The New York Jets worked out 35 year old vet QB David Garrard last week, and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News had said his work out “went well” Garrard has not played in two years Prior to his training camp stint with the Dolphins were he got cut due to injuring his knee competing for the starting job, Garrard played for nine seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. There, he posted 16,003 passing yards, 89 touchdowns and 54 interceptions in 86 games. According to ESPN’s insider Adam Schefter he “anticipates putting a deal together” for the jets to sign him.
My thought on the possible signing
I think he would be a fantastic addition to the Jets Roster and would push Mark Sanchez for the starting job, i see a lot of fellow jet fans not too happy about the possible signing, but was it not only last year that the vet beat out Matt Moore for the starting job for the Miami dolphins, but was cut due to the knee, Jets GM did say he would bring in competition for the QB position, everybody has to remember the jets are cash strapped and have very little to spend and many holes to fill, this move is a low investment with high rewards, really this could be a smart move by GM John Idzik.
