Mike Shanahan has acquired a new quarterback, albeit one who appeared in just one NFL game in 2009.
The Redskins reached an agreement this morning with former Bears and Texans quarterback Rex Grossman on a one-year deal. Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the deal today.
PFT’s Mike Florio reported on March 5 that the Redskins were interested in Grossman, and a league source told PFT that the contract is for the league minimum salary, plus incentives.
Grossman and new Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan were together in Houston last year. Grossman played in one game with the Texans, completing three of nine passes for 33 yards and an interception in a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played for the Bears from 2003 to 2008.
The Redskins were also reportedly interested in former Broncos quarterback Chris Simms.
