Rex Grossman, who spent six rollercoaster seasons with the Bears, has signed with the Houston Texans and will compete for their No. 2 quarterback spot.

Grossman's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, made the official announcement today on Twitter:

Grossman was drafted by the Bears in the first round of the 2003 draft. Grossman quarterbacked the Bears to a Super Bowl appearance in 2006, but eventually lost his starting job to Kyle Orton.
