Well, that was quick.

Reports surfaced this past weekend that the Cincinnati Bengals were one of several teams interested in quarterback Matt Leinart. But it turns out the Houston Texans were the first to jump on the former first-round draft pick, signing Leinart to a one-year deal.

This leaves the Bengals with Jordan Palmer and Dan LeFevour as their two backup options behind Carson Palmer. It's not a strong group, which means it's vital that Cincinnati keeps its starting quarterback healthy this season.
