Seahawks may have a split of opinion on Leinart
As we try to compile a list of the potential suitors for quarterback Matt Leinart, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that there are indications that the Seahawks have an internal split of opinion regarding the potential pursuit of coach Pete Carroll’s former protege.
If that’s the case, the anti-Leinart crowd apparently is getting the word out, given that Clark Judge of CBSSports.com has reported that the Seahawks aren’t interested.
We’re assuming that if anyone in the organization is interested, it’s Carroll. If accurate, this would mean that G.M. John Schneider is opposed.
Meanwhile, and as Peter King reported on Saturday during our Notre Dame halftime segment, the Texans are interested. (We’ve confirmed that this is indeed the case.)
We’re hearing that the Raiders remain a possibility, based on the unpredictability that owner Al Davis brings to every personnel decision.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports also throws the Vikings and Jaguars into the mix. King heard yesterday that the Titans could be a candidate, too, which would put Leinart and arch-nemesis Vince Young on the same team.
UPDATE: If the Vikings, Titans, Jaguars, or Bengals have interest in Leinart, we’re told that none of those teams as of last night made their interest known.
