The New York Jets signed veteran quarterback David Garrard on Monday in hopes of bolstering their backup corps behind starter Mark Sanchez, the team announced.

Garrard, 35, has not played since the 2010 season when he threw for 23 touchdowns and 2,734 yards as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He made the Pro Bowl following the season.

Last March, Garrard signed with the Miami Dolphins on a one-year deal and was the favorite to win the starting job before undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his back. The team released him in September.

Garrard, a nine-year veteran, has thrown for 16,003 yards with 89 touchdowns and 54 interceptions in his career.
