Brent Grimes visiting Dolphins

Not only does Brent Grimes not have a deal with the Falcons, but he might have a new address soon.

The Dolphins announced they had Grimes in town for a free agent visit.

Miami needs to re-stock there after losing Sean Smith to Kansas City. The need is even more acute in Atlanta, after the Falcons released Dunta Robinson (who also signed with the Chiefs).

Grimes is in an interesting spot, hitting the market after missing last season with an Achilles injury, and being franchised-tagged the year before.

As with seemingly every other free agent in the league right now, he’s likely to have to take a short-term deal and prove himself, before trying free agency again at a better time.

    Good player who a team might get a good price on with a short term deal and make him EARN a long term deal. Worth taking a shot on

    Not with the Dolphins. He’ll probably get the top end of the range, and just about all guaranteed money for 3 years.

    We need GrimeTime in Atlanta. If we lost both Grimes and Dunta, add on Asante’s injury prone, the CB depth is comical.

    I’m not so sure, they only gave Keller a 1 year deal. and they let him leave town, risking losing him to another team.

    The Dolphins have done a masterful job this off season why do people who know nothing open their mouths. Grimes will get a 1 year deal like Keller did, by Miami or someone else.

    This guy is great when healthy. Might be a Saint.

    “why do people who know nothing open their mouths.”
    Usually, it’s because:
    a) Short-term memories and/or lack of intelligence.
    b) They’re trolls, and it’s easier for them to attack someone else’s team than it is to defend their own.
    c) To show off their “expertise” the few times they get something right (while conveniently refusing to mention or excusing their many errors, a.k.a., the broken clock syndrome).
    d) Some combination of the above.

    Getting Grimes would be a massive move.. It would really open up the draft so the Dolphins would not be forced to take 2 CBs within there 1 st 5 picks in the 1st 3 rounds.. Locking up Grimes and signing either BigJake back or Eric Winston would leave the Dolphins in amazing shape for the Draft. They would be able to snag a dope young DE like Werner, Jordan, Ansha, Tank Carradine, Moore to compliment Wake with the 12th pick, then with there 2 2nds they can grab Ertz, and one of the best CBs still on the board (Rhodes, Banks, Poyer, Amerson, etc) Then with our 2 3 rd rounders they can nab a dope WR (Bailey, Wheaton, Patton, Swope). And with the 2nd 3rd rounder they can see if they can grab a guard to compete with that fat mess John Jerry. Get it done Jeff!! This is very doable.

    So, who kidnapped Jeff Ireland and has been making all these moves this off-season?

    I kid, I kid. :D
