Vonta Leach the three-time Pro Bowl fullback released by the Baltimore Ravens last month is expected to make a decision on Friday and is leaning towards re-signing with the Ravens according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

That person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to speak for Leach or his agent.

The Giants had expressed interest in Leach a bruising blocker in the wake of a knee injury suffered by starting fullback Henry Hynoski last month in minicamp. But his price tag was too high for the salary cap-strapped Giants who offered only a veteran's minimum contract.

In addition to Baltimore the Dolphins and Texans are among the teams to have shown interest in Leach. He has played for Houston.

Leach 31 was scheduled to earn $3 million with the Ravens this season. He was released in May when the two sides couldn't agree on a more cap-friendly deal but the lines of communication remained open.
