David Garrard Hoping For NFL Return

David Garrard hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2010, but the veteran quarterback believes that he still has some quality football left in him. The 36-year-old told NFL AM (video link) that his agent reached out to the Rams after Sam Bradford‘s season-ending injury and he personally feels he’d be a good fit for them or another team looking for an experienced QB.

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. “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.”

Garrard started 76 games for the Jaguars from 2002 through 2010. He hooked on with the Dolphins in 2012 and the Jets last year but injuries kept him off the field in both attempts. Now, Garrard says that his troublesome knee is feeling good after giving it some much needed rest. Teams aren’t beating down Garrard’s door to sign him, but in a league where Brett Favre reportedly had interest from the Rams just one year ago, anything is possible.
