In shocking Houston Texans news yesterday, the team signed a new backup QB, former Chicago Bears QB and recent reject, Rex "The Sex Cannon" Grossman. Grossman was signed to a 1-year deal at the veteran minimum of $620,000.
Now seeing as Matt Schaub is the team's number one QB. And seeing as how Schaub makes Kaz Matsui look like Cal Ripken, one can kind of understand why the team felt a need to sign a backup QB. Especially as how a Detroit Lions reject, Dan Orlovsky, and a guy who has yet to get off the training squad, Alex Brink, are the current Schaub rejects.
But Rex Grossman?
First, the guy's not quite known for his ability to withstand punishment, which makes him like Schaub. Then there's the fact that he sucks. The Bears played Kyle Orton instead of this guy.
But seeing as how the Texans signed a guy known as The Sex Cannon -- because of the way he slings the ball downfield with no concern as to who's waiting to catch/intercept it -- perhaps they should have taken up that adult video company sponsorship offer. The Texans -- who have made it known that sponsorship space is available on the team's practice jerseys -- turned down an offer by adult video company Zero Tolerance. The company was seeking to buy that space on the player's practice jerseys. And with the way the Texans play, that might have been one of the few things to get excited about with the team.
The Sex Cannon and porn. That would've been a Texans team worth cheering for. Instead, we just get to hope that maybe The Sex Cannon will throw a few thousand INTs while playing for the injured Schaub -- if he can beat out Orlovsky and Brink that is.
