So he's had 3 years to recover. So what? You should care how smart and how big of an arm he has. if he's going to be a back up, that matters. The smarter he is, the more information he can process. Besides, Cam is our starter. It's not like Garrard is going to come in and beat Cam for the Job. Jimmy Clausen isn't even a reliable back up, or decent for that matter. He's probably gone, with Anderson as well, since he's lobbying for Cleveland now.
He'd be a #2 here if he comes in with Cam and Jimmy (If he's still here). If you're saying his familiarity with the system is non-existing. You'd be right. But that's what OTA's, Mini-Camp, Preseason are for. All that time to spend in the system and soak it in. He'd be fine. Besides, again I say, he's a BACK UP. That's all you'd want him to do. To come in ala Anderson in case Cam goes down for a series or a game or two and feel confident that he can take the load for that allotted time.
Of course the league minimum would be what you'd throw at him. With 3 years removed from the NFL. I think he'd want money regardless of the price. Especially if he's probably just going to be on the bench collecting a Paycheck. Much like Anderson has done the past 2 years.
I wouldn't mind Garrard at all. Jason Campbell on the other hand...eh.. I'm not too sure of.
I think the "if" he is healthy is too much. And Jason Campbell is an Auburn alum. YAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!
