John McLain of the Houston Chronicle reports via twitter that the Texans will make free agent fullback Vonta Leach an offer after the lockout. The Texans must at least attempt to bring back Leach, who is one of the more popular players in the Texans’ locker room.
But we’ll know how serious the Texans are by the size of their offer. The 2010 first-team All-Pro lead blocker wants a big raise and isn’t convinced the Texans will give it to him. According to McClain, it’s going to be a very unpopular move with his teammates if they allow him to leave.
