David Garrard is Desperate Enough to Make Case For Himself in Joining Miami Dolphins

(Steve Mitchell/USA Today Sports)

Last week, David Garrard participated in a workout with the New York Jets, but it doesn’t look like the veteran quarterback will be joining the team as a backup to Mark Sanchez anytime soon. Now, it appears Garrard is trying to make a case to possibly join another team from the AFC East–the Miami Dolphins.

Garrard recently discussed how he would love another shot with the Dolphins in 2013 considering how he missed out on the opportunity to start last season. All signs pointed to Garrard being Miami’s starter last season, but injuries prevented him from playing during the 2012 season.

In fact, it’s been more than two years since Garrard started a game in the NFL and unfortunately for him–things are different in Miami now after Ryan Tannehill ended up playing as a rookie last season. The Dolphins have made it clear they hope Tannehill is their answer when it comes to a quarterback to build the franchise around–so Garrard would be nothing but a backup if Miami had any interest in bringing him on board.

Still, Garrard is in the type of position where he’s not going to receive much interest from most teams in the NFL considering it’s debatable if he would even be reliable as a backup. Plus, if a team like the Dolphins ends up passing on him as a backup quarterback–it’s safe to say that’s a major indication of where a player stand in their career.
