The Falcons announced Wednesday that they have signed Rex Grossman. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported it is a one-year deal, per a source informed of the contract. The 35-year-old has now worked with Shanahan over three stops in Washington, Cleveland and Atlanta.
Bonding with Shanahan has given Grossman a nice, late-career renaissance. As practice times continue to dwindle, coaches aren't taking chances anymore with players who might not know their system.
