The Pro Bowl fullback signed a two-year contract Monday after being released by the Ravens in June.

Leach paved the way for running back Ray Rice to gain 1,143 yards last season. Leach ran nine times for 32 yards during the regular season and scored a touchdown against Indianapolis in Baltimore's first postseason game.

But he declined to renegotiate his contract during the offseason and was released by Baltimore in June. At the time, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome left open the possibility that Leach could return, saying, ''There could be an opportunity for him to return to the Ravens once he explores the free-agent market.''

Coach John Harbaugh said Monday, ''We've been hopeful this would happen all along.''
