 for  3,597 yards  and 15  touchdowns  while rushing  for 323  yards and  three
 scores to earn his first and only Pro Bowl selection.
 Over  nine seasons  in Jacksonville,  Garrard compiled  16,003 passing  yards,
 1,746 rushing yards and 106 combined touchdowns in 86 career games.
 Quinn was the club's No. 3 QB and had been inactive for six games this season.

 spent his first  three seasons with the Browns. He also spent two seasons with
 Denver and last year appeared in 10 games with eight starts for Kansas City.
