    I was just about to post this. I saw the breaking news on ESPN as well.
    They said he was "expected" to be released today from the Cardinals today. I'm sure someone will pick him up.

    You know, I find it weird that in the entire QB class of 2006, the only QBs left standing (as starters) are Cutler and VY, and neither are exactly studs at this point.

    Well, depending how well Whitehurst does in Seattle.

    Leinhart has the talent to be a star, but not the heart.

    He's always been in it for the chicks and money.

    Sports Illustrated's Peter King, with whom Mike Florio will presumably share "the big-boy table" at halftime of today's Notre Dame-Purdue game, interestingly floated on Twitter Saturday the possibility of waived quarterback Matt Leinart resurfacing in Houston.


    The presumption, to this point, has been that Leinart's obvious landing spot is Seattle. The Seahawks left the door open for that possibility by releasing J.P. Losman on Saturday. Pete Carroll's club has just two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster -- Matt Hasselbeck and Charlie Whitehurst.


    But the Texans also have just two QBs, having waived John David Booty. Their backup, Dan Orlosvky, is also coming off a forgettable effort in Houston's preseason finale.


    The starters in both locales, Matt Schaub and Hasselbeck, are not considered to be among the NFL's most durable quarterbacks.


    Nobody wanted to trade for him, but perhaps there will be a market for Leinart's services, after all.

    Might as well post it here, Miami released QB Pat White today as well. I always thought he could do well in the right situation. You guys think maybe the Texans might look at him? I think he could work out really well, that Slaton + White duo in CFB was pretty damn good.

    I've never been impressed with Lienart.

    When I saw David Anderson playing with the ones, I figured he was going to be benched.

    Can't remember his name, but that third string guy looked as if he would challenge for the back-up spot.

    I'd like to take a look at Matt.

    I think he could be a decent back-up

    I have to admit, I expected the Texans to take a shot at Pat White in the middle rounds of that draft. They worked him out and went to his pro day.

    I'm intrigued but this but I see him as a luxury and it's not a luxury I think we can afford right now.

    to play the what if scenario. If Shaub went down

    how would Winston look , if he were to protect Matt's backside?

    I don't know.

    Most likely opposing defenses aren't going to start moving around their pass rushers so he'd probably still be going against the same DE's he's been going against.

    I wouldnt mind bringing him in although i think he goes to Seattle.

    If Pete Carroll can turn bust Mike Williams around maybe he can do wonders for Leinart.

    Nobody knows him better.

    Carroll has Whitehurst, who looks to be the heir apparent so far. What would he do with Lienart?

    Yeah, I don't understand the Lienart to Seattle talk except that he'd like to be reunited with his old head coach. He's not going to start there and they've already invested too much in Whitehurst to add another.
