Vonta Leach signs deal; Rice tweets happily

FB Vonta Leach, regarded by many as the best lead blocker in the game, has signed a three-year deal worth $11 million with the Ravens, eschewing the Texans in the process, and making Baltimore RB Ray Rice a happy man.

That’s according to the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain, who reports that the Texans wanted to keep Leach but weren’t willing to put out as much money as the Ravens.

Combined with the re-signing of OL Marshal Yanda, the addition of Leach should help a Ravens running game that slipped to 14th last season (it was No. 5 in 2009 and No. 4 in 2008).

Almost immediately after the news, Rice sent a tweet to Leach that read, “Let the fun begin.”

The rest of the AFC North might beg to differ.

Nice move. This also looks good for fantasy. I've had Rice since he  haascome into the league and he constantly would get voltured by Mcgahee and Leron. I was thinking on dropping him. Not anymore!

LeRon McClain went to Denver with nothing more than hopes of being a starter. He came this year 30 lbs under weight. It clearly showed that he had no desire to block and sealed his demise.

if Vonta Leach signs a deal with the Ravens......why is it you guess that he will end up in Houston paving the way for Foster?  I think your brain just farted.

My bad. Meant to say that maybe Le'Ron McClain ends up with the Texans to block for Foster since obviously the Ravens don't need him anymore.

This doesn't help Arian Foster's fantasy value any either.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves
her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there
 arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail
prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED
 TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is
 the website we use to get it all from, PriceCent.com

Great signing by the Ravens. Ray Rice is rightfully a very happy man. Arian Foster is probably not nearly as happy, but my guess is he may very well end up in Houston paving the way for Foster.
