Default Tim Couch Signs With Jaguars



By MARK LONG, AP Sports Writer
July 29, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Former No. 1 draft pick Tim Couch signed a two-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, getting a chance to revive his career as a backup to quarterback Byron Leftwich.

Couch, the top pick by Cleveland in 1999, hasn't played a down in the NFL since the 2004 preseason.

But Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio wanted to take a look at the former Kentucky star who had shoulder surgery last year. The Jaguars needed another quarterback in training camp because third-stringer Quinn Gray has an ankle injury and is on the physically unable to perform list.

The Jaguars also have backup David Garrard and undrafted rookie Lester Ricard.

Scott Eyster from Delta State and Sam Hollenbach from Maryland worked out alongside Couch on Friday, and the Jaguars struck a deal with Couch following a physical.

His five years in Cleveland were filled with disappointment. He was sacked often, booed regularly and plagued by elbow trouble.

After leaving the Browns, Couch signed a one-year deal with Green Bay to be Brett Favre's backup. The Packers didn't work out Couch before signing him to a contract that included a $625,000 bonus, and it seemed to backfire.

Couch was bothered by a sore throwing arm, struggled to grasp the West Coast offense and couldn't even unseat third-string quarterback Craig Nall.

Couch completed 11 of 34 passes for 96 yards with no touchdowns in three preseason games and was cut just before the 2004 season.

He worked out for Chicago and Cincinnati in 2005, but neither team signed him. He worked out for Tennessee, Miami, Pittsburgh and Houston last year.

Rehabbing from a bum shoulder due to the number of times he was pile-drived into the turf behind the Browns O-line.

He was a great college quarterback. I'd like to see him do well somewhere. I mean, Cleveland isn't exactly a great place to try and make a career.

Anybody looking for a 5'9," 160 lb backup QB with a noodle arm? I can suck just as bad as Couch does.

I was a big Couch fan.If he had something else than cardboard cutouts for an offensive line in Cleveland,I think he could have been a very good QB.

I'd love to see him lake Lead Foot Leftwitch's job though,that'd be hillarious.
