Matt Leinart Says Coming to Oakland Makes Sense

Matt Leinart is back out west, and says that it made sense for him to put on the Silver and Black.

“It made perfect sense for me to come here because this is a brand new offense for almost everyone on the offensive side of the ball except for myself and (guard) Mike Brisiel, who is from Houston, as well,” Leinart said during a conference call Monday.

Leniart has a face he knows very well with him in Oakland, as former Houston quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp is now the Raiders offensive coordinator.

Leinart has been with the Cardinals and Texans, and could be a solid fit for the Raiders as the backup to Carson Palmer.

    Yes, and if Matt can fully focus on football (not partying) he can finally show that he is a capable pro.
