Well it’s official, Rex Grossman will return to the Chicago Bears in 2008.
It’s stunning to think that a guy who was pretty much done after week 3 is somehow back in the fold. But that’s what happens when Griese and Orton were equally ineffective. Given the slim free agent options bringing Rex back on a short term deal was the best option for both sides. The Bears get a QB who can compete with Orton and knows the system already. Rex gets the opportunity to stay in a situation he is comfortable in, and with a good season re-establish some value. Some might say it’s a marriage of equal incompetence, but it seems to me to be more of a fling of convience. Hopefully the improvements from Rex’s 2nd round as a starter this year is what we’ll see next year. But no matter what the Bears don’t really lose out much in this deal.
