Grossman Wants to Help Tutor Rookie QB

Posted Mar 23, 2012

Rex Grossman is well aware that the Redskins may draft a quarterback in the NFL Draft next month. That didn’t deter him from re-signing with the team for another season.


Rex Grossman is well aware that the Redskins may draft a quarterback in the NFL Draft this offseason.

That didn’t deter him from re-signing with the team for another season.

He talked with Redskins Broadcast Network’s Larry Michael on Comcast SportsNet’s “Redskins Nation” on Thursday, one day after officially signing his contract.

“I’m excited,” Grossman said. “I think the first couple of years didn’t go the way we planned. I’m glad to be back for another season to get this thing right.”

Grossman, 31, started 13 games for the 5-11 Redskins last season. He threw for 3,151 yards and 16 touchdowns but also had 20 interceptions and five lost fumbles. His QB rating was 72.4, ranked 28th in the league.

With the Redskins in position to draft an elite quarterback prospect with the second overall pick in the draft, Grossman could be asked to step into a mentorship role.

He could be asked to groom the young quarterback, giving guidance on the Redskins’ offense and offering tips on breaking down opponents.

“The biggest thing is, I’m going to be a good teammate,” he said. “My main goal is to be there for whatever quarterback they draft – just be there for him in the quarterback room. For him to be able to ask questions if he doesn’t want to ask the coaches, I want to be provide some answers if he’s confused about something.

“I want to help him out with whatever it is, whether it’s defenses or exactly how our offense relates to that defense, or how he should go about things.

“The main goal of a rookie quarterback is to see how he fits in as a professional, and that player is going to have to it on his own, mostly. But I’ll be there to help him out any way I can.”

Having played in Kyle Shanahan’s offense the last four seasons, including 2009 in Houston, Grossman believes he is already well-prepared to lead the Redskins should the rookie quarterback not be ready for Week 1 or experience a setback.

“I’m always focused on getting better as a quarterback, physically and mentally, and working on the things I need to work on,” Grossman said. “If I’m out there playing, I want to play at an extremely high level to allow our team to win, work on the turnovers and continue to do the things I do well.”

Grossman said he was excited to see the Redskins upgraded the wide receiver corps this offseason.

The team added Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, and Josh Morgan, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, in the first week of free agency. They join Jabar Gaffney, Santana Moss, Anthony Armstrong, Leonard Hankerson and Niles Paul, among others.

“Any time you add playmakers at the skill position, it can only help,” Grossman said of the Garcon and Morgan signings. “From what I hear, those guys are extremely explosive and can run after the catch.

"Add them to the guys we have now, we have a pretty good wide receiver corps. And that’s pretty exciting.”
