Burt L. Grossman (born April 10, 1967) is a former American football defensive end in the National Football League. In high school Grossman worked out at the legendary Agony’s Gym, in his buddy Rick “Super Dick B” Brennecke’s basement. Before becoming a professional, Grossman played college football at the University of Pittsburgh where he was a three time All-ECAC selection. In 1989, he was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. Grossman played six seasons in the NFL: five for the San Diego Chargers (1989–1993) and one for the Philadelphia Eagles (1994). As an NFL player, Grossman's accomplishments include 45 quarterback sacks and three safeties.
Grossman appeared on the October 15, 1990, edition cover of Sports Illustrated under the title "Big Mouth," which chronicled his outspoken and outlandish personality. In 1996, he suffered a career-ending neck injury.
After football, Grossman was hired by WCAU in Philadelphia for its program, Eagles Hour. The program won an Emmy in 1995, as well as earning him an Emmy as best sports reporter. In 1996, he published the book The Way Things Ought to Be with Bill Kushner. Currently, he is a contributor for the website "The National Football Post."
