A product of East Carolina, David Garrard was drafted in the 4th Round of 2002, and it was the intent for him to back up Mark Brunell. That lasted a year, as Jacksonville drafted Byron Leftwich, and he backed him up until he won his job during the 2006 season. Garrard would take the Jags to the 2007 playoffs, and in 2009, he would be named to his only Pro Bowl. That would be the highlight of his career, as he only played two more years with the Jaguars.
Garrard was released a week before the 2011 Season, and he elected to get surgery on his herniated disc. He would be signed by Miami before 2012, but he needed knee surgery and was released before he could play. He would attempt another comeback with the New York Jets, but he never played a down for them either. This would make his entire pro career wearing the green of Jacksonville.
Overall, he would throw for 16,003 Yards with 89 Touchdown Passes.
