Thursday August 28th, 2014

Former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard expects to play in the NFL this season, he said on NFL AM.

Garrard, 36, has not played in an NFL game since 2010 when he was the starter for the Jaguars. He signed with the Jets last season, but did not play in any games.

Earlier this week he said he would be interested in joining the St. Louis Rams after quarterback Sam Bradford tore his ACL and was ruled out for the season.

“I actually haven’t gotten any calls yet but my agent has reached out to the Rams and to a number of teams,” Garrard said on NFL AMvia Pro Football Talk. "They’ve all said they have me on their ‘hot list’ so I think probably something will happen after these last cuts once teams realize who is available, who is not available and then maybe somebody like myself can join a team.”

In nine NFL seasons, Garrard has passed for 16,003 yards, 89 touchdowns and 54 interceptions. He had a 39-37 record as the starting quarterback for Jacksonville.
