Jets Announce Garrard Is Making Another Comeback
David Garrard has made a return to the Jets. Garrard, a nine-year NFL veteran who originally signed with us back in March before a balky knee forced him to leave in May, is on the exempt list for two games and we have this week and next to decide whether to activate him.
I was able to take the whole summer off and let my body heal. I started training a couple of months ago and my knee feels great, said Garrard. Im sitting at home, watching games thinking, Why am I at home? Why I am doing this to myself?' I didnt want to have any regrets one day.
The 61, 239-pound Garrard is a career 61.6% passer with 89 TDs and 54 INTs. A fourth-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002, the East Carolina product is eligible to do everything with the club including practice and attend meetings except play in games.
