Amid speculation that the Jets’ quarterback Wheel of (Mis)Fortune could land on David Garrard, Garrard has let the cat out of the bag.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, Garrard said Monday that Geno Smith will remain the starter.
“Just kind of status quo,” Garrard said. “That’s info I received.”
Per Cimini, Garrard added that he wasn’t sure whether he was supposed to say that.
But what does it matter? If the Jets aren’t going to play Garrard after Sunday’s abomination at MetLife Stadium, the Jets arguably never will.
And so it will be the second-round rookie from West Virginia who hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since before the World Series began who will get the honors against the undrafted rookie from Penn State on Sunday, when the Raiders come to New Jersey for a game between two teams who are treating the balance of the 2013 regular season as an extended 2014 preseason.
UPDATE 2:53 p.m. ET: Per multiple reports, Smith told reporters that he has been informed he’ll remain the starter.
