    Adam Schefter is reporting that we released Matt Leinart....... Says it's not to make room for Peyton.

    Yessssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hopefully a Jacoby announcement is coming!!!!!!!!!11

    And I actually don't have anything against Leinart the QB in this system...But this saves money AND I'm just happy they are being pro-active...

    I think most here saw that coming, but damn, things are starting to rock-n-roll. More news @ 10:00.

    Gary gave Matt a great education here, but there's no place for him here anymore.

    Time to fly on your own, Matt -- best of luck.

    Anxiously waiting on the news of the Texans kicking Jacoby to the curb too. Another $4.5 million would be freed up. Come one Kubes. It was a failed experiment. Time to move on.

    Hahaha, I can't help but crack up at the different reactions with Leinart and Winston being released. From all accounts he was an upstanding guy in and out of the locker room here. I wish him the best!

    Haha of course not. Although I'm sure someone asked him he's always said that Texans would not get Manning.

    Needed to be done though as Yates has proven he can be a good backup.

    People are cheering that money is being saved and the team.is being pro-active....not that Leinart is losing his job. Maybe Jacoby is next.

    Not too surprising with the amount he will be owed and the emergence of Yates. Sucks he never got his chance here because of injury but hopefully he will get a chance to start somewhere.

    I always hate to say "Glad to hear that," but I am glad he's not a factor in our plans at QB this year.

    I don't think we'll clear enough room to get Mario back. I really don't. Some team is going to be stoopid goofy with what they'll offer Mario. I mean, he's going to get insane money from some team.

    I think this is to bring back Myers and maybe acquire a better WR to help out AJ since the multi-year project known as Jacoby Jones reached its full impotence in the divisional playoff game in Baltimore.

    If Jacoby is gone, then that clears money to sign Myers and a better WR for TJ Yates. I still don't think we have a chance in hell at Mario, and Manning is not targeted either. It has to be to retain the Center and grab a free agent WR so that Kubiak can draft OL in round 1 and get his next Duane Brown-type lineman. My theory, at least.

    Agreed. He just was piss poor against a speed or bull rush in pass protection. How many times have we watched that.

    He'll land on his feet. I wish him the best and thank him for his years of service.

    Yeah, I know but it still made me chuckle. We're definitely setting ourselves up to do something here. McNair and company finally look ready to make some serious noise somehow. Even if it's just keeping our premier free agents.

    4.5 million? Really? For some reason I'm remembering it like this... it wouldn't be very cost effective to cut Jacoby as he would carry a large cap hit. Might as well keep him.

    A mentality that I do not happen to agree with but it makes sense.

    Totally unlike the Winston stunner, this move was practically expected.
