Report: Dolphins Sign Former Jaguars Quarterback David Garrard

Tuesday March 20th, 2012

The Miami Dolphins have found themselves a new quarterback -- or a new backup, or something. It's not entirely clear. In any event, the Dolphins have signed David Garrard, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.

Garrard spent nine seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, including 2007 when he won nine of his 12 starts and led the Jags to the AFC playoffs. He didn't play at all last season -- Jacksonville released him just days before the start of the regular season, and he chose to undergo back surgery rather than try catching on with another team.

The 34-year-old signalcaller now moves to South Florida, where he may start for the Dolphins or he may not. Garrard will have to compete for incumbent starter Matt Moore for time under center -- and of course, the Dolphins also still have the No. 8 overall pick in next month's draft, meaning they could have a shot at Texas A&M standout Ryan Tannehill.
