NFL.com’s Mike Lombardi has him on a short list of surprising players that could be waived or dealt soon enough. We’ll see.â†µ
I definitely don’t get the feeling that Whisenhunt has Leinart penned in as the quarterback of the future in Arizona. Even if Leinart isn’t waived during the season, I think he’ll be gone in the offseason before his salary has the chance to balloon. It’ll take a spectacular season for Matt to secure his long-term future in Arizona, and I don’t think he has one in him.â†µ
But all that aside, will the team cut their losses early and begin the healing? Probably not, but I agree with Lombardi: if Matt’s not your man then get on getting on.â†µ

Kent Somers, Arizona Republic beat writer for the Cards, says the team isn't considering moving or releasing Leinart.
