Report: Texans Release Backup Quarterback Matt Leinart

There is news regarding the Houston Texans and their quarterback situation, but relax -- it has nothing to do with Peyton Manning. The team has released QB Matt Leinart, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Leinart played bits and pieces of 11 games for the Texans in 2011, beginning the season as a backup for Matt Schaub but stepping in as a starter twice late in the year. He finished the season 10-of-13 for 57 yards and one touchdown (in other words, a good first quarter for someone like Manning).

Leinart, a former Heisman Trophy winner who turns 29 in May, was the Arizona Cardinals' first-round pick in the 2006 NFL draft, going No. 10 overall. He has 3,950 career passing yards and 15 TDs to his name.
