NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says David Garrard plans to retire because of lingering knee issues, leaving the New York Jets one less quarterback in their open competition.

The 35-year-old Garrard was signed in March to provide veteran competition for Mark Sanchez. But Garrard, who hadn't played in a regular-season game in the NFL since 2010 because of injuries, plans to step away because of knee troubles.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced Garrard's decision.

The former Jacksonville Jaguars star was cut by the Miami Dolphins last summer after he needed arthroscopic surgery on his ailing left knee. Garrard was expected to be in the mix for the Jets' starting job, along with Sanchez and second-round pick Geno Smith.
