“I think it is worth more than every car I’ve owned combined, so I’m being pretty careful with it,’’ Gabbert told Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
Gabbert should be able to afford any car he wants once he signs his rookie deal. In the meantime, Gabbert will try to unseat Garrard as the team’s starter.
“I am going to make it extremely hard for that to happen,’’ Garrard said.
We seriously doubt Gabbert could win the job by Week One on a shortened offseason. Garrard is due $7.975 million and should collect on it. The bigger question is whether Garrard will be around in 2012.
“I said it before, if he’s better than me, he should play,” Garrard said. “The team should have the best guys out there on the field.’’
