David Garrard could be the early leader in the battle for the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback job.
ESPN's Adam Schefter, speaking on SportsCenter (via Rotoworld) has looked good running new coach Joe Philbin's system and could have the edge over incumbent Matt Moore and first-round pick Ryan Tannehill, at least for the time being.
"The more you hear, the more it sounds like David Garrard has really taken this opportunity to emerge as the favorite to be the starting quarterback down in Miami," said Schefter. "Very impressive, adept, good footwork. Matt Moore's been good, Ryan Tannehill's been good, but David Garrard has looked the most comfortable of any of the quarterbacks."
Garrard missed all of last year after being released by Jacksonville and then undergoing back surgery. So if he comes back and claims the job going into the regular season, it will be a rather remarkable comeback for the former East Carolina star.
