David Garrard hasn't thrown an NFL pass since 2010, but the free agent quarterback tweeted Monday that he'd love to get a call from the St. Louis Rams. The Rams lost quarterback Sam Bradford for the season after he tore his ACL in a preseason game on Saturday.

Garrard was last a member of the New York Jets. After originally announcing his intention to retire because of knee issues in May 2013, he made a comeback and re-signed with the Jets in October.
The 36-year-old started 76 games for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2002 to 2010, throwing 89 touchdowns and 54 interceptions and completing 61.6 percent of his passes. The quarterback has thrown for over 2,000 yards in a season four times in his career, most recently in 2010.
The Jaguars released Garrard in September 2011, after which he elected to have surgery for a herniated disc. He was signed by the Dolphins in 2012, but had arthroscopic surgery that summer and was released soon after.
