There has been some chatter around the Internet that the Bills are one of three teams that may be interested in trading for Matt Leinart.
The first report came from Adam Schefter Twitter account:
@Adam_Schefter: Three teams have discussed trading for QB Matt Leinart — Bills, Raiders, Giants. Now we wait to see if any pull trigger by this weekend.
Leinart has two years remaining on a six-year, $50.8 million deal and hasn’t had much time on the field in the past few seasons, as he’s been forced to watch on the sidelines as Kurt Warner lite up the scoreboard.
But before you panic about acquiring another QB that hasn’t proved anything yet in the league, Chris Brown of Inside The Bills quickly put this rumor to rest.
Buffalobills.com has confirmed that the Bills have not had any discussions with the Cardinals in regards to Matt Leinart and aren’t anticipating any in the future. The report is simply not true.
With all the preseason talk that Chan Gailey was happy with the QB’s the Bills currently have on their roster, it is definitely interesting to see the Bills linked to the first ‘disgruntled’ QB of the year. With an abundance of talented running backs in place, perhaps a RB/QB swap isn’t far off in the Bills future.
