Garcia asks Browns for QB tryout

CLEVELAND

Here’s a new wrinkle in the Browns’ curious quarterback conundrum: Former NFL starter Jeff Garcia called and offered his services.

Garcia, who started 10 games for Cleveland in 2004, told 92.3 The Fan on Tuesday that he contacted the Browns and asked for a tryout. The 43-year-old Garcia hasn’t started an NFL game in five years, but he informed the Browns he would love a chance to make their team.

“I actually reached out to the Browns and said, ‘Hey, if you need a guy to come in, work me out, take a look,”’ Garcia said. “I don’t know if people want me back in Cleveland, but I’m open to the opportunity.”

Garcia, who went 3-7 in his stint as a starter in Cleveland, said the Browns declined his offer.

The Browns have had quarterback issues all season. Starter Brandon Weeden got hurt and was replaced by Brian Hoyer, who won two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury.
