The Rex Grossman experience is coming to Atlanta.
Grossman visited with the Falcons on Tuesday and he’ll be enjoying their Southern hospitality for a little while longer. PFT has learned, via a league source, that Grossman has agreed to a one-year deal with the team.
The Falcons will add Grossman to the mix vying to be the backup to Matt Ryan come the start of the regular season. T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree have been competing for the job this summer, although one of them could be on the way out with Grossman coming on board.
Grossman hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2011, when he started 13 games for the Redskins, but he has a long relationship with Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and the Falcons wouldn’t be signing him if they were convinced that the right guys were already on the roster.
