QB Rex Daniel Grossman III is a professional football player who presently plays for the Washington Redskins team of NFL. He was the 22nd pick overall in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft. The Chicago Bears picked Grossman after he played his NCAA football for Florida. While at Florida, he was First-team All-American (2001) and AP National Player of the Year (2001).

In five seasons with the Chicago Bears, Grossman is 489 of 900 for a 54.3-percent completion rate. His passes have covered 5,907 yards as he’s hit for 31 touchdowns and thrown 33 interceptions. His overall QB rating is 70.9.

Grossman, who has had consistency and injury problems, has only once played in all 16 regular-season games. That was in 2006 when he threw for 3,193 yards, hitting for 23 touchdowns and tossing 20 interceptions. He completed 262 of 480 passes (54.6-percent) and earned a rating of 73.9.

On 12th of June 2009, he signed a one year contract with the Houston Texans worth $ 620,000 dollars. He played in a single game during the 2009 season, relieving Matt Schaub in a 23-18 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He threw nine passes for three completions, one interception and 33 yards.

On 17th March 2010, he signed a one year contract with the Washington Redskins making his first appearance for the team against the Detroit Lions. However, he was sacked and lost a fumble on his first play itself.

The six-foot-one, 217-pound quarterback possesses sound skills, good leadership qualities and show fine confidence. Grossman has been uneven in his performance, sometimes making great plays and other times terrible decisions. His arm strength is good but not overpowering, mechanics are solid and accuracy on short and medium routes is fine. Grossman needs to work on his reads of developing plays, game prep and decision-making. He has a tough time airing it out.
