A lot can change in 10 years.

Back in 2004, Matt Leinart was living the good life. The former USC quarterback had just won a Heisman Trophy and was a two-time AP national champion.

A decade later, Leinart is out of the NFL and appearing in advertisements for The Orange County Register, a local newspaper in Southern California. 

Leinart was a member of four NFL teams from 2006 to 2013 (Cardinals, Texans, Raiders, Bills), but he was cut by Buffalo in the preseason.
