Redskins Re-sign Grossman

Posted Mar 21, 2012

Rex Grossman, a nine-year veteran, rejoins a quarterback group that includes John Beck and Jonathan Crompton. The Redskins are expected to address the quarterback position in the NFL Draft as well.


The Redskins have re-signed quarterback Rex Grossman, the team announced on Wednesday.

Grossman, a nine-year NFL veteran, rejoins a quarterback group that includes John Beck and Jonathan Crompton, the same trio as last year.

The Redskins are expected to address the quarterback position in the April 26-28 NFL Draft, however.

Last year, Grossman started 13 games for the Redskins. He had a solid start to the season, leading the Redskins to a 3-1 mark at the quarter-point. Then he was benched for backup John Beck after a four-interception game against Philadelphia.

After a sudden bout with pneumonia, he reclaimed his starting job four weeks later, and closed out the season by playing well despite a 2-10 finish.

Overall, Grossman completed 265-of-458 passes for 3,151 yards and 16 touchdowns but also had 20 interceptions and five lost fumbles. He was sacked 25 times in 13 games.

His QB rating was 72.4, ranked 28th in the league.

Grossman returns for his third season in Washington. He originally joined the Redskins as a free agent in March 2010.

Prior to a 2009 stint in Houston, Grossman played his first six NFL seasons with Chicago, the team that selected him in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft.

In 2006, Grossman led the Bears to a 13-3 record and their first Super Bowl appearance since 1985. That season, he started all 16 regular season games and completed 262-of-480 passes for 3,193 yards, 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He also started all three postseason contests, including Super Bowl XLI.
