In an interview with 98.7 ESPN New York, Jets QB David Garrard fielded the following question:
Did the Jets assure you that you had a fair chance at being the starting quarterback?
“When I talked to everybody, I was given — without a doubt — the idea that I had every shot to be the starting quarterback. I took them at face value. I took them as genuine when they were telling me that. I didn’t think they were telling me the Jets were taking me in to help everybody else out. I felt like they were being very sincere."
This is obviously bad news for Mark Sanchez, but neither player is even a fantasy QB2 given the current state of the Jets.
