NFL Free Agency Rumors: Rex Grossman expected to sign with Cleveland Browns

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.


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.

    Why would you waste a roster spot on this guy. If you want someone who knows the system why not hire another assistant coach? Worst case scenario is that you sign this guy in-season because all our QBs are hurt.

    This writer is a hack. Calling Cleveland a wasteland is not journalism, it’s ignorant just like calling this guy an editor or bean counter !!!

  • daddy wags

    Who is this f***ing guy who states “the NFL wasteland of Cleveland” All Clevelander’s unite. This guy HAS GOT TO GO!

    I like how Josh is an editor, yet his profile says that he has been with Fansided since “Novemember.”
    Note to Josh: Cleveland fans are rabidly loyal. If you want to be taken seriously as a journalist – you shouldn’t show your bias.

  • Snitket

    As lame as Jason Campbell was – he is far better than Rex Grossman. Insane to bring this guy in.

  • Gary

    What’s insane is the so called sports writers who insist Cleveland is taking Grossman,
    I guess it doesn’t matter that “nobody” from Cleveland said this, just you so called sports writers.
    That means you too Josh Hill. You moron. What gives you the right to call Cleveland “The NFL Wasteland?”
    What makes you a expert? Nothing comes out of your mouth but stupid comments and idiotic rumors with nothing to back them up.
