Leinart happy to land with Raiders

National Football Post

Matt Leinart's NFL career has not exactly lived up to the hype.

But as he has signed with the Oakland Raiders, Leinart believes the situation is a good fit for him, according to the Contra Costa Times. The Raiders will be running a version of the West Coast offense, something that should fit Leinart's skill set.

"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.

New Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was Leinart's quarterbacks coach in Houston last season, when Leinart's season was cut short with a broken collarbone.
