Mired in relative obscurity in recent weeks, veteran QB David Garrard is now making some noise about joining a NFL team due to the rash of recent injuries to signal callers. Garrard was a member of the Miami Dolphins in the pre-season but a knee injury precipitated his release as the team named rookie QB Ryan Tannehill the starter and Matt Moore as the team’s quarterback tandem. After proclaiming himself healthy, which NFL team should sign the veteran signal caller?
The Pittsburgh Steelers immediately come to mind. With QB Ben Roethlisberger suffering what is being described as a “unique” shoulder injury, the Steelers could be in trouble down the stretch at the quarterback position. The backup quarterback in Pittsburgh is Byron Leftwich, the quarterback Garrard replaced as the starter when the pair were in Jacksonville. Garrard is a better quarterback than Leftwich and the Steelers need to give Garrard some consideration if Roethlisberger’s injury is going to be lengthy.
