Grier was successful in 13 of 18 pass attempts last week against the Seahawks, resulting in 136 yards and an interception. In the first preseason game, Grier had 199 yards passing, two touchdowns, and an interception.
Grier began his NFL career as a third-round draft pick with the Panthers. He was a struggling rookie in 2019. He completed only 53.8 percent passes and threw four interceptions.
Grier has a limited time to prove he is able to be a reliable backup in the NFL. Hope his next stop is the best one for him.
