JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Part two of the Aaron Garcia experiment didn't last very long as the veteran QB told the Sharks he was leaving the team effective immediately.

The 43-year old QB texted owner Jeff Bouchy early this week and told him that he has "family issues" to deal with back home in California.  It is not known if Garcia is planning on returning to the Sharks in the immediate future.

Garcia started in the Sharks 54-41 loss at Philadelphia last week, throwing for 254 yards and 5 TD's. 

R.J. Archer will start for the Sharks Saturday at home against Portland.  That game can be seen right here on Channel 4.  Kickoff is at 7:15 after a live pregame show.
