NFL Rumors: Jeff Garcia to the Philadelphia Eagles?

| by

Jeff Garcia has racked up some memorable moments over the course of his NFL career. Most of those moments came when he was a starter in San Francisco, but he also had some great times as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006. He also started for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

Since then, Garcia has had a tough time trying to hold a job as a quarterback in the NFL. He was brought in to be a backup with the Oakland Raiders a while back, but ultimately he was cut.

He was then brought on to be a back-up for Matt Schaub in Houston, but T.J. Yates stole the show down there.

At 42 years old, it's hard to see anyone bringing him on board now.

Still, he's holding out hope. Garcia recently said that if the Eagles gave him a call, he'd go there in a heartbeat.

“I’m picking up the phone and saying ‘Andy, how much do you want me to pay you so I can come in and get things fired up around there. I’d pay to play, that’s just me. I can be that person who can continue to motivate and inspire and help teach and educate. And if given the opportunity to step on the field, I’m going to give everything I have to find success, no matter how it happens.”

It'd be a good idea for the Eagles to bring him on. What if Michael Vick gets injured again like last year? Mike Kafka isn't all that trustworthy filling in for Vick. Besides, even if everyone stays healthy, Garcia can simply mentor Kafka.
