So the Miami Dolphins finally address the QB position by signing former Jags QB David Garrard ,the Dolphins add depth but are still in search for a franchise QB after the signing.

While Garrard had success in Jacksonville, his career has declined and is up there in age. Garrard is also coming off an injury and most likely was brought in to compete with Matt Moore this off-season.

This is another move that the Dolphins fan base wont be pleased about as it appears that the Dolphins are once again settling at the QB position.

The Dolphins chose to sign a stop gap QB but hopefully will still address the position in the 1st round of this year’s draft. Fans already seem on board for the #BlowforBarkley train early this year.



In other Dolphins news, the team has decided to let of vet Yeremiah Bell saving 4.5 million dollars in cap space. Bell has been a leader on and off the field for this team however his age, declining cover skills, and cap hit made him expendable this season. Of course Ireland did not give Bell the common courtesy of joining the free agent market until a full week had passed, another typical classless Jeff Ireland move.

Well there you have it folks David Garrard comes to the rescue, we will see if he can even beat out Matt Moore this off season, I doubt it. That being said, better than Tebow.

Here are a couple of reaction tweets to the Garrard signing.

Orlando Alzugaray ‏ @BigOShow

David Gerrard a Dolphin, WHAT A JOKE!

Marc Kohn ‏ @KohneysKorner

I am speechless...what an utter embarrassment

Jesse Agler ‏ @finsjesse

The Garrard move is about adding depth. Need 80 players on roster for training camp. Have to figure his play will determine his role.

Jim Trotter ‏ @SI_JimTrotter

according to jay glazer, david garrard says he is now a dolphin. another sign miami will go qb in the draft.

Have to say I think the Dolphins fans deserved a little better.
