I generally take tweets from unconfirmed accounts and random people with a grain of salt, but throughout the off-season user “incarceratedbob” has generally been dead on about free agency news.
According to his tweet, the Seahawks are one of four serious suitors for Garrards services along with the 49ers, Dolphins, and Redskins:
“@incarceratedbob Source: David Garrard has been contacted by 6 NFL teams (Dolphins/49ers/Seahawks/Redskins) the most serious at this time”
That list makes a ton of sense, Garrard would be an upgrade at quarterback for every one of those teams.
I will keep things updated on this throughout the day, including the merit of this twitter rumor. With as many as six teams interested in his services, look for something to maybe get done within the next 24-48 hours.
Pete Carroll has addressed the David Garrard issue stating that the team is set with Tarvaris Jackson and the current quarterback situation
The fact that Jackson was also named an offensive captain today pretty much cements that.
Until Jesus rescues this offense, consider the Seahawks one of those teams feeling lucky.
