Vonta Leach is done in Baltimore.
The Ravens fullback tweeted on Monday that he’s done what he set out to do with the team and that it’s time to move on.
Leach and the Ravens were trying to negotiate a reduced salary but were reportedly unable to agree a compromise.
“Thank @Ravens organization for a great two years,” Leach tweeted. “I came here and did what we set out to do and that’s win the Super Bowl. My time here is up but what we accomplished, we will be forever linked. Thank the fans for accepting me and my family to Bmore. #newchapter#samegoal.”
The 31-year-old fullback played in two Pro Bowls during his time with the Ravens.
He will now leave the job to rookie Kyle Juszczyk.
“We’re both still here, so we’ll see how it goes,” Leach said of him and Juszczyk last week at Organized Team Activities (OTAs). “Hopefully, it can work out for both of us. If it doesn’t, I feel like I still can play in this league and I’ll have a job somewhere.”
