Rex Daniel Grossman, III (born August 23, 1980) is an American football quarterback for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League (NFL). Grossman played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he has played professionally for the Chicago Bears, Houston Texans and Washington Redskins of the NFL.

As a college quarterback, Grossman led the Florida Gators to the 2000 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championship, the 2001 Sugar Bowl, the 2002 Orange Bowl and the 2003 Outback Bowl. He was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American and was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 2001.

Grossman was the first-round draft choice of the Chicago Bears in the 2003 NFL Draft, but spent most of his first three seasons sidelined with injuries. He completed his first full NFL season in 2006, leading the Bears to a National Football Conference Championship and a Super Bowl berth. He lost his starting job three weeks into the 2007 season, and primarily served as the team's backup quarterback afterward. Grossman spent a year as a back-up quarterback for the Houston Texans in 2009, before becoming the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback in the final three games of the 2010 season. Grossman was named the Redskins' starter to open the 2011 season.
