Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post believes veteran quarterback David Garrard will end up not making the Miami Dolphins 53-man roster.

“At quarterback, you’ll notice a glaring omission from the depth chart: David Garrard. That’s not a mistake. It’s not looking good for Garrard to make the roster now that he’s out at least another three weeks following knee surgery.

“The big issue with Garrard is that, as a vested veteran, his entire $2.25 million salary becomes guaranteed if he’s on the Week 1 roster. If Ryan Tannehill continues to play well and grabs the starting job, it makes Garrard more expendable, especially with a healthy Matt Moore as a solid backup. Plus, with Garrard’s injury history – he hasn’t played a game since 2010 – it’s hard to see the Dolphins guaranteeing him his salary when he’s no certainty to even play a snap this year.

“More likely, the Dolphins will reach an injury settlement with Garrard and release him, and second-year pro Pat Devlin, who has held his own this camp, will slide into the No. 3 quarterback spot. The biggest reason to keep Garrard would be if Tannehill looks awful during the rest of the preseason, but so far he has looked very good,” wrote Volin.

I can definitely see Garrard not making the Dolphins’ final roster.  Matt Moore is a viable quarterback even though he hasn’t looked good in practice and rookie Ryan Tannehill might be ready to start sooner rather than later.
