He is hated by pretty much any fan base he touches but Rex Grossman manages to find work anyways. Despite the eye rolls his name brings about, the former Florida Gator quarterback has been a starting quarterback on two different teams and has played in a Super Bowl, and his next venture will most likely take him to the NFL wasteland of Cleveland.
Mike Pettine is the head coach now and Kyle Shanahan is the offensive coordinator, which means a new era may be about to get underway that cleans up the waste and instead lays it across the rest of the AFC North. With a revamped defense and armed with a pair of first-round draft picks, the Browns look to be turning a corner — so naturally they’re interested in signing Rex Grossman.
Matt Schaub to Oakland means Rex Grossman goes to Cleveland in all liklihood. BUF (Sanchez?) and, NYJ (Vick) still looking for vet QB

It doesn’t appear that he’d be the starter for long, as Brian Hoyer proved his worth in 2013 until he got hurt and the Browns will be taking a quarterback — if not two — at some point in the draft.
Grossman drawing interest from the Browns though either shows how insane Cleveland really is or that somehow Rex Grossman has unlocked the cheat code to an eternal NFL career.
