Rex Grossman QB CLE Jun 26 '133 Comments

CSN Washington believes the Redskins are considering carrying just two quarterbacks this season.

Reporter Rich Tandler takes the presence of four tight ends and kickoff specialist John Potter as a sign that coach Mike Shanahan may be prepared to go forward with only Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins under center. That would be a risky proposition considering RGIII's health, but would leave Rex Grossman as the odd man out. Although he's one of Shanahan's favorite players, Grossman didn't attempt a single pass in 2012.

Redskins re-signed QB Rex Grossman.

At this point, Mike Shanahan might as well give his favorite player a lifetime contract. Grossman's return shouldn't affect the Redskins' expected deal with free agent Pat White. Going on 33 and coming off a season where he didn't attempt a pass, Grossman's roster spot likely isn't guaranteed, but he'll be leaned on for his experience in Shanny's system during OTAs and training camp.

The Redskins "hope and expect" to re-sign free agent Rex Grossman.

The Redskins met with Grossman's rep earlier this week. One of coach Mike Shanahan's all-time favorite players, Grossman should be back to back up Kirk Cousins as Robert Griffin III (knee surgery) continues his rehab.

Free agent Rex Grossman is unsure if he'll be back with the Redskins in 2013.

The Redskins would be well served by having a veteran backup behind Kirk Cousins if Robert Griffin III (ACL) isn't ready for Week 1, but aren't in a hurry to make a decision on Mike Shanahan's teacher's pet. Grossman hasn't been connected to any other teams in free agency.

Redskins declared QB Rex Grossman, WR Dezmon Briscoe, CB Crezdon Butler, S Brandon Meriweather, OLs Josh LeRibeus and Adam Gettis, and NT Chris Baker inactive for Week 1.

Rookie Kirk Cousins will be the No. 2 quarterback. Meriweather is dealing with a knee injury and Baker has an ankle ailment. The rest are healthy.

Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Rex Grossman will have to hold off Kirk Cousins to be the Redskins' backup quarterback coming out of training camp.

Grossman has a significant leg up on Cousins because of his knowledge of the offense and close friendship with OC Kyle Shanahan. The Skins also won't want to enter the season with two rookie quarterbacks. Should Robert Griffin III be injured or struggle out of the chute, Grossman would get the nod over Cousins.

Re-signed on Saturday, Rex Grossman has acknowledged he won't be the Redskins' starting quarterback.

"I'm fully aware they're going to draft a quarterback," Grossman said. "Whatever my role will be, I want to be a part of this team, and turn this thing around." Grossman has been the quarterback the Redskins can't quit, but he will be Robert Griffin III's clipboard holder if all goes according to plan. John Beck is a candidate for release.

Redskins re-signed QB Rex Grossman to a one-year contract.

Grossman's preference was to return to Washington throughout free agency, and it's doubtful any other team would have been willing to give him a contract. He'll serve in valuable role as veteran backup and mentor to projected No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III.

Impending free agent Rex Grossman hopes to return to the Redskins in 2012.

"I really enjoy it here. I really enjoy this offensive system, what they're building here," Grossman said Sunday. "So I'd love for this to be the place where I end up." Grossman had better hope the feeling is mutual, because coming off a 25-turnover season that saw him complete only 57.9 percent of his passes, it's doubtful anyone else will be willing to give him a chance. The Redskins are likely to make a big push to draft a franchise quarterback next spring.
