View Full Version : Football David Garrard to begin making visits, would consider Lions

From PFT.

With Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton receiving interest from the Rams and Jets, respectively, the Lions are currently without a backup quarterback for Matthew Stafford.

Free agent David Garrard could be an option. Garrard’s agent told MLive.com’s Anwar Richardson that his client plans to start arranging free agent visits on Thursday, and the Lions are among the teams Garrard is considering.

“If the Lions are interested in David’s services, we will listen,” agent Al Irby said. “… Once Peyton [Manning] makes a decision, based on recent activity, David will be a hot quarterback.”

Garrard, who has started 76 career games, sat out all of last season while rehabbing a bad back. He declared himself 100 percent recovered in late February, and should resurface this year as one of the top backup quarterback candidates available on the free agent market.

I'd take him as competition for Cassel. I'd take Hasselbeck as well (if the Titans sign Manning).

I think I'd slip that in the contract somewhere.

I actually like David Garrard. If we could swap him for Cassel, I'd absolutely take that.

I'd swap Cassel for Midnight Vulture (the fake one) at this point.

Yep. Anybody but Cassel right now.

Only reason Cassel should start this season is if we're looking ahead to next season and want to do poorly enough to ensure we draft Barkley or something. Which is a good enough reason, but this team would probably end up farting its way to 7-9 or some shit.

we let Orton go because it would put heat on Cassel, we'd all be demanding he start. It would be the same with Garrard, not gonna happen.

It's obvious Pioli isn't gonna give up on Cassel. We let Orton go because it would be heat on Cassel and it's gonna be Cassel/Stanzi and an undrafted free agent for our QB depth chart next season.

Come on... At least bring in a young QB who has no chance of any meaningful competition with Cassel, not some old broken down never-was...

There aren't any QBs in the draft that have any interest for us. They can't start now to give competition to Cassel. I don't see any that I would even consider that much of an upgrade over Stanzi, who at least has a year in the system. We can't get stuck with another Palko situation. Just admit it, Pioli has set it up to get Cassel an extention after this year.

Fits the 2012 FA MO.....requirements:
#1 - Missed a minimum of 1/2 the 2011 season with serious injury. CHECK.
#2. Can be had for little of nothing. CHECK


Bring him in.

So should the Chiefs. Might be the only way for the Hunts to get a championship.

Garrard is really not that bad a QB...certainly better than Castle.

Yep. Not what I wanted but at this point I'll take him. He could beat out Cassel.

no thank you. I'd just as soon suffer with Cassel and see what Stanzi has if he gets hurt, than suffer with Cassel and know what Gerard has if Cassel gets hurt

Personally I don't see them bringing any one in who they consider to be better than Stanzi. All the talk of him being their developmental player, I see them going with him at the backup and either an undrafted qb or a late pick.

They want stanzi to take over for Cassel. It's the best of both worlds, Pioli isn't forced to eat crow, because he drafted Stanzi.

Pioli didn't let Orton go. Orton ran from KC as fast as he could and signed with the first team that he could. This was not the sign of a guy that was negotiating to stay with the Chiefs.
