The Miami Dolphins have been pursuing free agent fullback Vonta Leach for the past two weeks, trying to get the three time Pro Bowler to South Beach. They were the first, and only, team to host him on a free agent visit, and they have been in constant contact with him since he left Miami without a deal.

However, the Dolphins are not the only team interested. As we stated yesterday, the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, and Houston Texans are all in pursuit of Leach as well.

Yesterday, Leach discussed the situation while appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Leach was asked what happened with the Dolphins, and why he was not wearing aqua and orange today.

"Nothing happened. When I met with the Dolphins, we didn't really go over a timetable. We didn't go over a timetable. They weren't really is a rush to get anything done, and I'm not in a rush to get anything done. I want to weigh all my options, see what's the best fit for me."

When asked about the ideal situation of being back in Baltimore this year, Leach replied, "You know, me and Ozzie [Newsome, Ravens GM] talk once a week. He knows the process. Me and him are going to let the process play out. If I'm back with the Ravens, there's no hard feelings. They let me test the market, and see what my market value is."

Leach also discussed the interest from the Giants. "They called me the first day, and things are picking up a little bit more. So, just like I said, we'll see how this week goes, but I'm not in a hurry to do anything. I'm still on my same training regimen as if I was on the team, so we'll just see."

You can hear the entire interview below. However, Leach's interview was not the only talk about the fullback's future yesterday. Fox Sports and Baltimore Sun Ravens reporter Aaron Wilson spoke with Leach's agent, Ralph Vitolo:

ESPN's Adam Schefter also commented on the situation, still placing Miami as the clubhouse leader for Leach's service:
