New York Giants Have Made Standing Offer to Fullback Vonta Leach

Since the moment he was released by the Baltimore Ravens in mid-June, the New York Giants have, in one way or another, been connected to fullback Vonta Leach. In fact, it's a relatively normal song and dance between the two dating all the way back to 2006 season when the Giants had signed him to a four-year offer sheet, which was later matched by the Houston Texas.

Alas, it hasn't been meant to be — at least not yet. And although the Giants have precious little cap space, they remain in the hunt for the fullback, who no longer appears destined for Miami.

Despite the aforementioned lack of cap room, the New York Post is reporting that the Giants have gone beyond mere discussions with the fullback and have made him a standing offer. Unfortunately for Big Blue, it doesn't come close to the $2 million (plus $1 million in incentives) offer also on the table from the Ravens.

“Still status quo with Giants," a source told The Post. “Wish they had more cap room."

The Giants' offer to Leach is reportedly for the veteran minimum, making them a long-shot at best. However, their stance hasn't changed much in over a month and Leach's agent continues to return to them, so it's not completely outside the realm of possibility that the All Pro ends up with Big Blue.

The Houston Texans also remain in the mix.
