Jeff Garcia hasn't played in an NFL game since 2008, but that doesn't mean he's about to give up playing.

In an interview on 94 WIP in Philadelphia that if Andy Reid came calling to offer him a job he'd jump at the chance in a heartbeat.

“I’m picking up the phone and saying ‘Andy, how much do you want me to pay you so I can come in and get things fired up around there?’” Garcia said. “I’d pay to play, that’s just me. I can be that person who can continue to motivate and inspire and help teach and educate. And if given the opportunity to step on the field, I’m going to give everything I have to find success, no matter how it happens.”

At this point I'm not sure how much Garcia has left to give besides leadership. But the Houston Texans did sign him last season to back up T.J. Yates so he might just have something left in the tank. He could go elsewhere and get a shot but he and his wife prefer the Eagles.

“Philly is the team my wife will let me go back and play for,” Garcia told Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano. "She’s the only one who can approve the move.


At 42 he Garcia would be the new age George Blanda, but with the Eagles currently four deep at the quarterback position I don't know if he'll get a shot in Philadelphia.

Carmichael, Harris to bolster secondary depth

HOUSTON There was no time for rookie coddling, hand holding or intensive individual instruction. Post-lockout haste negated all of that. Texans defensive end J.J.

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Football Projections

QB Michael Vick (Philadelphia) I’m projecting a down year across the board for Vick once again. He proved last year that his performance against Washington in 2010 was a fluke.
