Jets Bring In David Garrard

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets worked out veteran quarterback David Garrard on Thursday.

Garrard never made it to the regular season with the Dolphins this year, after spending nine years with the Jaguars. If he could stay well, he’d be a viable backup option behind Mark Sanchez, but there has been little recent indication Garrard can do that.

Knee problems last year knocked him out of the Dolphins’ mix, and he’s been out of work since. The 35-year-old missed the 2011 season after undergoing back surgery.
