Garrard believes he can win job: David Garrard was brought in to compete with Mark Sanchez for the New York Jets starting quarterback job. It’s a competition the veteran believes he can win — he said as much in a radio interview Thursday. That competition could get tougher if the Jets bring in the recently-released Kevin Kolb as many anticipate. Of that trio, Garrard is the most accomplished … but he’s also gone the longest without taking a starting snap. It’s a mystery as to exactly what the Jets are doing — but it’s kind of
amusing amazing to watch.
Latest Cruz news is no news: The New York Giants and Victor Cruz remain at a standstill on the receiver’s contract status. The team offered the wideout a first-round tender, but Cruz could still negotiate a long-term deal with the team. Either way, with the number of top-level free agent receivers on the free agent market dwindling, teams could turn their attention to the man from UMass. It would be a bit of a surprise if he’s not back with Big Blue next season, but stranger things have happened.
Packers could consider RB rotation: After missing out on Steven Jackson in free agency, the Green Bay Packers still have questions to answer at running back. However, DuJuan Harris could be one piece of the puzzle. The young back became a larger part of Green Bay’s offense late in the 2012 season, peaking with a 70-yard performance against the Vikings in the regular-season finale. There’s no doubt that Harris would have help, whether it’s by a free agent like Ahmad Bradshaw or Michael Turner or if it comes through the draft. Regardless, if Harris is truly in the mix to see significant carries in 2013, he has deep sleeper potential.
