Rex Grossman Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears selected Grossman during the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft, and he played for the Bears from 2003 to 2008. Under the leadership of coach Dick Jauron, Rex Grossman was sidelined as a rookie in favor of veteran quarterbacks Chris Chandler and Kordell Stewart. Grossman only saw playing time during the later portion of the season after the Bears had been eliminated from playoff contention.

Grossman’s season ended when he was forced to leave the final game with a broken finger. Prior to the start of the 2004 NFL season, the Bears fired Jauron and hired Lovie Smith, who declared Grossman the team’s starting quarterback. Rex Grossman was criticized when he threw a game-ending interception against the Detroit Lions on opening day. Criticism of his durability intensified when he damaged his knee ligaments while scrambling for a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings. The injury forced Grossman to spend the remainder of the season recuperating.

Grossman threw three touchdowns and one interception over the course of three and a half games after reclaiming his starting role. He was replaced once again by Griese when he sustained a knee injury during his fifth consecutive start. Grossman was forced to relinquish his starting position to Kyle Orton, who had previously temporarily relieved him after his 2005 preseason injury.

On March 1, 2009, Rex Grossman became a free agent. Lovie Smith (Bears Head Coach) said that Grossman was not in the team’s plans for the 2009 season.
