HOUSTON (AP) - Quarterback Matt Leinart has officially joined the Houston Texans.

The former Heisman Trophy signed a one-year contract Tuesday. He was cut by the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday and agreed to terms with the Texans earlier this week.

The 27-year-old Leinart will be the No. 3 quarterback on the Texans behind Matt Schaub and Dan Orlovsky.

Leinart complained that he had issues with Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, and the two met late in the preseason. With Kurt Warner retired, Leinart figured he would get to start this season, but Derek Anderson won the job in training camp.
