The Washington Redskins have reached an agreement to bring back veteran Rex Grossman, the quarterback said.
Grossman spent last season as Washington’s third-string quarterback. He served as a mentor to rookies Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, and an extension of offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
Washington Coach Mike Shanahan said last month that he hoped to re-sign Grossman.
He agreed to a one-year deal.
“I’m very excited to be a part of the organization still, and I’m looking forward to coming in, contributing and getting better,” Grossman said when reached by phone.
Grossman said the uncertainty of Griffin’s recovery had nothing to do with his desire to return to Washington. He also said the team’s pursuit of quarterback Pat White didn’t impact him.
