Rex Grossman said he could be ready for Jets in a week

Former Washington and Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman said that he could be ready for the New York Jets in a week or so.

What It Means:

Grossman, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2013, said that he sprained his foot while training and is waiting for it to heal. With Geno Smith sidelined for 6 to 10 weeks, the team will turn to Ryan Fitzpatrick to start. Bryce Petty is not expected to be NFL-ready yet, so the team is looking for a veteran quarterback.

According to our Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, which compares a player's performance to expectation level, Grossman has never been an above-replacement-level quarterback. Grossman's "best" season came in 2011 when he finished just 2.90 points below expectation in terms of adding points to his team's expected outcome. In 2006, when the Bears made the Super Bowl, Grossman's Passing NEP was -31.82.
