They were talking about Leach's $4M cap hit today on the radio.
They also said he's good on special teams and is listed as the 3rd TE and 2d FB
and played H-Back very well. He's the best blocking TE we have.
I just don't see how we keep both guys. It makes no sense financially.

The guy can play FB, if you watched the senior bowl and scouts list him as a FB. He can also block his arse off and catch. This either does two things, makes Leach take a paycut (not making 4+ Million) not many teams even use a FB and average price is about 2M so he wont have many options or will get the same or less $$ with another team or they can just release him once they see the Harvard dude in minicamp and TC. You dont need to be a genius to play FB, plus he is from Harvard I bet he can figure it out.
A couple of notes from the Ravens Twitter page.
You have to love this guy's attitude.
Kyle Juszczyk: I don't hesitate to hit somebody in the mouth.
Kyle Juszczyk said he was hoping he would be a #Raven after officially visiting Baltimore.
In regards to Leach, Ozzie said that there could be room for both on the Roster. I take that as Leach is getting a Boldin offer of pay cut or be cut.
I really doubt they wait till training camp to move on this. If they did not think the kid could not fill the role I highly doubt they draft him in the 4th. I think optimally Leach takes a cut and they keep both for this season allowing Leach to mentor the kid. Fortunately this kid seems to have some versatility in how he can be used that will make keeping them both a option.
