Washington Redskins sign QB Rex Grossman

Although many expected the Redskins to sign former Broncos quarterback Chris Simms, Washington made a different move at the position.

The Redskins reached agreement Wednesday with former Bears and Texans quarterback Rex Grossman on a one-year deal, the team announced.

The deal reunites Grossman, 29, with Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who also spent last season in Houston.

Grossman, whose career stats include 33 touchdowns, 36 interceptions and 6,197 throwing yards, led the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl after the 2006 season.

But he played in only 12 games the next two seasons, and left the Bears as a free agent in 2009.

If Washington is looking to use Grossman as a backup, fine. Should the team intend to make him the starting Quarterback, I think it is safe to say Washington will have a losing season in 2010. Grossman has a lifetime QB rating of 69.5 and has a career high of 74.8. That makes him slightly better than Brady Quinn.
