Jason La Canfora of NFL.com seems to be all over the story. Apparently the Dolphins were looking at former Jaguars starting QB David Garrard to “bring his talents to South beach” (thanks LeBron). The Dolphins were also interested in former Panther/Brown/Saint Jake “throw 30 interceptions” Delhomey. Garrard seems to be the front-runner in the race, but the Dolphins don’t appear interested in shelling out any guaranteed money–and Garrard doesn’t seem interested.
The Dolphins have now resumed interest in Garrard, who would enter the team as the most experienced veteran–including current starter Henne. The reports list that it is currently unclear whether the Dolphins would give Garrard a chance to compete for the starting job right away, if ever. It does seem, however, that the shoulder injury to Henne that occurred yesterday may be more serious than originally thought.
It really wouldn’t be a bad move for Garrard, if in the event he got a chance to compete for the starting position. Garrard would have an above-average run game, a top-flight receiver (Brandon Marshall), and an elite left tackle (Jake Long)
