Leinart’s Not Giving Up, Thankful for Opportunity had with Texans

The Daily Trojan reported that former Houston Texans backup quarterback Matt Lienart isn’t “giving up.”

“I am not going to give up. I am not going to say it has been unfair, but I am just hoping for the opportunity to come.”

The once tenth pick of the 2006 NFL Draft and a former Heisman Trophy winner, Lienart spent the 2010 season with the Texans, the team he was proud to be a part of:

“Houston helped me get my confidence back, being around great coaches and a great team. It has jumpstarted me this offseason.”

Leinart told the Trojan that his “rollercoaster” of a career has been unpredictable.  He dealt being the highly prized Arizona Cardinal draft pick playing behind future Hall of Famer, Kurt Warner, to a settled-in backup behind former backup, Derrick Anderson.  He never ran a regular season play as a backup to Matt Schaub here in Houston.  If Leinart isn’t immediately signed by a team after free agency opens, don’t expect him to just go away.  He signed a deal with Reebok in August of last year, which his agent says is a “new beginning for Matt.”
