    I think the increased cap (far more than anticipated) makes it more likely he'll return than it seemed at the end of the year. He needs to take a pay cut though. He proved this past season that he still can ball before yet another injury. Ability isn't his problem. It's a shame he hasn't been able to stay healthy, but when he has, he's played well.

    It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Why'd they get rid of him though, it's not like he's making crazy money and the guy's a tackling machine?

    edit: unless they're getting ready for a schematic change on defense themselves? Back to 3-4?

    He fits a 3-4 though too. And they have a lot of cap room.

    rebuilding team, player due big roster bonus, team trying to get younger...

    He should definitely be on our radar... he's a greater leader/character type

    I hope they look at him or Brandon Spikes. Both would be good additions.

    With the names the Ravens were willing to let go last offseason, nothing should be a surprise.

    But as they prepare to adjust the team via free agency, they’re letting go a pair of veterans.

    According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are releasing fullback Vonta Leach and linebacker Jameel McClain.

    Leach came back last year in one of the most drawn-out sagas ever for a veteran fullback, and helped the Ravens (so to speak) to the worst rushing season in franchise history. Cutting him clears $1.75 million off the books.

    The Ravens got McClain back on the field last year after his 2012 neck injury, and he started 10 games. But they can clear $3.2 million in cap space with the move and plug second-year linebacker Arthur Brown in to his spot.

    With the Ravens trying to retain left tackle Eugene Monroe, they’re going to need cap room, and getting rid of disposable veterans is a sure way to do it.
    We had this discussion last off season, but I wouldn't be against giving Leach a look.
