NFL via Getty Images(MIAMI) -- The Dolphins released Pro Bowl quarterback David Garrard on Tuesday, leaving Matt Moore as their backup.  Miami will begin the season with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill under center.

The 34-year-old Garrard signed with the Dolphins last March and was installed as their starting quarterback. During the pre-season, Garrard went down with a left knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery.

The Dolphins selected Tannehill out of Texas A&M with the eighth overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.
