Ravens re-sign Vonta Leach

The Ravens never closed the door on bringing All-Pro fullback Vonta Leach back for a third season with the team. And Leach clearly didn't move on from them.

Baltimore re-signed Leach on Monday afternoon, coach John Harbaugh told reporters.

Leach's return will certainly make star tailback Ray Rice happy after two years of running behind perhaps the most effective lead blocker in the NFL.

The Ravens had released Leach in June for cap reasons. But after a brief flirtation with signing elsewhere, Leach is returning to where he's most comfortable in a move that will aid Baltimore's running game.
