Should The Chargers Go After FB Vonta Leach?

Jan 6, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Baltimore Ravens fullback Vonta Leach (44) spikes the ball after scoring a touchdown during the second quarter of the AFC Wild Card playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts at M

Vonta Leach was released by the Baltimore Ravens and I am sure that it perked the ears up from a few of you. It definitely perked my ears up. We have LeRon McClain on the roster already, but that shouldn’t matter when the best fullback in the game is available for pickup.

He is the next best thing to Lorenzo Neal. How do we pick him up? You have to let go of McClain first and use some of that money to sign him. Might mean some bad news for Jeromey Clary or Eddie Royal also.

Don’t think of HOW, just think of HOW much of an impact he can make on the roster and how much he would help Philip Rivers and Ryan Mathews. If you wanted a bulldozer in front of Ryan clearing holes, then he could be that guy. As well as DJ Fluker, Max Starks, and Clary (if they don’t cut him).

It feels like forever since we had a good running game. The last time we had one, we had LoNeal paving the way. Maybe we can get Vonta to pave the way for Ryan and the running game.

Do I think it will happen? NOPE, but I can dream can’t I? We still need to find help in the secondary. I do think that there is a little bit of a possibility though. When Leach became a free agent his first time, one of the teams he was interested in signing with was San Diego. Maybe he still would wants to come out West.

      Dude, build it and we will come for sure!! Killer concept, need to get the city off of their fat ass wallets. We would have the Super Bowl every 3 years if we had the facility, just think of the money the city would generate. Simply insane that this is not on any city agenda. At least not one that gets any momentum. Looks good, and I will dream with you. Bolt Up!!

      Damn, that thing looks amazing! Too bad the city and most of its citizens are too dumb to realize that it IS actually a business opportunity for the city. They want the Spanos’ to pay for everything, yet want to reap the rewards of the huge cash that the Super Bowl brings. It’s a two-way street, folks. You want a return, you have to put a little skin in the game!

      One more time – that is a KILLER concept. First time I’ve seen it. Not sure if it came out earlier and I missed it, but that thing HAS to happen. Best stadium in the league right there.

        People don’t understand how much revenue and money would come into the cities pocket for years to come . So disappointing. Last I heard chargers were talking to a no name source about naming rights , not sure if they are going to use this concept but its a damn good one . The ppl just need to get on board .

    Leach would be awesome

  • Cgoodness13

    If he comes in at a bit lower price than McClain then sure, but McClain is a pretty good fullback himself, depends on the price.

      pretty good. but we are talking about the best in the league with Leach

  • Cgoodness13

    Damn the ravens are screwed this upcoming season

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      right. how many players are they going to let go?

  • Alter Ego

    You don’t bring a truck to a drag race to race. We got a good mudder in McClain already – no need to buy a new truck.

      I like trucks though :)

  • tubbs45

    I like LeRon as much if not more already. I do realize he is $$$, but if we commit to using the FB we are good already. Bring in more Cb/db help… 33 can handle his biz and is already trusted…
