2013 will be Grossman’s fourth year in the DMV. From 2010-2012, the University of Florida product appeared in 17 contests and threw for over 4,000 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Before number 8’s stint with the Burgundy and Gold, Grossman was the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears where he started 31 regular season games.
In 2006, he was the Bears field general during their run to Super Bowl XLI.
Grossman will be joining Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Pat White to form quite the quartet behind center and while Griffin III and his fellow 2012 NFL Draft colleague are entrenched as the top two signal callers on the depth chart, Grossman will more than likely be the number three quarterback in Washington this season, and let me tell you to have someone with Grossman’s experience as a third-stringer is a rarity.
Find out what the Redskins and Grossman can claim that no other team in the league can here:
According to ourlads.com, there are currently 23 teams that are carrying at least three quarterbacks on their rosters.
Of the 23 signal callers who find themselves as the third man on the depth chart, only one has appeared in a Super Bowl.
Only one has thrown for 3,000 yards in a season twice.
Of the 23 men, one can claim to have had a 20 touchdown season.
That man is Rex Grossman and he is the best third string quarterback in the league. Period.
In fact, Grossman could be the backup for a handful of teams across the league. The only reason why he finds himself as the third man down the chart is due to the Redskins having two of the best young talents in the league in front of him.
In football, it all comes down to executing the gameplan to outscore your opponent and while a field goal here and there is certainly nice to have, you need to put points on the board by scoring some touchdowns.
Grossman has 56 career passing touchdowns.
The other 23 third stringers have 57 touchdowns…combined.
Keep your eyes on Grossman this summer as the Redskins prepare to defend their 2012 NFC East title and secure the fourth Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. He was a key to Griffin III’s transition from Heisman-winning quarterback to the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and will be looked to to provide leadership once again.
Hail to the Redskins!
