EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Fullback Vonta Leach says the New York Giants have expressed an interest in him.

During a radio interview on Monday with SiriusXM NFL Radio, Leach said the Giants called his agents the day he was released by the Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens.

The Giants' plans at fullback took a hit when Henry Hynoski suffered a knee injury this spring and needed surgery.

Leach, who failed to agree on a restructured contract with Baltimore, earned Pro Bowl honors the past two seasons with the Ravens. He had 21 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown . He also had 36 catches for 212 yards.

The 31-year-old has played with the Packers, Saints and Texans.

"Everything is picking up here a little more,'' Leach said. "We'll see how this week goes.''
