Flynn isnt going to cost a top pick like alex smith did. We are taking about a 5th round pick for a guy who is tailor made for the WCO and is only 27 years old.
Why even bother with garrard, we know his ceiling and its low. If we are going to pay a 34 year old QB to be mediocore for us, I would rather play sanchez every game or even mcelroy.
It is a MUCH better risk reward to go after a QB who could turn into a top 15 guy for the next 6 years.
David Garrard, no game action in 2 years and hes a good guy to bring in...unreal.
Why because he was injured, he is healthy now. If you want Flynn for your long range qb-fine. 11 mill over 2 years with no SB is a reasonable pick up. But remember you will have to clear another 5 mill of cap room for him and give up a pick, but who knows maybe he will do a deal and push some of the cap hit into next year.
IMO Garrard was the guy for a transition, no for the future.
