The New York Jets worked out veteran quarterback David Garrard on Thursday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Garrard, who was released by the Dolphins prior to the 2012 season, hasn't played in the NFL since 2010 with the Jaguars.
The Jets are focused on bringing in quarterbacks to challenge incumbent starter Mark Sanchez, with Brady Quinn also being a possibility. Since the Tim Tebow experiment has failed magnificently -- he will soon be released, according to Mehta -- the Jets are left with Sanchez, Greg McElroy, and Matt Simms.
Garrard, 35, had a decent career in Jacksonville, throwing for a shade over 16,000 yards with 89 touchdowns in parts of nine seasons before being released. Since then, Garrard has endured back and arthroscopic knee surgeries.
