                          === Ravens cut FB Leach ===
 
 Owings  Mills,  MD  (Sports  Network)  -  The  reigning  Super  Bowl  champion
 Baltimore Ravens cut fullback Vonta Leach on Tuesday.
 
 The  Ravens were unable  to work out a restructured deal for Leach, who became
 the  ninth  departed player  that started  in Super  Bowl XLVII (Leach, Anquan
 Boldin, Matt Birk, Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, Ma'ake Kemoeatu, Cary Williams,
 Ed  Reed  and Bernard Pollard). No  reigning world champion has lost more than
 five starters the following season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
 
 "Thanks ravens organization for a great two years," Leach wrote on his Twitter
 account  on Monday. "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."
 
 Leach  has caught  112 passes for 749  yards and four touchdowns in 130 career
 games  with the Ravens, Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers.
 
 "There  could be  an opportunity  for  him to  return  to the  Ravens once  he
 explores the free agent market," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said.
 
 The  Ravens drafted  fullback Kyle Juszczyk in the fourth round of this year's
 draft. He will be the team's new starting fullback.
 
 Baltimore re-signed tight end Billy Bajema.
