The 35-year-old said he was undecided about returning to New York. Garrard told Hubbuch that he appreciates the Jets bringing him back this season, but he wants to play and understands that it's "Geno's team."
The 10-year NFL vet said he's healthier now than he's been over the past several seasons and wants a shot to play regularly.

Many hand-holding veteran quarterbacks have picked up a nice paycheck for several years after the NFL threw them to the sidelines.
