Why Did The Jags Cut David Garrard?

 Why did the Jacksonville Jaguars cut starting quarterback David Garrard just days before the 2011 season opener, and weeks after endorsing him as their starter? 

David was a pro bowler in 2009, and is still an above average starting NFL QB.

The Jags made a similar move in 2007 when they claimed Byron Leftwich was their starting QB, only to cut him days before the season opener, handing the starting gig to Garrard. Jacksonville drafted Blaine Gabbert 10th overall back in April, but want to work him along slowly. That means Luke McCown, who had only 18 pass attempts in the preseason, will start at QB for the Jaguars when they open up in Tennessee against the division rival Titans.

Here is more on the story from Doug Farrar of the Yahoo! sports Shutdown Corner.
