The New York Jets have been tied to practically every breathing quarterback potentially available this offseason, so a report from the New York Daily News on Thursday does not come as a surprise.
Manish Mehta reported David Garrard recently worked out for the team. Last with the Miami Dolphins in training camp last year, Garrard is trying to resurrect a career stalled by back problems. In a free-agent market bereft of quality options, someone figures to give Garrard a job.
The Jets have also been tied to Brady Quinn and Garrard's former teammate Matt Moore as potential players who could compete with Mark Sanchez for a starting job. (Tim Tebow is expected to be released shortly.) Matt Flynn is another name that makes some sense in Gang Green.
A lot of people have been poking fun at the Jets for this murderer's row of quarterback options. As tempting as that is, can't we wait for new general manager John Idzik actually to sign one of them before we kill the Jets for it?
