Matt Leinart’s days in Arizona appear to be numbered. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that the Cardinals are shopping the former first-round pick. As you know, Leinart was recently benched for Derek Anderson. His response to the benching has been about as divisive as it gets.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic quoted Leinart as saying "I feel like I've outplayed the competition, training camp, preseason," he said. "I think my play speaks about that. For me, this goes beyond the football field.

"The philosophy is you want the best 11 guys to play. I feel like I've proved that with my performance. I don't really know what else I could possibly do, so it probably goes beyond football. For me, I just really want an explanation, and I haven't been given one."

The Cardinals have very little leverage in trading Leinart right now. Any team that acquires the fifth-year pro would be looking to make him a backup -- which, obviously, is a role Leinart would not be thrilled with.

If we were to speculate about landing spots…the Bills are always at the top of this list, given that they haven’t had a quarterback since Drew Bledsoe left. The Browns may want to look beyond Jake Delhomme; if they have doubts about Colt McCoy, might they be willing to give Leinart a shot? And, of course, given that Leinart is a disappointing former first-round pick, the Raiders are certainly a possibility. A darkhorse team might be the Texans, who badly need a backup for Matt Schaub.

Indi will not pay 2.5 million this year and THIRTEEN MILLION next season for a backup qb that has never even succeeded in the NFL.

Nobody will pay that kind of money for Leinart,,, NOBODY.... I'll keep saying that as long as this thread exists ....

Only way anybody gives him a chance is if and only if they cut him, which I think they are going to do soon enough.  Somebody might pay minimum wage or maybe, just MAYBE one million for him per season....

Other then that, he's all done.  But he's pocketed 35 million so far.... not bad for a dud.

If I'm right, Kurt Warner was also a class act, had a great work ethic and was passionate about the game. [If i was] an understudy NFL quarterback, I probably would have thrived to have such a mentor. But if even Leinart couldn't draw any lesson after all these seasons being Warner's backup, how would Peyton Manning do anything either about Leinart! Do we have a lost cause here? Looks so...

Yeah, we have one of two situations with Leinart; he's either a lost cause, or he still needs a lot more schooling.  (I lean towards the first.)  However, if he's ever to amount to anything then he'll need a few years of tutelage and that is no longer in Arizona with Warner retired.  Leinart needs to go to a team with an established franchise qb.  He also needs to go someplace where his weak arm will make him a liability even if he does eventually mature.  (That leaves NE out.)

The Colts, meanwhile, may have the best starting qb in the NFL but they are a mess after that.  Leinart has at least started some games and he's experienced winning in college.  If he accepts that he is a back up qb, (at best), in the NFL then Indy may be the best place for him.

Leinart deserves a chance----sorry he is a turd. He might make some money off the old ladies down at the bingo hall showing off his junk!!!

He will not be a Packer. He isn't Thompson's style of player-----so that trade idea for Flynn can go into the barf bag!!

He minds someone of Steve Young. Why because he has dark hair and is a lefty---sorry but your on crack!!!

Vikes could use him. He is better than Tjack even if he is a major disappoinment---Wow good point. Sounds like Matt is going to wear Purple and will have Prince's playoff song #1 played song on his ipod!!! WTF---your really on crack if you think that he is a good fit there!!! Even if I'm pulling for Chillie to make another brilliant executive decission!!!

If you don't remember I'll refresh your memory.  Leinart started while Warner was on the bench, he was ineffective like something terrible.  His completion % is awful, his decision making is poor and he had a bad attitude and still has one!! This guy has had more than an opportunity to show what he can do and if Derek Anderson is the choice over Leinart, then you know he's bad!! Denny Green couldn't win with Leinart nor can Whisenhunt.  Sorry, but he's done!!
