Originally written June 29, 2012 on Down and Distance:
According to ESPN.com’s James Walker, the former Jacksonville starter, David Garrard, worked with the first team at Dolphins minicamp Tuesday, with Matt Moore working with the second team. First-round pick Ryan Tannehill was with the third team. On Sportscenter Friday, Adam Schefter reported that Garrard’s play this spring has put him ahead of Matt Moore and Ryan Tannehill as the team heads towards training camp. Matt Moore was the team’s starter last year and led the team to a 6-10 record and Ryan Tannehill was drafted 8th overall in this year’s draft. “The more you hear, the more it sounds like David Garrard has really taken this opportunity to emerge as the favorite to be the starting quarterback down in Miami,” said Schefter. “Very impressive, adept, good footwork. Matt Moore’s been good, Ryan Tannehill’s been good, but David Garrard has looked the most comfortable of any of the quarterbacks.” Garrard is coming off of a back injury and has not played an NFL game since December 26 2011. It is rather impressive that he is currently leading the Dolphins quarterback competition. However, there is still plenty of time before the start of the regular season. If Garrard wants the starting job he has to prove to the Dolphins that he is the starter to lead them to victory. Personally, I think the Dolphins should stick with Ryan Tannehill. With their current roster they are not playoff contenders and should be looking towards the future. Allowing Tannehill more time on the field will give him more experience and improve the team for the future. This will be just one of the many interesting training camp battles we will have to keep our eye on as the season rolls closer. For more news: Follow us on twitter: @DownAndDistance
