Everyone knows that Mark Sanchez will have competition this summer in camp, and the Jets may have their first QB to take him on.

The NY Daily News says that the team has worked out veteran free agent quarterback David Garrard, who was with the Dolphins in camp last year before being cut before the start of the regular season.

Garrard, 35, played in 86 games in nine seasons with the Jaguars before getting released before the 2011 season to pave the way for first-round pick Blaine Gabbert.

New Jets general manager John Idzik made it clear that Sanchez will have to compete for the starting job in new offensive coordinator Marty Morhninweg’s West Coast system.

Garrard has 89 career touchdown passes and a 61.6 career completion percentage. He missed the 2011 season after undergoing back surgery. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last summer before the Dolphins parted ways with him.
