Bills sign Matt Leinart

In dire need of reinforcements at quarterback with rookie EJ Manuel sidelined following knee surgery and veteran Kevin Kolb dealing with concussion symptoms, the Buffalo Bills signed veteran free agent quarterback Matt Leinart.

Leinart entered the NFL as a first-round draft selection of the Arizona Cardinals in 2006, selected 10th overall.

He has started 18 of 33 games, playing for the Houston Texans, and Oakland Raiders.

The 6-foot-5, 232-pound former USC standout has completed 366-of-641 passes for 4,065 yards with 15 touchdowns and 21 interceptions in his NFL career.
