The Washington Redskins waited until St. Patrick's evening when America is fixated on the NCAA Tournament to announce the re-signing of quarterback Rex Grossman III.
Yes, Rex the Third is his full name. Rex Grossman, his grandfather I suspect, played for the Baltimore Colts and Detroit Lions as a kicker and middle linebacker from 1948 to 1950.
Thus, the Redskins will have two RG3s on the roster after the 2012 NFL Draft in April. We will have the real RG3 and the other RG3. You decide which is which.
The original Rex Grossman attempted one career pass. It was intercepted. [Biting my tongue now.]
The move is not unexpected, especially since Dallas snapped up Kyle Orton. Word was that the Redskins might pick up Orton as a starter if Washington failed to get Peyton Manning or Robert Griffin III.
Here at Hog Heaven, we've already made our thoughts known. If you draft RG3, you start RG3.
You all know exactly which one we mean.
Now looky here. It may be time to take a chill pill. They only signed him for one year to be Griffin's back-up. It's a good move because he knows the offense and can help teach it to Griffin. Besides, having two RG3s truely means there must be some karma at work here. And you should listen to me. I have been a Skins fan for over 50 years.
You have to be kidding me this is a joke the Redskins need a new GM because anyone that lets his coach bring back this guy should not be the GM for the Redskins I have been a big fan for 45 years and this has been one of the lowest time in the team history we have no HEART AND THE FATHER AND SON NEED TO GO
@Dkasinger Like everyone else, I reached disenchantment with Rex near the end of last season, but that's no reason to let frustration rule. All of the better FA QBs have been snapped up. What's left are the likes of Vince Young, Luke McCown and Donovan McNabb.
If you cannot improve, at least do no worse.
If Rex has to start for more than a half, the 'Skins will be in deep doo. But that's another topic.
