Jets work out Garrard
The New York Jets are showing how desperate they are at quarterback. They worked out former Jacksonville Jaguars QB David Garrard today. Garrard hasn’t played in a NFL game since 2010 but with the group they have could definitely be an upgrade. Especially if he’s healthy and can stay healthy.
The Daily News has learned that the Jets worked out veteran free agent quarterback David Garrard on Thursday as they look to find competition for Mark Sanchez this offseason. (The Jets Stream – NY Daily News)
The Jets are switching to a West Coast offense under new offensive coordinator Marty Morhninweg. With that they’ve made it clear Mark Sanchez will have to compete for a starting job. Garrard well he could be perfect for Marty’s West Coast system.
The main reason is his accuracy and ability to make quick throws. In 2010, Garrard completion rate was 64.5%, over his career he’s thrown at a 61.6% rate. My only concern is whether or not his body would be able to hold up under the pressure he’d get behind that poor Jets offensive line.
