Mediocrity is the Name
The Bears and quarterback Rex Grossman have agreed to terms Saturday on a one-year contract worth $3 million, including a signing bonus, half of which is guaranteed. Grossman can also earn just shy of $2 million more in performances incentives.
The AP has reported the deal has been signed.
Grossman, who was headed for the free-agent market Feb. 29, will get a chance to compete for the starting role next season but has not been promised in job. One NFL source said it would be Kyle Orton's job to lose once training camp starts.
Why waste the signing bonus money? Grossman was never the answer and the money is better spent on another wide receiver.
