The Morning Miller On Sports For March 20, 2012 | HS Sports
Jaguars Bite of the Day – Former Jaguars quarterback David Garrard signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins last night. Cut by Jacksonville prior to the start of last season, he’ll compete with Matt Moore for the starting job this season. Having fully recovered from back surgery, Garrard said the team told him bringing in another quarterback was still an option. Miami failed in its attempt to land free agent Peyton Manning. The Dolphins have also hosted quarterbacks Matt Flynn, who signed with Seattle recently, and Alex Smith. Since Denver is willing to trade Tim Tebow, Miami could be an interested organization.
You Should Know – Long-time Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has decided to play with the Denver Broncos. Barring a snag during contract negotiations, Manning will officially be introduced at a press conference today. The four-time MVP called John Elway, the Broncos vice president of football operations, on Monday to tell him the news. Manning also called San Francisco and Tennessee about his intent to play for Denver. Earlier in March, his deal was discussed in the range of five years and $95 million. According to ESPN sources, once Manning is under contract, Denver will try to trade Tim Tebow.
College Football Nugget – Florida State running back Devonta Freeman will miss spring drills because of a lower back injury. As a freshman, he led all Seminole backs with 579 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. With Freeman’s injury, the Noles’ top three rushers from last year are out for the spring. In 2011, the backfield combined for 1,458 yards.
Broadcasting Note – ESPN analyst Bob Knight has gone out of his way to avoid saying Kentucky by name. Awful Announcing looks into it.
Strange Thought of the Day – Could Tim Tebow really beat out Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne? That’s if the Jaguars trade for Tebow.
Tweet of the last 24 hours – @alexmarvez (Alex Marvez, FOXSports.com senior NFL writer) “Someone please tell Peyton Manning about Twitter. He could control the message, end all the media speculation & show respect for his fans.”
Stat(s) of the Day – For the first time, according to the NCAA, one state has four teams into the Sweet Sixteen. Ohio has Ohio State, Ohio University, Cincinnati and Xavier in the Big Dance.
Link of the Day – Despite a position change, Miami Marlins third baseman Hanley Ramirez has his 2009 swing back.
Video of the Day – On Sunday night, Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin was bumped into the front row at the Staples Center. There goes a large popcorn and drink.
Question of the Day – Coming off back surgery and missing all of last season, can David Garrard become the full-time starter for the Miami Dolphins?
