So.. if you thought things were pretty bad in Browns Town you aren’t far off.
Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Jeff Garcia, in an interview with 92.3 The Fan, told hosts Bull and Fox that he had reached out to the Browns organization about coming back to play quarterback for the team. He apparently told the Browns brass, he is ready to lace them up again and play quarterback for the team.
As you could all imagine, the Browns front office wasn’t too keen on the idea. According to 92.3 The Fan, the Browns told Garcia they were just going to move forward with Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, as the backup.
What made the 43-year-old former Browns quarterback think he could make a comeback two years into retirement is beyond me. Garcia’s last full season was in 2008, when he played in 11 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, compiling 2,712 passing yards, 12 Tds and 6 Ints.
For a guy who hasn’t seen game action since 2008 , wanting to make a comeback at his age is a pretty farfetched idea. Today’s NFL is no place for a 43-year-old running quarterback who hasn’t been on the field in a meaningful game in five years.
With all this being said, it really shows you the state of the Browns quarterback position for a guy like Garcia to want to come out of retirement at 43 years old because he thinks he is a better option than what we have on the roster now.
So with that, take a look below and let us know what you’re thinking!!!
