I’ve heard some rumblings throughout the league that the Seattle Seahawks could be interested in bringing in former USC quarterback Matt Leinart as a fall-back option should other possibilities fail once free agency begins, but nothing confirmed.
However, those rumblings were buoyed by this report by Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News, who says that he’s heard that Seattle head coach Pete Carroll has spoken to his former player about joining Seattle.
Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Leinart will be in a Seahawks uniform in 2011. But it does appear that Leinart could be in play as one of the possible scenarios Seattle is considering in filling the void at quarterback.
Leinart fizzled in Arizona after four seasons, with the Cardinals releasing him after he lost his starting job to Derek Anderson in training camp in 2010. Leinart caught on with Houston as the third-string quarterback, where he was coached by former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Greg Knapp.
Something also to consider, Leinart, Matt Hasselbeck and another former USC product – Carson Palmer – are represented by the same agent, David Dunn. So he should have a good understanding what the Seahawks’ plans are and how his clients might fit in those plans.
