Podcast: QB David Garrard on retirement

By James Walker

Former New York Jets quarterback David Garrard went on The Herd with Colin Cowherd Thursday to discuss his retirement. Garrard was competing for New York’s starting job but said his knee injury wasn’t going to get better.

"It was swelling on me and it was sore," Garrard said. “I wasn’t able to continue out there with the team.”

Garrard said the practices weren’t rigorous at this point and his knee was having trouble. So he “couldn’t imagine” trying to make it through training camp and the rest of the year with his balky knee. Garrard also provided some insight into the Jets' locker room and the other quarterbacks.
