Florham Park, NJ (Sports Network) - New York Jets quarterback David Garrard is reportedly set to retire due to lingering knee issues.

No official announcement has been made, but according to a report on NFL.com, Garrard wrote in a text message to NFL.com's Adam Schein, "Having to call it quits. My knee is not holding up. Continuing to swell after practices."

Garrard signed with the Jets in March after missing all of last season with the Miami Dolphins due to knee surgery before the start of the 2012 campaign.

The 35-year-old signal-caller hasn't appeared in a game since 2010 when he started 14 games and threw for a career-high 23 touchdowns as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

All 76 of Garrard's career starts have come with the Jaguars, who selected the New Jersey native in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft.

Garrard's best season came in 2009 when he started 16 games and threw for 3,597 yards and 15 touchdowns while rushing for 323 yards and three scores to earn his first and only Pro Bowl selection.

Over nine seasons in Jacksonville, Garrard compiled 16,003 passing yards, 1,746 rushing yards and 106 combined touchdowns in 86 career games.
