Jaguars Release Starting QB David Garrard Five Days Before Opener

With less than one week to go before they play the Tennessee Titans to open the 2011 season, the Jacksonville Jaguars have told QB David Garrard that they are planning on releasing him.

This move will make Luke McCown the starter for the opener against the Titans. This move is very similar to the move the team made in 2007 when they released incumbent QB Byron Leftwich and decided to go with David Garrard at QB. This also means that Blaine Gabbert will now be the backup at QB, and may now make it easier for him to get the starter role sooner in the season.

This will definitely make the Jaguars season opener a whole lot more interesting, because if McCown struggles will Jack Del Rio go to Gabbert to see if he can make any sort of impact, or will he let McCown try and right the ship, I guess we will all have to wait, watch and see what happens.
