Coach Harbaugh on the release of Vonta Leach

The Ravens made the departure of Vonta Leach official Tuesday, releasing him and re-signing veteran tight end Billy Bajema. Used as a blocking tight end, Bajema played in eight games with the Ravens in 2012 without catching a pass, while making just one start.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome told the team’s website that he was leaving the door open for Leach to return if he did not find an attractive free agent deal. However, Leach is one of the NFL’s best blocking fullbacks, and he is likely to draw interest from several suitors.
