NFL quarterback Matt Leinart won’t let a little thing like being dropped from the Houston Texans bring him down ... TMZ has learned, he just shelled out $1.45 MILLION on a sweet new beach pad in California.
 
The former Heisman trophy winner -- whose fractured collarbone all but sealed his fate on the Texans -- will be chillin' out this summer in a 3-bdrm, 3-bath ocean view home in Manhattan Beach, CA.

The beachfront property comes fully equipped with 2 jacuzzi tubs, 2 fireplaces, 2 decks and a panoramic ocean view -- adding up to over 2,100 sq. ft. of perfect space to relax and recover in the non-Texas sun.   
 
Now that Matt’s found an awesome new beach pad ... all he needs is a team -- and a working arm.

Shoulda spent like half of that on a QB coach so he'd have an NFL future instead of being another broke joke idiot from the NFL. (and no a USC degree won't get you anything but laughed at outside of California).

I'm not sure what's more laughable that you didn't file this under "TMZ Sports" or that you actually called him an "NFL Star." I know most of you are gay but there has to be one sports fan somewhere on your staff to advise you on such matters.

He should have bought something that he can afford on a gym teacher's salary.

You're dreaming $1.45M for beach front property. In Manhattan Beach. Pl-ease. Beach front is on the sand not an ocean view. The 134 in Eagle Rock has an ocean view for pete sake. No way a whopping 2100 s.f. He's NEVER going to find his way out of that monstrosity..

Worthless as a QB, never REALLY tried or perfected his craft and obviously was purely in it for the money and stardom.

What a loser.

It looks like nice digs. It's warm looking as opposed to most of those cold showplaces that people with a few bucks have. I'd consider it if I had a spare 1.5 mil and lived near the Pacific instead of the Atlantic. Not sure who this QB is but I like his house.
