“According to the United Football League Web site, former Bears quarterback Rex Grossman will participate in drills in front of UFL head coaches.The Web site quotes a Las Vegas television station, saying that another player, former Texas Tech star, Graham Harrell, will also participate in the drills in a “pro day” in Las Vegas. ”
This is the same guy who was the starting quarterback for the Bears in Super Bowl XLI.
It’s just amazing how a guy could drop off like this, I thought for sure someone in the NFL would bring him on as a backup.
Grossman even hired a new agent, Drew Rosenhaus, just to get some attention from the NFL.
Rosenhaus made this statement about Grossman earlier this month :
“Free agent QB Rex Grossman has been training hard on a daily basis and is looking forward to signing with a team in time for OTA’s.”
This is what Drew Rosenhaus had to say about the rumors that Grossman will be trying out in the UFL:
“Rex will be playing in the NFL this season, we have not considered any other leagues. He will be on
a NFL roster by the start of training camps.”
I was one of the few Rex supporters in Chicago, but wherever he lands I wish him all of my best.
Good luck Rex.
