Card of the Day: 1999 SP Signature Autographs Jason Garrett
Once the NFL coaching carosel started spinning this offseason, Jason Garrett's name popped up.
As the genius behind Dallas' potent offense this season, Garrett was a prime candidate for head coaching jobs in Baltimore and Atlanta.
But today it was announced he is staying offensive coordinator of the Cowboys (perhaps staying to overttake Wade Phillips in the near future).
Many don't know though that Garrett was Troy Aikman's back-up for much of the 1990s. He then bounced around to the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Miami Dolphins. After retiring in 2004, he was quarterbacks coach for the Dolphins for two years before rejoining Dallas.
The SP Signature autograph is probably Garrett's nicest autographed card. It is an on-card autograph and includes his jersey number. Put that on top of a fine Upper Deck photo and you have a great card.
