Those who decided to make a profession out of sports can be broadly categorized into two groups – the people who attained nothing of huge significance and faded into obscurity after retirement and those who remained relevant, several years after their remarkable accomplishments are rarely remembered. Of course, Jeff Garcia belongs to the latter league.
The ex-American and Canadian football quarterback born on the 24th of February, 1970 had a career that spanned almost two decades. Beginning with Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in 1994, Jeff moved on to the American National Football League’s (NFL) San Francisco 49ers in 1999. He left the 49ers after the 2003 NFL season and had a brief stint with the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, and Philadelphia Eagles between 2004 and 2006. The following year, the quarterback joined the Tampa Bay Buccanneers where he spent the 2007 and 2008 NLF seasons before having another brief spell with the Oakland Raiders, The Eagles, Omaha Nighthawks, and Houston Texans; this was between 2009 and 2011.
Check the records, you will find that this California-born star has several exceptional star performances that set him apart from many of his kinds. Apart from being one of the ten quarterback players who attained consecutive thirty touchdown passes in NFL history, Jeff recorded 4 Pro Bowl appearances; consecutively from 2000 to 2002 and again in 2007. There are more to his career attainments but that would be a tale for another day. Let’s concern ourselves with his wife Carmella Decesare, the following are the things you need to know about her.
