Just when it seems the New York Jets can't get any crazier, news comes out that starting quarterback Geno Smith will be out at least six weeks after being punched in the jaw by a teammate. Without Smith, the Jets have journeyman veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie fourth rounder Bryce Petty next on the QB depth charts.
Fitzpatrick is a real option for Week 1, a veteran with some strong games on his resume. Petty, by most accounts, is not ready to compete for the starting gig. But down a QB, now the Jets are reportedly kicking the tires on former Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman.
Grossman hasn't played a regular season game since the 2011 season, when he started 13 games for a bad Redskins team. He threw for more than 3,100 yards to go with 16 TDs and 20 interceptions. The following year, Grossman moved to the third string QB in Washington behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Grossman's career has been a wild ride, famous for turnovers and aggressive throws, though he was the quarterback of a Chicago Bears team that reached the Super Bowl in 2006.
It's not too wild to consider that a team like the Jets might want Grossman, simply because nothing is too wild to consider when it comes to the Jets.

In case you haven't heard, eight-year NFL veteran Mark Sanchez called it a career on Tuesday. He'll move on to television, working with ESPN as a college football analyst.
Former Redskins teammate, albeit briefly, Josh Norman shared his congratulations on Twitter.
According to our records, this is the first Josh Norman Broadcasting Bootcamp attendee to make the jump to ESPN. He is also the only attendee according to our records.
Last season Sanchez played two games in Washington before he suffered a season-ending injury.
As comical as it was at times to see 'the Sanchize' on the field, he's due to be as entertaining in the booth. As evidenced in the video he has no issue poking fun at himself. Moving to college football goes back to where he had a majority of his success on the gridiron.
