As other teams have found out over the years, Matt Leinart isn’t the answer. That’s the lesson the Buffalo Bills learned after giving him a shot last night against the Detroit Lions. To be fair to Leinart, he was completely underprepared to be thrown into the Bills’ lineup, and he wasn’t necessarily working with the team’s best group of players either. Still, he needed...
Matt Leinart has one foot in the door of retirement, and perhaps the Buffalo Bills are about to help make that decision a reality.

The Buffalo Bills might have to start an undrafted free agent at quarterback in Week 1 but apparently that's not a good enough reason to keep Matt Leinart around.
Leinart the 10th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft tweeted on Friday that he's been released by the Bills. Although Leinart later deleted the tweet this is the internet and nothing is really ever deleted forever...

Matt Leinart certainly didn't look like the answer at the Buffalo Bills' injury-riddled quarterback position.
Playing very much like someone who's had three days of practice, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner completed 3 of 10 passes for 11 yards and two interceptions in a 35-13 preseason-ending loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.
Both interceptions led to Lions...
The Buffalo Bills just acquired veteran QB Matt Leinart, who will back up undrafted rookie free agent Jeff Tuel in Week 1. And he's totally cool with it.
BY NICK ST. DENISDoug Marrone prefers to look at the present, not the past, when judging his players.That's a good thing for recently-signed quarterback Matt Leinart, who the Buffalo Bills acquired for insurance purposes given the respective injuries of rookie E.J.
