ORLANDO, Fla. -

Sources tell Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore that the Orlando Predators have signed former Florida Gators quarterback Chris Leak. 

Leak played for the Florida Gators from 2003 to 2006, under coaches Ron Zook and Urban Meyer, leading the Gators in 2006 to their first SEC Championship since 2000. Leak was named the MVP of the 2007 BCS National Championship game, in which the Gators defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes.

"We think Chris is a great fit for the Predators," Predators Head Coach Bret Munsey said in a release. "He certainly has the tools to be a great quarterback in the league."

Leak started the season with the Arena Football League’s Jacksonville Sharks. He threw for five touchdowns as the starting QB in the team’s win against Kansas City.
