Grossman Still Looking For A Gig

So with a first-round pick from the 2006 draft the quarterback of the present/future in Chicago, a first-round pick from the 2003 draft undoubtedly is yet another of the Bears quarterbacks of the past.
Rex Grossman has been an unrestricted free agent since February 27, and by all accounts he has generated no real interest in his services.
But he recently has changed agents, from Eugene Parker to Drew Rosenhaus, and Rosenhaus says that he aggressively is marketing Grossman.
“There is interest and I should get him a deal soon,” Rosenhaus told us via text message today.
Rosenhaus declined to identify the interested teams, just as he did when receiver Terrell Owens was on the market.  The agent’s silence prompted some league insiders to conclude that there were no interested teams.
And, the next day, Owens signed with the Bills.

    Rex Grossman WILL NEVER TAKE A SNAP IN THE NFL AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He’ll join the ranks of other NFL QB’s that have come to Chicago and never done anything but flip burgers for the rest of their life (except Jim Miller who has a ring for holding a clipboard for the Pats).
    You’re the sole reason the Bears have only one championship in the last 24 years!!!!!!!!!!

    Act now or you might miss out…

  5. BobSandersWillKillYou says: Apr 8, 2009 3:07 PM

    Rex will still be looking for a gig until the lions have a few QBs injured half way through the season and there’s no other choice

    Florio’s getting text msg’s from Drew Rosenhaus….dam…que the Jefferson’s theme song…..’movin on up’…dum dum dum

    If not Mickey D’s is hiring. Although he would definitely have to toss fries better than he does footballs.

    Ill take him over Stafford!!! draft Curry

  9. Campy5 says: Apr 8, 2009 3:17 PM

    Grossman would be nice for the Toronto Argonauts

  10. PackAttack says: Apr 8, 2009 3:19 PM

    Met Life is hiring.

  11. Tr3pidation says: Apr 8, 2009 3:19 PM

    Probably the 49ers. Their logo will go with how many turnovers he’s expected to have.

  12. Rossy P says: Apr 8, 2009 3:23 PM

    Good luck, this guy really sucks!

  13. Kevin from Philly says: Apr 8, 2009 3:27 PM

    Grossman is the QB of the Future? Some future. Maybe Rosenhaus should use the Florio marketing tactic: “Don’t sign my client”.

  14. PAJOI34 says: Apr 8, 2009 3:34 PM

    Isn’t “aggressive marketing” another term for fraud?

  15. udamright says: Apr 8, 2009 3:36 PM

    So much for Lovie’s quote, “Rex Grossman is our quarterback.”

  16. coltsfaninthepeg says: Apr 8, 2009 3:37 PM

    Rex may not have panned out in Chi-Town, but he still should get another shot. He QBed an offense with mediocre supporting talent to the Superbowl a couple of years ago. Give him a decent set of receivers and he likely would be a Hasselbeck kind of QB–rarely flashy, but good enough to win you some games.

  17. rgott28 says: Apr 8, 2009 3:40 PM

    They should change Grossman’s name to “The Patrick Ramsey of the Future.” Bet you he ends up either in Tampa or J E T S.

  18. Kyle Boller says: Apr 8, 2009 3:43 PM

    Hahahahahaha, what a bust!

  19. delakern says: Apr 8, 2009 3:48 PM

    grossman is better than jason campbell

  20. pack-in-brazil says: Apr 8, 2009 3:49 PM

    Yes, of course, there should be a PLETHORA of interest!!
    I´m a glass half full guy and I guess Grossman could be one of the top 10 passers this season for any team playing…………… in the CFL!!
    I felt sorry for Chicago for having such a bad QB for so long… Ok, maybe I didn´t!!!
    No worries… Cutler or Grossman… Bears still suck!

  21. garyofferdahl says: Apr 8, 2009 3:49 PM

    If Jon Gruden were still coaching, he just simply could not have resisted….

  22. 1stngoal says: Apr 8, 2009 3:50 PM

    There’s interest.He probably won’t get signed by anyone until after the draft or before training camps rev up…

  23. KILLER FINS FAN says: Apr 8, 2009 3:54 PM

    Well no duh!!! it is because he SUCKS!!!

  24. JustPlayFootball says: Apr 8, 2009 3:59 PM

    Rex will settle in as a backup somewhere. Considering how much ridicule he has suffered, he has played in some pretty big games. The 2000 SEC Championship Game, the 2001 Sugar Bowl, the 2002 Orange Bowl, 2003 Outback Bowl, NFL playoff games in 2005 & 2006 and finally the Super Bowl. Not a bad career and soon he will get game checks for holding a clipboad.

  25. Florida Funk says: Apr 8, 2009 4:00 PM

    I guess he had too many whip-it balloons.
    Maybe he can go back to UF and slang some yah-yo just like the old days.

  26. DJSlyBri says: Apr 8, 2009 4:04 PM

    Grossman is a Super Bowl QB. Call me when Cutler, Culpepper, Garcia, Cassell, Brees, or Romo get to one. I would sign Grossman to a 5 year, $100 million dollar deal if I were still GM.
    Signed,
    Matt Millen

    You people are dilusional. Maybe this guy isn’t a number 1 quarterback in the NFL, but I wouldn’t mind him holding a clipboard on my team. He’s a guy that might be able to get you through a game or two if your quarterback goes down… isn’t that essentially what you want to get out of a backup?

  28. abbazabba says: Apr 8, 2009 4:07 PM

    you gotta feel at least a little bad for anyone who has been forced to be part of Chicagos offense. One can only hope Cutler can break the cycle.

  29. the real deal says: Apr 8, 2009 4:16 PM

    i’d sign rex, he is up and down. remember when bears fans loved him at the beginning of the superbowl run season. a solid back up.. Lets face the facts, the bears have never had an offense that could be qb happy in years

  30. Slow Joe says: Apr 8, 2009 4:18 PM

    Dude, tell us Rosenhaus’ phone number.

  31. marcduke says: Apr 8, 2009 4:24 PM

    Hey, my kid’s Pop Warner team is looking for a QB – maybe that’s why my call phone is “blowin’ up” with calls from a Miami area code.
    By the way, Drew, the Newport (Tiny-Mite) Tigers are going to take a pass on your client.

  32. cantgetenough says: Apr 8, 2009 4:25 PM

    Hard to believe a guy that got beaten by Kyle Orton can’t find a gig.

  33. Campy5 says: Apr 8, 2009 4:34 PM

    Rextasy

  34. screaming sheep says: Apr 8, 2009 5:09 PM

    So you and little Drew are texting each other. Is he your BFF(best friend forever) thanks Martellus.
