David Garrard‘s agent Al Irby told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union that three NFL teams have already contacted him regarding Garrard.
“The system’s going to do what it’s going to do,” Irby said. “He has gotten some calls, they know there’s some interest. David can still play it’s obvious. He knows he’s gonna have options and he’s gonna just sit back and let the offers come in and make a decision.”
“Been assured that the job was his this year,” Irby told Ganguili. “That’s why we’re all shocked, and so was he. This had to be a last minute decision, that’s the only thing I can say. I don’t think these guys would purposely tell me one thing and [do another].”
Here’s a look at some of the speculative options for Garrard.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweets that Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has officially removed them as a possibility for Garrard.
It’s hard to think that a quarterback tandem of Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst is going to be good enough to win games but then again, adding Garrard to that group doesn’t exactly make them contenders.
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times he has confidence in rookie quarterback Tyrod Taylor by saying that “Tyrod’s our backup” but added that he “wouldn’t rule out” anything.
Some mixed signals here but the Ravens should still be considering an option until more definitive information comes out.
Other speculative options should include the Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers, and Washington Redskins.
