Cardinals reportedly shopping Matt Leinart
The Arizona Cardinals have taken the next step in moving to the post-Matt Leinart era as the club has begun actively shopping the quarterback.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the Cardinals are working the phones to see if they can generate some interest in the former first-round draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner from USC. It’s not known what the team is seeking, but it can’t be a lot.
Leinart has run his course in Arizona and it was evident last week that he would not be the team’s starting quarterback this season. In fact, we noted here that Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic speculated that Leinart could be flat out released by the team before Saturday’s deadline to reach 53 players.
Leinart isn’t happy with the situation but he should look at this as a positive. He needs a fresh start and the sooner he can get out of Arizona, the better off he will be.
