The New York Jets quarterback situation might have just become a bit clearer if we are to believe a tweet from Adam Schein of Sirius Radio Schein on Sports. According to Schein’s Twitter feed, he received a text from Garrard which almost sounded like he was set to retire from the NFL: Text from Garrard: “Having to call it quits. My knee is not holding up. Continuing to swell after practices. Limiting what I can do.” — Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) May 15, 2013 Garrard has not played a regular season down in the NFL since the 2010 season. He was cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars just prior to the 2011 season, and signed with the Dolphins last offseason. But he never took the field for Miami after have arthroscopic surgery. He was released. The Jets signed Garrard on March 11, and was expected to compete for the starting job. If Garrard is indeed stepping away, that would leave the competition between Mark Sanchez and rookie Geno Smith. This might essentially save Sanchez his spot on the Jets roster. The Jets first OTA is scheduled for May 20.
