Texans Re-Sign Matt Leinart To Two-Year Deal

It would appear that last night's report about Matt Leinart reuniting with Pete Carroll in Seattle was premature. And erroneous.

John McClain is reporting that the Texans have re-signed Leinart, and Adam Schefter says it's a two-year deal worth $5.5 million ($3.75 million in guaranteed money).

I suppose I like Leinart as QB2 better than Dan Orlovsky (if for no other reason than we haven't seen Leinart misplace his helmet as a Texan just yet), but the fact of the matter is that your Houston Texans are pretty much hosed if Matt Schaub misses any appreciable amount of time, so this doesn't qualify as an earth-shattering move one way or the other. Except to Orlovsky perhaps, as I don't believe Kubiak keeps Orlovsky as his QB3 when T.J. Yates is so much cheaper.  If Orlovsky isn't cut tomorrow, it still seems far more likely than not that he'll be jettisoned before Week One.

And yes, I'd still prefer Sage Rosenfels over either Leinart or Orlovsky. I'm stupid like that.
