Grossman is visiting with the Houston Texans Thursday night, and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expects the former University of Florida standout will sign a one-year deal, according to ESPN senior NFL writer John Clayton.
"Grossman is expected to take a physical and then discuss a one-year contract with the Texans. He has been an unrestricted free agent but hasn't made any known visits prior to this."
Last month, Rosenhaus squashed internet rumors that Grossman would be working out for a United Football League team, telling Sports Pros(e), "Rex will be playing in the NFL this season. We have not considered any other leagues. He will be on a NFL roster by the start of training camps."
Grossman quarterbacked the Bears to a Super Bowl appearance in 2006, but lost his starting job to Kyle Orton.
The Texans are looking for a quarterback to backup Matt Schaub after Sage Rosenfels was traded to the Minnesota Vikings.
