After David Garrard's Release, Where Will He Go Next?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a surprising move releasing QB David Garrard and deciding to go with QB Luke McCown as the starting quarterback to open the 2011 season. Garrard has been the Jaguars starting quarterback for the last four years so he'll attract some interest on the open market.

The only question is where he'll go next. Is he a backup someplace? Does he wait for an injury and then sign? 

If I were Garrard, I'd find the best opportunity to play. Whether that's as a backup someplace with a shaky quarterback situation or a spot where an injury could occur.

I'm not saying it'll happen but I could see the Miami Dolphins being interested. QB Chad Henne hasn't inspired the fan base there and Garrard could be considered an upgrade. 

I could also see the Washington Redskins as a team that should be interested. They're starting...Rex Grossman.

Another place where I would think about if I were Garrard is the Detroit Lions. He'd clearly be a backup there but you have to consider QB Matthew Stafford's injury history. Plus, the Lions offense has a ton of weapons.

If I'm Garrard, I find the place where I'm most likely to play. Sign a short-term deal and hit the market again in 2012 as one of the top quarterbacks available.
