Eventually, Garrard was offered the starting job, but he could not rise far because of the multiple times he had to face injury because of a decimated and inept offensive line. As everyone knows the Jaguars has been one of the most incompetent franchises of the NFL, they released Garrard in 2011 and chose Blaine Gabbert as his successor. However, this pick was not suitable at all and crashed almost immediately. He played for the last time in the league in 2010. Though later he signed with two other teams as a free agent, his recurring injuries did not allow him to suit up ever again.
Garrard did not give in to lethargy to take over him after his retirement. To maintain his NFL-fit body, he started his own lineup of fitness centers. He owns quite a number of Retro Fitness gyms and claims that being the head of a business is the greatest feeling ever. The man had to face hardships his entire life, for he had Crohn’s disease. Garrard has been quite active in raising awareness against this disease and the battles that anyone might have to go through. He declares himself to be a proud mentor for children and professional athletes all over America, including NBA player Larry Nance Jr.
Things Were Going Down the Hill
However, this exceptionally talented player could not match up to people's expectations. His once-promising career went downhill because of a number of severe injuries that he had to endure, as well as the changes to the coaching staff. He spent nine years of his career in St. Louis. After leaving St. Louis, Baltimore signed him for a year as a backup, though he never set foot in the field again.
Bulger’s fans were quite disappointed after his retirement. However, the player has a content personal life; he lives on a lush, sprawling farm in Southeast Missouri with his wife and children. He got himself engaged in maintaining the farm almost on a daily basis and later founded the Marc Bulger Foundation. It helps other organizations that help veterans and children financially.
If you are a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars, then you definitely know Garrard as the star of the team! However, he could hold the spot only for a number of seasons and was a Pro Bowler during the 2009 season. In 2002, the East Carolina University drafted him out in the 4th round. He started his career in a bit bumpy way and started on the field as a backup to Byron Leftwich.
Beginning his time as a backup, he initially thought that luck did not favor him, but little did he know how injury-prone Leftwich was! The world got acquainted with the talents of Garrard on multiple occasions when Leftwich got injured, and he had to play instead of Leftwich season after season.
The Washington Redskins, while representing the NFC East, have been a perennial dumpster fire. The Redskins have such a bad reputation that even many of the former players do not fail to criticize it. This mainly happened due to their poor drafts and how alarmingly fast they used to change their coaches.
After such a stand, when the Redskins, in 2005, drafted Auburn quarterback Campbell 25th overall, everyone got their spirits lifted quite obviously! People pinned their hopes on Campbell since he had just led Auburn to a perfect season in the SEC and had achieved a Sugar Bowl victory over Virginia Tech. When the Redskins drafted him, the management saw a ray of hope for their new franchise quarterback!
Three Teams In Three Years
Campbell was quite efficient in his plays but could never set a winning record for Washington. With a series of changes in his life, his career met a downfall. He had to deal with so many varieties of coaching and personnel changes, along with a slew of injuries, that totally altered his career in Washington. When in 2010 he was traded to Oakland, people thought that Campbell’s career would see an upliftment now, but even then, injuries marred a promising season. He played two seasons for the Black and Silver and then changed three teams in three years before calling it quits altogether.
However, being a sportsperson, Campbell shifted to golf after retiring from football. He lives in Atlanta now and is a quarterback coach (as a side gig) for a local high school team. It has been often seen that Campbell has quite frequently advised the aspiring players to avoid playing for Washington by any means.
