I've posted many times this season with confusion about why the Ravens aren't using the best blocking fullback left in the NFL, while meanwhile struggling to find their run game. I still don't understand that, but I'm now moving on to another thought. Can anybody here talk about what sort of cap affect it will have when Leach is cut this offseason? And, yes, I did say "when" as opposed to "if," because I can't imagine why he wouldn't be. He played just three snaps in the entire Detroit game, while we ran the ball 19 times. Unless there's an injury that hasn't been talked about, it's clear that he just doesn't fit into our plans going forward. He's too good to be wasted on this roster, and I assume his cap hit would make a difference if he's not at all a part of our offensive plan.
I really hope I'm wrong. I hope he's used more in traditional running formations this year, I hope he's back next year, and I hope he's used properly that entire season, as well. I just have absolutely no delusions that that's going to happen anymore.
