David Garrard: Not Quite the Big Splash Expected in Free Agency

The offseason started with such promise didn’t it? Remember when the Miami Dolphins were favourites to sign Peyton Manning?

How about when they were favourites to sign Matt Flynn if they failed to woo Manning?

Well, Manning chose Denver over Miami. In the Dolphins’ defense, there was nothing they could do to sign him; he preferred other options.

Matt Flynn seemed like Plan B, but he chose Seattle over South Beach. Strange? Yes, but Dolphins’ head coach Joe Philbin knew all there was to know about Flynn. If he didn’t want to pay the money for Flynn, there must have been a reason.

So Miami missed out on the two big prizes for whatever reason, and a visit from Alex Smith came to nothing too. The result?

David Garrard signs a one-year deal to join the Dolphins and challenge Matt Moore for the starting spot.

Hardly the Phins making a splash in free agency, was it?

However, it’s clear that even with the signing of Garrard, nothing changes for Miami. They will obtain a young quarterback at some point this offseason, most likely through the draft.

Here’s a breakdown of potential options in the draft for Miami (with a couple of young NFL quarterbacks thrown into the mix too).
