The Giants have not expressed any interest in free agent Rex Grossman.
With Eli Manning out six weeks following ankle surgery, the Giants are looking to add a veteran quarterback for OTAs. Free agents Josh Freeman and Matt Flynn are scheduled for workouts next week, but Grossman isn't on their radar. Grossman is expected to sign with the Browns before their April 29 minicamp.

Coach Mike Pettine says the Browns plan to sign a veteran quarterback before their April 29 minicamp.

The Browns are pleased with Brian Hoyer's ACL recovery, but he may not be a full-go by late April, and YouTube star Alex Tanney is the only other quarterback on Cleveland's offseason roster. We expect the Browns to sign Rex Grossman, who has been following OC Kyle Shanahan around the NFL for a half-decade.
Apr 9 - 8:20 PM

CBS Sports expects the Browns to sign free agent QB Rex Grossman.

After losing out on Matt Schaub, Grossman is the next best option as a sounding board for whomever the Browns employ at quarterback. Grossman has plenty of experience in OC Kyle Shanahan's offense and would be nothing more than a veteran to bounce questions off of for Brian Hoyer and company.
Mar 21 - 9:47 AM

ESPN Cleveland suggests free agent QB Rex Grossman as a target for the Browns.

Grossman has spent the past five seasons -- one in Houston and the last four in Washington -- with new Browns OC Kyle Shanahan. The only quarterback that appears to be safe in Cleveland is Brian Hoyer. Shanahan liked to keep three quarterbacks while with the Redskins, so he could team Grossman up with Hoyer and a rookie. Grossman wouldn't be a candidate to start.
Feb 4 - 1:15 PM

Rex Grossman completed 11-of-21 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

Grossman started and played the first and third quarters, rotating with Pat White. The 11-year veteran made some nice throws, but he was lucky he didn't have a pick-six added to his stat line. Grossman threw a lame duck to Aldrick Robinson, but Bills CB Stephon Gilmore dropped the ball. Through three preseason games, Grossman has completed 31-of-58 passes (53.4 percent) for 423 yards (7.3 YPA), three touchdowns, and an interception. He's very much earned the third-string job behind RG3 and Kirk Cousins.

CSN Washington believes the Redskins are considering carrying just two quarterbacks this season.

Reporter Rich Tandler takes the presence of four tight ends and kickoff specialist John Potter as a sign that coach Mike Shanahan may be prepared to go forward with only Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins under center. That would be a risky proposition considering RGIII's health, but would leave Rex Grossman as the odd man out. Although he's one of Shanahan's favorite players, Grossman didn't attempt a single pass in 2012.

Redskins re-signed QB Rex Grossman.

At this point, Mike Shanahan might as well give his favorite player a lifetime contract. Grossman's return shouldn't affect the Redskins' expected deal with free agent Pat White. Going on 33 and coming off a season where he didn't attempt a pass, Grossman's roster spot likely isn't guaranteed, but he'll be leaned on for his experience in Shanny's system during OTAs and training camp.
Wed, Apr 3, 2013 02:28:00 PM

The Redskins "hope and expect" to re-sign free agent Rex Grossman.

The Redskins met with Grossman's rep earlier this week. One of coach Mike Shanahan's all-time favorite players, Grossman should be back to back up Kirk Cousins as Robert Griffin III (knee surgery) continues his rehab.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 09:45:00 AM

Free agent Rex Grossman is unsure if he'll be back with the Redskins in 2013.

The Redskins would be well served by having a veteran backup behind Kirk Cousins if Robert Griffin III (ACL) isn't ready for Week 1, but aren't in a hurry to make a decision on Mike Shanahan's teacher's pet. Grossman hasn't been connected to any other teams in free agency.
Tue, Mar 19, 2013 05:33:00 PM

Redskins declared QB Rex Grossman, WR Dezmon Briscoe, CB Crezdon Butler, S Brandon Meriweather, OLs Josh LeRibeus and Adam Gettis, and NT Chris Baker inactive for Week 1.

Rookie Kirk Cousins will be the No. 2 quarterback. Meriweather is dealing with a knee injury and Baker has an ankle ailment. The rest are healthy.
Sun, Sep 9, 2012 11:39:00 AM

Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Rex Grossman will have to hold off Kirk Cousins to be the Redskins' backup quarterback coming out of training camp.

Grossman has a significant leg up on Cousins because of his knowledge of the offense and close friendship with OC Kyle Shanahan. The Skins also won't want to enter the season with two rookie quarterbacks. Should Robert Griffin III be injured or struggle out of the chute, Grossman would get the nod over Cousins.
Sun, May 6, 2012 01:46:00 PM

Re-signed on Saturday, Rex Grossman has acknowledged he won't be the Redskins' starting quarterback in 2012.

"I'm fully aware they're going to draft a quarterback," he said. "Whatever my role will be, I want to be a part of this team, and turn this thing around." Grossman has been the quarterback the Redskins can't quit, but he will be Robert Griffin III's clipboard holder if all goes according to plan. John Beck is a candidate for release.
Sun, Mar 18, 2012 10:36:00 AM

Redskins re-signed QB Rex Grossman to a one-year contract.

Grossman's preference was to return to Washington throughout free agency, and it's doubtful any team would have been willing to give him a contract. He'll serve in a valuable role as a backup and mentor to projected No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III.
Sat, Mar 17, 2012 08:14:00 PM

Impending free agent Rex Grossman hopes to return to the Redskins in 2012.

"I really enjoy it here. I really enjoy this offensive system, what they’re building here," Grossman said Sunday. "So I’d love for this to be the place where I end up." Grossman had better hope the feeling is mutual, because coming off a 25-turnover season that saw him complete only 57.9 percent of his passes, it's doubtful anyone else will be willing to give him a chance. The Redskins are likely to make a big push to draft a franchise quarterback next spring.
Mon, Jan 2, 2012 10:51:00 AM

Rex Grossman completed 22-of-45 passes for 256 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Redskins Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Grossman led the NFC in interceptions this year, completed 58.8 percent of his passes, and finished 29th in the NFL in passer rating. The Redskins will be aggressive in replacing him this offseason, and could look to completely rebuild their quarterback depth through free agency and the draft.
