Grossman's shortcomings in Chicago still being pointed out
Rex Grossman continues to be beat up in Chicago.
The quarterback, now a reserve behind Donovan McNabb in Washington, helped lead the Bears to the Super Bowl following the 2006 season but seemingly hasn’t been able to do anything right since.
He lost his starting job at the beginning of the 2007 season and was gone soon after that. His mistakes were always magnified and his accomplishments never seemed to earn the respect they deserved. Now, it’s been pointed out by ChicagoBusiness.com that Grossman took a bath in Donald Trump’s striking tower, the largest built in the United States in three decades, in downtown Chicago.
Grossman paid $2.68 million for a two-bedroom condo on the 36th floor of the skyscraper in September 2008 when he was entrenched as Kyle Orton’s backup. The sinking real estate market nailed Grossman too. He sold it in January for $2 million, losing 25 percent on the deal.
The building hasn’t brought riches to Trump either as he tries to buy more time from lenders for the 92-story project he developed.
