SHARE Combine: Bears expected to meet with Grossman’s agent this morning

INDIANAPOLISIt was during the late dinner hour at the combine in 2002 that the Bears put the finishing touches on a contract for a quarterback, agreeing to a pact with Jim Miller.

The team is seeking to get a deal in place for Rex Grossman here, and will meet with his agent Eugene Parker starting this morning. General manager Jerry Angelo revealed Thursday that the team has presented the player with a contract offer already, but would not say whether it was a one- or multi-year contract.

“I think this is best situation [for him], Angelo said when asked if he was confident the team would re-sign the first-round pick from 2003. “Thats my opinion. Ive shared that with his agent. I dont see any reason why he wouldnt come back given the scenario. The grass always looks greener, but its got to be mowed too. So I feel hell make a good decision.

If the Bears are successful in their bid to land Grossman, its expected the organization will cut ties with Brian Griese, who is due a $300,000 roster bonus early next month.

Another telling thing Angelo said: “We have to get that position right.

Weve been hearing that for about ever, at least since Miller was signed here.
