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.
