OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia has signed with the Omaha Nighthawks, an expansion team in the United Football League.
The team announced the signing in a statement Wednesday.
Garcia, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, hasn't played in the NFL since the Philadelphia Eagles released him in September.
The 40-year-old Garcia spent five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and also played for Cleveland, Detroit and Tampa Bay during his 11-year career. He had his best season in 2000 with the 49ers, throwing for 4,278 yards and 31 touchdowns.
One of his highlights came with the Eagles in 2006, when he stepped in for an injured Donovan McNabb to lead Philadelphia to a 5-1 record down the stretch, the NFC East title and a playoff victory.
