David Garrard to Rams: Sign Me


David Garrard would like a job.

Specifically, Garrard would like a St. Louis Rams quarterback position.

How did this ever come pass on Twitter?

It started with Rams quarterback Sam Bradford tearing his ACL in a preseason game with the Cleveland Browns, which puts a whole new spin on Michael Sam sacking Johnny Manziel later in the game. Sorry Sam, you took Johnny Football’s gesture, but the Browns took your quarterback. They won that trade.

The immediate response has been the declaring of the apocalypse in St. Louis. A season with Shaun Hill in the same division as the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Arizona Cardinals looks really tough. The Rams needed a savior to make things look more optimistic. Trade for Mark Sanchez, some said. Trade for Kirk Cousins, said others. Yes, things may be that bad.

Sign David Garrard, said David Garrard on Twitter.

Garrard has not thrown a regular season pass since 2010, and been on the New York Jets roster last year. That means that he missed being on the Jets roster when current Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was with the Jets. That means this is not some personal favor from Schottenheimer, whom Garrard should not know.

  • To be fair, Garrard is probably not after the starting job. He is more likely just interested in making a check as the emergency quarterback. His lack of playing time over the last three years does not bode well for a comeback. He is 36 years old, but it is not a Tom Brady-type 36 years old.

    The last time Garrard played extensively was when he started 14 games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010. He threw for 2700 yards with a 65% completion percentage. Injuries and time are the factors separating Garrard from that player.

    Still, it can’t hurt to ask, right?
