The Dolphins need a backup quarterback. David Garrard is looking for a job.
Seems like a perfect fit, right?
After all, Garrard might have been Miami’s starter last season, if not for an ill-timed knee injury.
However, a reunion doesn’t look likely — at least not yet.
Garrard, 35 and healthy again, tried out for the Jets last week, and New York apparently has real interest in bringing him in to compete with Mark Sanchez.
The Jets are one of several teams that have contacted Garrard about a possible comeback.
The Dolphins are not. Miami brass has not yet reached out to see if he would be interested in backing up Ryan Tannehill.
Too bad, Garrard said, because he would be just fine doing so.
“I would love to be back in Miami. I love the coaching staff; I love Ryan,” said Garrard, who has not taken a regular-season snap since 2010.
“Getting back in the league is what I want. I want to be able to go out in my career playing at a high level. I don’t want some freakish injuries to decide my career.”
