Garcia Back to Philly
Quarterback Jeff Garcia has agreed to a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to several reports.
Garcia was released by the Oakland Raiders before the season.
He returns to the Eagles, the team for which he played in 2006. Garcia led the Eagles to the playoffs that season with starter Donovan McNabb hurt.
Garcia goes back to Philadelphia with McNabb again injured. He suffered a fractured rib during Sunday's season-opening triumph at Carolina.
McNabb and Eagles Coach Andy Reid left open the possibility Monday of McNabb playing this weekend against the New Orleans Saints. But there have been reports that McNabb is likely to be sidelined for at least one game.
Backup Kevin Kolb perhaps would take over as the starter if McNabb is sidelined.
Quarterback Michael Vick is eligible to play in the Eagles' third game of the season, under the terms of his reinstatement by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Garcia has thrown for 25,537 yards and 161 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He spent the previous two seasons with the Buccaneers.
