Last we heard from former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia, he was trying to help JaMarcus Russell make a comeback in the league. That didn't work out, though, so now it sounds like Garcia is attempting to help another former player get back into the NFL. That player? None other than…himself.
Yes, that's right, folks. Despite the fact that he's 43 now, Garcia says he reached out to the Browns recently and told them that he would be interested in coming in and working out for them, if they are interested. He hasn't heard anything back from them yet. But he's still holding out hope for one last shot in the NFL.
"It's funny," he said during a radio interview with WKRK-FM in Cleveland, "I actually reached out to the Browns and said, 'Hey, if you need a guy to come in, work me out, take a look.' I don't know if people want me back in Cleveland, but I'm open to it."
At this point, the Browns should be open to it, too. Their current quarterback Brandon Weeden is not getting the job done, and their fan base is getting frustrated. So why not giving Garcia a shot? At the very least, it'll give us a reason to tune into a Browns game for a week. Give the guy a call back, Cleveland!
