Quarterback Tim Couch, whose career appeared to be over after undergoing two major shoulder surgeries, is scheduled to work out for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, sources said. The Atlanta Falcons also have called to set up a workout with Couch.
Couch, the No. 1 pick of the 1999 draft when he was taken by the Cleveland Browns, is trying to get back into the NFL after three years out of the league. He has been working out near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and recently directed his agents to contact NFL teams to let them know he is healthy and prepared to play again. He turns 30 next Tuesday.
The Browns released Couch after the 2003 season and he developed shoulder problems during training camp with the Green Bay Packers in 2004. The Packers cut him before the 2004 season started and Couch subsequently underwent two shoulder surgeries, the last in July 2006.
Attempts to reach Couch for immediate comment were unsuccessful.
