The plan was for quarterback Jeff Garcia to push starter JaMarcus Russell, the first pick in the 2007 draft, to get better.
Plan B was for Garcia to win the job.
Plan C, as it turns out, was for Garcia to not make the team.
Per a league source, Garcia has been cut.
He had a decent showing in the third preseason game against the Saints, generating a triple-digit passer rating.
If Garcia lands elsewhere, it likely won’t happen until after the first game of the regular season, since his base salary will essentially be guaranteed if he is on a roster as of Week One.
