PHOTO: Where's USC's Matt Leinart? Supporting his local newspaper Published: April 3, 2014

Former USC quarterback Matt Leinart was one of the greatest college signal callers of all-time. But his pro career didn't go as planned.

What's Leinart doing now? The former Heisman Trophy winner is currently pitching papers for The Orange County Register.

That's probably not his only gig, but his face has appeared in more Orange County newspaper sales racks than NFL games in the past year. Leinart's last NFL appearance came in 2012 and he was released by the Buffalo Bills in 2013.

It's a far fall in prestige for a guy that probably would have been the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft following USC's BCS National Championship win over Oklahoma in 2005.

But kudos to Leinart to supporting newspapers.
