Adam Schefter, via Twitter, is reporting that the Texans and Matt Leinart have reached agreement on a one-year contract.
No word yet on how this will affect the last spot on the practice squad, but Dan Orlovsky should watch himself. Of course, if he knew how to do that in the first place, maybe the Texans wouldn’t have had to pick up Leinart.
Leinart, the disgraced Cardinals QB, has been described by The Chronicle’s Lance Zierlein as being “afraid, pure and simple" and a “checkdown machine,” so think of him as David Carr without five years of NFL starts. This will probably be a bigger signing for the comedic possibilities of bloggers than for the actual Texans season.
