Brad Johnson was cut and this would make sense if he is willing to play backup. Of course anything but Brad Johnson sounds sexy.


With the Cowboys cutting Brad Johnson today, former Bears quarterback Rex Grossman expressed an interest in backing up Tony Romo.

"I would not be able to compete for the starting job there," Grossman told Sirius this afternoon. "My role would be to come in and back up. And if something were to happen to Tony there's no better offensive situation to be in in the league."

Nothing has transpired as yet between Grossman's agent and the Cowboys.

Here's more on what Grossman had to say about the Cowboys:

"They've got all the talent at running back, tight end, wide receiver, offensive line, coordinator. They've got everything in place that you'd want. Good weather, new stadium. I'm sure they are going to cover it if it is windy or cold. So that would be the ideal situation to back up. There may be a few others, I'm not sure, but that would be intriguing if I'm in a situation where I have to back up."

Is Rex Grossman a better backup than Brooks Bollinger? I would say so.

Problem with Grossman as a backup is this: if Romo goes down does Grossman try to prove something or does he just play ball?

They don't need him out there throwing three picks every game.
