Rex Grossman’s three-year tenure with the Redskins will continue.

Grossman, a first-round pick of the Bears way back in 2003, has re-signed with a team that may soon have four quarterbacks under contract.

A 13-game starter in 2011, Grossman made no appearances in 2012, following the arrival of rookies Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Multiple reports indicate that the Redskins also will sign Pat White, which would give them two mobile quarterbacks and a pair of pocket passers.

They may need one more quarterback for offseason workouts and training camps, given Griffin’s recovery from a torn ACL.
