Fullback Vonta Leach hasn’t suffered from a lack of interest since the Ravens released him, but no one has made him an offer so compelling that he’s decided to shut down talks and sign on the dotted line.

When he does get to that point, his agent Ralph Vitolo believes he knows what team will be waiting to hand him a jersey with his name on the back. The Texans, Giants and Ravens have all been in the mix for Leach’s services, but Vitolo thinks Leach will be enjoying life in Miami during the 2013 season.

“I think so. I hope so. It’s the right place to be. We’re trying to crunch the numbers,” Vitolo said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

In a likely attempt to crunch those numbers in a way that appeals to Leach, Vitolo said that his client may still take another visit to an interested team -- Jackson mentions the Giants -- although one would imagine that every team has given the agent a pretty clear idea of what they’re willing and/or able to spend to bring Leach to their roster. Based on Vitolo’s other comment, the Dolphins would seem to be in the lead in that department even if their offer isn’t quite where Leach would like it to be.
