Redskins QB Rex Grossman Agrees To Return On A 1-Year Deal
Perennial backup QB Rex Grossman is continuing his lengthy stay in the nation's capital. Grossman has agreed to return to the Redskins on a one-year deal according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
Grossman was the first round pick of the Chicago Bears way back in the 2003 draft and has been with the Redskins for the past three years. He did not throw a pass in 2012 as the third-string QB behind phenom RGIII and rookie Kirk Cousins. The Redskins may soon have four QBs under contract if the rumors of their signing former West Virginia quarterback Pat White prove true.
Grossman's value to the Redskins lies not in his arm but in his mentoring of the young quarterbacks above him and his knowledge and ability to teach Mike Shanahan's offensive system. There is no guarantee he will be on Washington's opening day roster but will be leaned on for his experience in OTAs and training camp. At this point, the Shanahans might as well just give him a lifetime contract.
