The Arizona Cardinals have been calling around the league trying to trade their former first-round draft pick, has learned.

Several teams have confirmed that they have received calls and e-mails from the Cardinals regarding his services, but it is not yet clear what sort of compensation that Arizona is seeking.

Leinart lost his starting quarterback job this preseason to Derek Anderson.

After his demotion to the second string, Leinart said, “I think this goes beyond the football field.

“I've done everything they've asked of me and more – outplayed the competition in training camp and preseason."

“Obviously there's something that's going on; I don't know what it is."

Wake up, Matt

FOX Sports Arizona: Judging from his reaction to his recent benching, Leinart simply doesn't get it.

Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt dismissed the idea that he has a problem with Leinart.

"I don't know where that comes from,” Whisenhunt said. “It's not about whether you like somebody or you don't like somebody. It's more about what you feel is right for the team."

In three preseason games, Leinart is completing 82.6 percent of his passes and has a passer rating of 110.2 with no turnovers.

Anderson has completed 58.5 percent of his preseason passes with two interceptions and a passer rating of 70.2, which is the lowest of the Cards’ four QBs.
