Garrard expected to visit Rams after Dolphins


Free agent quarterback David Garrard will be at Dolphins headquarters on Monday. According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Garrard is expected to meet with the St. Louis Rams after that.

St. Louis’ new coaching staff is actively seeking an upgrade on former backup A.J. Feeley. The Rams showed interest in Shaun Hill before he re-signed with the Lions. Garrard appears to be Plan B.

Garrard is 34 years old and was out of football last season while recovering from a serious back operation. He’d still likely be a better option than Feeley, and if 100-percent healthy could put some heat on starter Sam Bradford in training camp. Bradford took a large step back in 2011 after a promising rookie year.

  1. “Bradford took a large step back in 2011”

    It didn’t help that the team had so many injuries. It’s hard to have a good season when the OL is shredded and the WR had injuries. Not to mention a pretty crappy D. I don’t think it’s fair to make that statement.

  2. Bradford will be learning this third offense in three years – what do you expect?

  3. If this guy puts heat on Bradford, the Rams are in a heap of trouble. They just traded out of the 1A QB in the draft.

  4. Hearing if pats sign amendola to offer sheet, welker will sign tender and pats would then possibly trade him to Rams for Amendola & the 2nd rd pick got from Wasington

    Not to insult, but Whitehurst actually went back to San Diego.

    But, the Rams need everything on offense!!!

  6. Now that the dolphins effed up everything with flynn, their options are running thin. Why would you low ball the an who knows the system and is ready to play right now? It’s not like he was asking for a kings ransom. 3 years, up to $28 million with $10 million guaranteed. Looks like Seattle showed him the respect he deserved even though he was a way better fit for Miami. I hope flynn lights it up in Seattle and Miami has to go another 15 years without a qb. Thank god I’m not a phins fan.

  7. If I was Miami I would Sign Smith now or not let Garrad out of the door Monday and let him compete for the starting job.

  8. Bradford did take a step back, but that’s what happens when Josh McDaniels joins the offense. He’ll be fine now that the Josh is once again walking around the Pats locker room with his nose stuck up Bills arse.

  9. Bradford didn’t take a step back!!! His receivers and coaching staff and gm did!!! As well as his o-line. Mike sims walker???? Paleeeeezzzze.

    Maybe they should see if Dan Marino wants to play

    Marino at 50 would still be an upgrade over Garrard at 34.

    After all, with the use of Nutrasystem for men, Marino is at his playing weight which is probably better shape than Garrard is in.
