeff Ireland would pony up more than the incentive laden $2M deal Ozzie Newsome reportedly extended to Leach.

Might the alleged interest from Miami simply be a smokescreen conjured up by the fullback’s agent Ralph Vitolo for others potentially interested in Leach?

One would think as training camp approaches, Leach’s value to possible suitors will diminish because there’s less time to learn a new offense and the associated terminology.

This is just a hunch but I’d say there’s slightly better than a 50-50 chance that Leach returns to Baltimore, with the New York Giants or Houston Texans being the most likely teams to prevent the happy reunion.

Who will Vonta Leach play with in 2013?
