QB Garrard rejoins Jets

The SportsXchange

David Garrard re-signed with the New York Jets, who placed the quarterback on the exempt list while he gets back up to speed.

Garrard left the team in March because of chronic knee issues. The Jets have two weeks to add Garrard to the 53-man roster or release him.

"I was able to take the whole summer off and let my body heal," Garrard said, according to the Jets' official website. "I started training a couple of months ago and my knee feels great.

"I'm sitting at home, watching games thinking, 'Why am I at home? Why I am doing this to myself? I didn't want to have any regrets one day."

Brady Quinn and Matt Simms are rookie starter Geno Smith's backups.
