After being snubbed by Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, the Miami Dolphins signed former Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard to a one-year deal yesterday.
The Dolphins have offered Garrard a chance to compete for the starting job along with current starter Matt Moore. Miami also has second year quarterback Pat Devlin under contract but he has not seen time during an NFL regular season game.
Garrard, who threw for 16,003 yards and 89 touchdowns in his nine year career with Jacksonville, was cut coming out of training camp last season and flirted with the Dolphins before deciding to have back surgery.
The Dolphins still have other options in the quarterback department. They had Alex Smith in for a visit while the 49ers were sniffing around Manning, and while San Francisco will likely welcome him back with open arms, perhaps Miami has a shot if Smith feels snubbed.
Many mock drafts also have the Dolphins selecting Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth pick in the draft in April.
No matter which of these players comes in, with the possible exception of Smith, it looks like another year of mediocre quarterback play in South Florida.
