Report: Grossman to sign with Redskins

By Matt Mosley

The Washington Redskins and unrestricted free-agent quarterback Rex Grossman reached an agreement Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Grossman worked with Skins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Houston last season, so he has a working knowledge of what the offense will be.

It will be interesting to see whether Mike Shanahan would hold an open competition between Jason Campbell and Grossman. And, of course, you could have a third entry if the Redskins select Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen with the fourth overall pick.

For now it simply means that Colt Brennan's days as a local cult hero are probably numbered. Grossman helped lead the Bears to the Super Bowl in '06, but his career quickly faded after that.

Grossman's certainly not a long-term option. He's a familiar face who could help bridge the gap.
