Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is bringing an old friend with him to Atlanta.
The Falcons announced Wednesday that they have signed Rex Grossman. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported he will sign a one-year deal, per a source informed of the contract. The 35-year-old has now worked with Shanahan over three stops in Washington, Cleveland and Atlanta.

T.J. Yates didn't enter training camp thinking he was entitled to anything.
Although the Atlanta Falcons quarterback has one playoff win under his belt and essentially ran offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme when he played for Gary Kubiak in Houston, Yates knew how key preseason games would be in determining the backup to starter Matt Ryan.
Yates would be the first to admit his first live action this season was a little shaky. He took over for Ryan after one series and completed 9 of 15 passes for 105 yards with an interception in 32 snaps. He was sacked once and had a passer rating of 53.5.
Yates, who ran his share of bootlegs, wishes he had a couple of passes back as he was obviously off target. There appeared to be miscommunication between himself and rookie receiver Justin Hardy on the interception.
Meanwhile, Renfree completed 6 of 7 passes for 68 yards in 23 snaps. His passer rating was 107.1.

In five fast hours Tuesday, the rebuilding Texans cemented their long-debated quarterback situation and erased the man who led the franchise to its first playoff victory.
Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick became coach Bill O’Brien’s first NFL starting QB. T.J. Yates was released. Former University of Houston star Case Keenum was effectively promoted, already placing the reconfigured 2014 Texans in a similar situation to their 2013 fall.

Four quarterbacks have a chance to be the Texans’ Week 1 starter.
First-year coach Bill O’Brien said the team will eventually make a decision about its quarterback situation, which will affect repetitions during training camp. But as of Tuesday, the race for the starter spot remains “wide open.”

The Texans will draft one quarterback and "maybe two," HC Bill O'Brien told fans.
Although the Texans reportedly have been dangling the No. 1 overall pick in trade talks, the Houston Chronicle's John McClain has maintained they will draft a quarterback with their top selection.
O'Brien was speaking at a town hall meeting. The team recently signed Ryan Fitzpatrick and still has Case Keenum and T.J. Yates under contract. O'Brien worked miracles with Matt McGloin at Penn State in just a year, so the potential is there for him to turn any of the younger guys into a usable fantasy QB.
