Rex Grossman returns to Redskins
Graziano: Grossman Perfect for Role
Relax, Redskins fans. Rex Grossman isn't returning to be the starter and he'll be the perfect tutor for whichever QB Washington selects with the No. 2 pick, Dan Graziano writes. Blog
Grossman told ESPN 980 on Saturday that he's fully aware the Redskins are going to draft a quarterback -- probably Heisman Trophy winner Griffin -- with the No. 2 overall pick next month. But Grossman said he wants to remain a part of the team and play a part in its turnaround after another last-place season.
"I know they're going to draft a franchise QB," Grossman told the radio station. "If I'm on the team, I'm gonna help out that guy get up to speed, but I'll also be ready to play. I'm gonna be a good soldier, and I'll be busting my ass to help him out."
Grossman won the starting job out of training camp last year, was benched for John Beck after five games, then later regained the No. 1 spot. He threw 16 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions and had a 72.4 rating as the Redskins finished 5-11.
