Ravens snag fullback Vonta Leach
The Baltimore Ravens sign All-Pro fullback, Terzell Vonta Leach. This is the best fullback in the league, and he deserves some credit for Arian Foster’s breakout season. This is a big loss for the Texans, and a big addition to the Baltimore Ravens. Vonta Leach can do it all: outstanding blocker, he can run with the ball and he can catch some passes.
This is very good news for Ray Rice (Fantasy Football Fans).
Todd Heap Will Always Be a Bird
After getting released by the Baltimore Ravens, Todd Heap becomes the newest addition to the Arizona Cardinals. He is a tough, well-rounded veteran that will provide leadership, as well as a target for the newly-acquired, quarterback, Kevin Kolb.
I’m sure Larry Fitzgerald is happy about getting more weapons…
Detroit adds Another Linebacker
Stephen Tulloch joins the Detroit Lions, another off-season addition to their defensive side of the ball. He previously played for the Tennessee Titans, and led the team in tackles the past couple season as their middle linebacker.
Between the 2 new LBs Detroit just signed, Tulloch and Justin Durant, the front-7 makes things a lot easier for the Louis Delmas-led secondary.
Fabian Washington gets to party like it’s Marti Gras. The former first round selection, is one of the fastest players in the league (that’s why the Raiders drafted him). After a decent season in Baltimore last year, in which he started half the season, he inks a deal with New Orleans. He will join a young core and compete to be the 2nd cornerback.
Jets Add A Few Free Agents
New York Jets resign Eric Smith to compete for the free safety position, and sign Donald Strickland, whom will battle for nickel and dime packages.
The big acquisition of the day so far, Plaxico Burress will be staying in the Big Apple. Rex Ryan gets the former Giant to suit up in green.
Burress was recently released from prison, and reinstated back into the NFL by Commissioner Roger Goodell. He gets an opportunity to rejoin society and his profession. I’m rooting for the guy, and I mean, who doesn’t like a success story?!
