Miami Dolphins Using David Garrard As Their Starting QB In Minicamp

The Miami Dolphins continue to do strange things with their quarterbacks. Less than two months after selecting Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Dolphins are using David Garrard, their offseason free agent pickup, as the team's starting quarterback in minicamp. Matt Moore is with the second team, and Tannehill is working with the third string.
