I just received a press release that’s not really relevant to the current NFC South. But it’s kind of interesting, on many levels.
The Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League are going to hold a press conference in Council Bluffs, Iowa Wednesday night. There, Omaha coach Jeff Jagodzinski will announce he’s signed quarterback Jeff Garcia.
For those with short memories, Garcia and Jagodzinski had stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, although Garcia’s stint was a bit longer than Jagodzinski’s. Garcia, now 40, was a fairly competent quarterback for the Buccaneers for two seasons.
Jagodzinski joined the Buccaneers after Garcia left and didn’t last long. Raheem Morris hired Jagodzinski to be the offensive coordinator, but was fired before the season even started.
Not sure the Nighthawks are ready to cough up huge salaries, but my UFL sources tell me they’ve had some talks with Scott Milanovich, Casey Weldon, Jim Pyne, Marcus Jones and Tyji Armstrong.
