Grossman wanted to stay with the Bears, and Bears general manager Jerry Angelo and coach Lovie Smith wanted to give him one more chance to stay as their starting quarterback. On Saturday, each side worked out a deal in order for the relationship to continue.
“It’s still a great opportunity for him [in Chicago],” his agent, Eugene Parker, told ESPN.com.
Under terms of the deal, Grossman will have a $3 million base salary. He can make close to $2 million in incentives as long as he’s the starting quarterback.
