The one-time Pro Bowler issued some statements to the Associated Press, indicating that he's excited to get back in the league and compete for a starting job.

Via Associated Press:

"They didn't say for sure they were bringing another guy in, but they said it's a possibility, whether in the draft or whatever," Garrard said in a phone interview.

[...]

"It's going to be a great competition, and I'm all about that," Garrard said. "I'm going to do my best to make sure it's me on opening day."

According to reports, he signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins, who also released safety Yeremiah Bell to create cap space for another potential quarterback signing.
