Bills deny talks for Leinart, who wants to start

For whatever reason, Matt Leinart is the dominating storyline this week. I mean, the reason is obvious, it's just weird that he's becoming a left-handed, less-talented, backup-worthy version of Brett Favre.

Or something. We mentioned that he's on the trading block -- that doesn't appear to be at issue right now.

What might be at issue is the Buffalo Bills' interest in the former Heisman Trophy winner: Buffalo Bills [dot com]'s Chris Brown has called the report that Buffalo is interested "erroneous." He states that the "Bills have not had any discussions with the Cardinals" regarding Leinart and that "the report is simply not true."

Jay Glazer adds an update to his his earlier report that "three teams" have talked to the Cards, saying he's spoken with Leinart, who tells Glazer that "he wants to start somewhere and not be a backup."

All of these reports create quite the conundrum: Leinart will NOT start in New York, he's unlikely to start in Oakland, and he could absolutely start in Buffalo. However, if the Bills aren't interested in Leinart, which they claim they are not, it's going to be tough for him to find a team where he can start.

Adding to the bizarre nature of all of this, Schefter responds to the Bills report on Twitter by saying that the "Bills are adamant they are not trading for Leinart, despite discussions they did have this summer with the Cardinals for the QB."

Emphasis mine, because if the Bills previously spoke with the Cardinals about Leinart (and I'm drawing a blank on that, honestly, but it's entirely possible), they DO have at least some interest, even if they haven't recently spoken with the Cardinals about the possibility for a trade.

And in an email to Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk , Schefter clarifies the report: he "didn't report Leinart would be traded to Buffalo" but "simply reported that Buffalo and Arizona discussed it this summer. There's nothing erroneous in that."

In other words, when Schefter tweeted in the past tense, he didn't mean "yesterday" or "this morning" he meant "this summer."

comparing Matt Leinart to Brett Farve in the  same sentence in any fashion is unfair to brett.  MATT leinart  is a bust. He will never be any where near the talent of farve  . EVER!
