Falcons signed QB Rex Grossman to a one-year, $1 million contract.

A follower of OC Kyle Shanahan, Grossman will always have a job as long as Shanahan's in the league. Grossman, 35, hasn't attempted a regular-season pass since 2011. His signing likely means bad news for T.J. Yates and/or Sean Renfree. Yates has been particularly horrible the past two preseasons.

Free agent QB Rex Grossman will work out for the Falcons on Tuesday.

Grossman is undergoing a physical Tuesday morning and will work out for the team in the afternoon. Grossman has a long history with new Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan, and neither T.J. Yates nor Sean Renfree has shown well this preseason. If all goes well in the physical, Grossman should have a deal in the very near future.

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports the Falcons are interested in free agent QB Rex Grossman.

Grossman spurned the Jets in their pursuit for a veteran quarterback after Geno Smith's broken jaw and hasn't appeared in a game since 2011. But he has a long history with new Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan. T.J Yates and Sean Renfree are the current backups to Matt Ryan in Atlanta.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Jets have "no imminent plan" to workout free agent quarterbacks Rex Grossman or Tyler Thigpen.

Anderson said the Jets have no plans to add a quarterback before Thursday's preseason opener against the Lions. Grossman hasn't appeared in a game since 2011 and would only be a depth signing for the Jets. The Jets should be fine with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center while Geno Smith recovers from a broken jaw.
Tue, Aug 11, 2015 08:50:00 PM

The Jets have "reached out" to free agent Rex Grossman.

However, Grossman is reportedly injured, and "will need a few weeks to get ready." In other words, he won't be signed. The Jets need a veteran to pair with Bryce Petty behind Ryan Fitzpatrick while Geno Smith (jaw) rehabs.

Free agent QB Rex Grossman has rejected an offer to sign with the Browns for Week 17.

Grossman is choosing instead to spend the holiday with his family. We can't blame him. The Browns have nothing to play for, and Grossman isn't in need of a one-week paycheck at the league minimum at the expense of missing Christmas. The Browns will turn to undrafted rookie Connor Shaw vs. Baltimore.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi expects the Browns to sign free agent QB Rex Grossman for Week 17.

We'd much rather see Terrelle Pryor or even Tim Tebow, but Grossman is probably the most sensible choice. He spent nearly three weeks with the Browns in training camp, and is known to be tight with OC Kyle Shanahan, with whom Grossman spent time in both Houston and Washington. It's not out of the question that Grossman ends up starting in Week 17 against Baltimore, though Connor Shaw is the favorite, assuming Brian Hoyer (shoulder) can't go.

Browns released QB Rex Grossman.

With Johnny Manziel already the 1B to Brian Hoyer's 1A, the Browns didn't need to carry three quarterbacks. Now 34, Grossman last attempted a regular-season pass in 2011.
Sun, Aug 31, 2014 02:37:00 PM

Browns signed QB Rex Grossman.

Backups Tyler Thigpen and Connor Shaw can probably start packing their bags. Grossman has a history with OC Kyle Shanahan, having played for him in both Houston and Washington. Grossman will not be a factor to start. Instead, he'll be a sounding board for both Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel.

The Dolphins will not sign free agent Rex Grossman after his Monday workout.

Grossman reportedly is scheduled to work out with another team shortly. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson suggested Monday the Fins might sign Brady Quinn, but they are not expected to add Grossman or John Skelton to the roster.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 03:13:00 PM

The Dolphins are scheduled to work out free agent Rex Grossman on Monday.

The Fins are dealing with injuries to Matt Moore and Pat Devlin, forcing UDFA Seth Lobato to operate as Ryan Tannehill's backup in training camp. Grossman, 34, could serve as a camp and preseason arm until final cuts.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 11:38:00 PM

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.
Sat, Apr 12, 2014 08:37:00 PM

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.
Wed, Apr 9, 2014 08:20:00 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.
