NFL Free Agents 2011: Matt Leinart to Seattle Seahawks Now a Possibility
Leinart And Carroll Could Be Back Together In 2011
One thing that became immediately obvious about Pete Carroll when he took the Seattle Seahawks coaching job was that he was going to show zero favoritism toward his former USC players.
He did not favor them in the draft, and when Matt Leinart became available, Carroll showed no interest in signing him.
That could change in the 2011 season, but nothing is guaranteed. Carroll knows too well his job is to win games and that showing a soft spot for former players down on their luck could be a fast ticket back to the unemployment line.
We hear the Seahawks spoke to former USC quarterback Matt Leinart about joining the team next season.
This is pretty thin as far as rumors go because the Seahawks would not be allowed to speak to Leinart at the moment due to lockout restrictions.
That being said, we already know communication is happening through backdoor channels, so the report is not completely without merit.
Carroll needs more depth at quarterback, and bringing in Leinart is a way to add depth, and if Leinart works out, great. Leinart will not be offered any kind of huge contract, those days are over and Leinart will have to earn his way back to prominence.
