The Daily News has learned that the Jets worked out veteran free agent quarterback David Garrard on Thursday as they look to find competition for Mark Sanchez this offseason.

Garrard was in Dolphins’ camp last year before being cut before the start of the regular season.

Garrard, 35, played in 86 games in nine seasons with the Jaguars before getting released before the 2011 season to pave the way for first-round pick Blaine Gabbert.

New Jets general manager John Idzik made it clear that Sanchez will have to compete for the starting job in new offensive coordinator Marty
Morhninweg’s West Coast system.

Garrard has 89 career touchdown passes and a 61.6 career completion percentage. He missed the 2011 season after undergoing back surgery. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last summer before the Dolphins parted ways with him.

Free agent quarterback Brady Quinn is also expected to draw interest from the Jets, according to ESPN.

The Jets have four quarterbacks on their roster: Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms.

Tebow will be released in the coming weeks.

Garrard doesn't strike me as a WCO quarterback.  Especially not one to make quick-release reads.

We want an challenger for Sanchez for a one year deal who can do a better job of tanking out this next season compared to Sanchez, so we get the #1 pick next season. Garrard fits the bill!

At least Garrard has played in the NFL, and isn't some European rugby playing polo-stud, with wrestling experience...or the next big thing to shake out of the Canadian Arena league.

They obviously dont like the 2013 QB class and may be eyeing the 2014 draft. 

I hear they may go to Dukes Sean Renfree only if he is there at 6th round. They'd only go 5th round if they get a low  5th round pick via trade.

We are bringing 5 QBs into camp from what I've read... I highly doubt all 5 of them are going to be superstars, but commence with the whining regardless.

Speak of Renfree....check out Jonathan Cooper on the first play of this Duke/UNC highlight:

 

 

Guy is an animal and the sickest athlete I've seen at G in a while.

 

I actually like Renfree. Sucks he couldn't go through draft season fully healthy.

I think that is what is going to happen.  For better or worse.

 

Matt Moore could beat him out imo though.

Moore should be the starter in 2013 if they want to be watchable at all.

Gato, You are spot on with Cooper. Future string of AllPro teams in his future. Great dominant OG but add in fact the leadership and  intelligence factors and he may be the rare OL you go for in Top 10. A blurb from one of my fellow Tar Heel's on a blog:

 

Jonathan Cooper was named to the All-ACC academic team, along with Pete Mangum and Tim Jackson. Congrats to those three! 

Coop epitomizes all the great things about a UNC athlete, and is one of my favorite heels in recent memory. Great athlete, great great great person, really involved in the community and a great student. Super glad to know we have guys like him representing UNC in the future.

Jonathan Cooper (Wilmington, N.C.), earned consensus first-team All-America honors and 
was named the winner of the ACC’s Jacobs Blocking Trophy, given annually the 
league’s top blocker, as an offensive guard for Tar Heels’ offense which set a 
school record and was ranked eighth nationally in scoring offense. He was also 
the first Outland Trophy finalist in UNC history. A projected first-round NFL 
draft pick, Cooper graduated in December with a degree in communication studies.

The more I see of Cooper the more I wonder if Warmack is the best value at guard in this draft.  Cooper has excellent movement and gets to backers just as well as Warmack.  9 might be too high, but I don't think he gets to our 2nd rd pick.  If he does, he better be a Jet.

from what I heard warmack dropped  at tad at combine,,cooper #1 with most scouts now. warmack ran a horrific 5.49 and didnt do lift reps. There has been speculation he didnt lift cause he knew he would throw a embarrasing # up there. Remember, Warmack had a swarm of talent around him at Bama (aka Gholston at OSU surrounded by 3 other future NFL LBs. Warmack wont be a bust but some small warning signs at combine).

Cooper will be gone by 12-15 range for sure, if not sooner. Stud OL with add in academic prowess seem to flourish and have nice longevity in NFL.

they also say he's none too bright and can only play LG. I suspect he goes in the 18-22 range.
