RUMOR ALERT: David Garrard moving South?

David Garrard's days as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars are numbered according to many sources around the league. Alex Marvez on SIRIUS NFL Radio Friday afternoon even reported that if Blaine Gabbert has a strong preseason the Jags are ready to hand him the starting QB job. The Jags (one of the cheapest franchises in the league) are in no way interseted in paying Garrard his $8 mill or so salary and have him just be the back-up. Not to mention Jacksonville would be satisfied with having Luke McCown as the back-up meaning Garrard would be released.

This would be one of the final decisions Jacksonville makes to their roster so it would come as one of the final cuts prior to the first game. If/When Garrard is released the Miami Dolphins are said to be the team who will have the most interest in Gerrard. Believe it or not, according to sources the Dolphins are still behind the scenes said to be desperately trying to upgrade their quarterback position even at this late date. If  David Garrard were to be on the open market the Fins would jump all over that.

This is a rumor, so take it for what its worth at this point in time. But it is something to keep in mind and monitor as we continue to move forward in the preseason.
