Default Re: Rex Grossman a Texan

I just came here to post this.....

Quote:
The Houston Texans could soon be adding a new quarterback to a depth chart that became considerably weaker once Sage Rosenfels was traded to the Vikings.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus has announced that Rex Grossman, a first-round pick six years ago who has become largely forgotten during his stint on the free-agent shelf, will visit the Texans on Thursday night.

Rosenhaus said he anticipates that Grossman will sign a one-year deal.

If Rosenhaus is right, the former Bears starter will join Matt Schaub, Dan Orlovsky, and Alex Brink as the four quarterbacks heading into training camp.

The real question is whether Grossman is merely a camp arm or whether he has a legitimate shot at making the 53-man roster.

His chief competition likely will be Orlovsky, who signed as a free agent. So the options to serve as the backup to Matt Schaub (who missed five games in each of his two years as a starter) will be a guy who runs out of his own end zone, or a guy who stays in bounds and fires a deep ball that is caught by the other team.

I'm in shock.

He will be a third string QB. Kubes has gone from conservative on the backup QB spot to paranoid. We went from having no more than 2 on a roster to 3. I liked Grossman's tools, but he was never consistent. He reminded me of our friend DC.

Not sure why we need Grossman? I have only heard positive things on Brink's development. I think Dan can be a good QB with Kubiak & Lil Shanny coaching him up. I really don't understand it if we actually do sign him.

I don't know what to say. I guess we'll have to wait to see if we really do sign him and what Kubiak/Smith has to say about it. We could be using whatever money we are about to spend on Rex to re-sign Dunta & OD and to sign some rookies.

I've got no problem at all with Grossman as a back up. Just don't want to ever see him as our starter. But as a back up, I'm fine with that.

Default Re: Rex Grossman a Texan

I can't help but feel Grossman is camp fodder. Kubiac only carries two QBs on the active roster during the regular season. Unless that is going to change, and since we already signed D.O. to a 3 year contract, I'm not seeing the need for Grossman. I doubt Grossman is eligable for the practice squad nor would he probably play on one.

Oh well. At least it's a new mystery to ponder.

I'm completely cool with Grossman. Good signing if true, but may indicate a 3 qb rotation.
That'll eliminate the longsnapper and thus have a TE or LB that could do both.

This looks like Quinn Gray all over again.

People will speculate about how this signing is too high-profile to be merely a camp move and how there must be something in the works, we will go through camp, and, ultimately, Grossman will be cut before the season starts.

It is interesting that Smith and Kubiak like to do this though. I wonder what the benefit is, because it can't be the most prudent practice financially.

There is NO WAY Rex Grossman is coming here to be a third-string quarterback. He's going to compete with Orlovsky, which means either he looked bad at OTAs, or the coaches aren't a sure about him as the fat contract they gave him suggested they were.

The Texans aren't going to carry 3 QBs on the 53-man roster, and Grossman obviously isn't going to the practice squad. He's here for one reason - to compete with Orlovsky.

It is ABSOLUTELY too high-profile to merely be a camp arm. It may turn out that way - but the Texans could just go out and re-sign Shane Boyd if they needed nothing more than a camp arm.

If they do keep three experienced QBs on the roster, it would prove a wise move if Schaub's injury trend continues.

It would be nice if one of the position players is also the long snapper - isn't that being considered? The third QB could slide into that spot historically used by the Texans for the long snapper.

Yep, I'd feel way more comfortable with a superbowl quarterback sitting on the bench with another option as well.

I believe that Dressen was looked at as the long snapper, and Casey has been looked at as longsnapper in camp. I can't remember who closed out the season for us after Pittman was suspended.

Well let's see. This just screams "oops Dan O isn't doing very well" in OTA's to me. They won't say that publically, but that's my take. Looks to me like they are probably telling him he has a legit shot to be the primary backup. I say bring him in. He has a lot of starting experience. He is wildly inconsistent and is prone to being picked, but as a backup he isn't a bad option really. Don't want him starting for an extended period if we can help it though. I guess I would just say let the best man win.
