NFL Free Agency 2012: QB David Garrard Expected To Visit St. Louis

When the St. Louis Rams traded the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to the Washington Redskins for three first round picks, the Rams gave starting quarterback Sam Bradford a vote of confidence. However, St. Louis is still in the market for a QB to backup Bradford, and today the Florida Times-Union reports former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard is expected to make a visit to the Rams in the coming days.

Garrard is visiting the Dolphins on Monday and will reportedly likely make St. Louis his next stop.

Garrard did not play in 2011 after surprisingly getting cut by the Jaguars in training camp last season. From Jacksonville.com, here's the latest update on the quarterback's health.

Garrard had surgery to repair a herniate disc in October after severe pain in his legs related to the injury. He visited with the Dolphins before having the surgery -- before he even knew he needed the surgery. Garrard was scheduled to visit with Oakland in the fall and canceled the visit because of his need for surgery.
