Falcons back up QBs have not done as well as hoped, especially hometown hero T.J. Yates. Yates who grew up in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, GA was thought to be right pick to back up starter Matt Ryan. However he has been ineffective in his 2 preseason stints causing the Falcons to search for veteran help.
Grossman is familiar with the Falcons offense since his last regular season appearance came with the Redskins while Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan was in the same role in DC
