QB Matt Leinart tweets that he's been cut by Bills
The five-day Matt Leinart era is apparently over in Buffalo. Leinart tweeted on Friday that he's been cut by the Bills.
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.
Leinart's five-day career in Buffalo will probably most be remembered for the seven-yard pass he threw to tight end Lee Smith in the Bills 35-13 preseason loss to the Lions on Thursday. Leinart finished the game 3-of-10 for 11 yards while also throwing two interceptions.
"I look at that [Heisman] trophy now and knowing that Matt Leinart has it, with how his career went, I would rather him have it," Peterson told the Los Angeles Times in July, via PFT. "At least he has something positive to look back on and say, 'I won the Heisman.'"
