Brent Grimes visits the Browns

Now that the market for cornerbacks has been clearly established (i.e., it stinks), it’s time for Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes to do a deal.

And he could be doing one in Cleveland.

Alex Marvez of reports that Grimes has visited the Browns, following his visit to the Dolphins.

Grimes received the franchise tag last year in Atlanta.  He tore an Achilles tendon in Week One and missed the rest of the season.

The Falcons remain interested in bringing Grimes back.  He turns 30 later this year.

    the football gods say yet another nfl player that does not want too play for the redskins

    Meh…..They want to sign a 30 year old coming off a torn achilles to start opposite Haden? I would rather take Milliner at the 6 spot in the first round.

    Biggest story of the day Friday was Doom and the Broncos deal. 4 hours ago he fired his agent and still no story on pft. Way to be on top of the game boys.

    Would love to see Grimes in an orange helmet!

    Now that the Skins couldn’t land Talib, maybe they should Perdue Grimes.

    Signing Grimes to go oppo Haden, Kruger playing the Jack & bookend to Sheard, Groves as an excellent rotational guy & a stacked line, the Browns D becomes best in the AFCN.

    That would, IMO, put a trade back on the map & them focusing on adding LG Chance Warmack & a Rd 2 pick to either add someone better to play the Mack in Horton’s 34 or another WR to add for Weeden (or Mallet) to target.

    Browns are definitely looking to become contenders!

    From Atlanta to Miami, sure. That’s understandable, from a lifestyle and franchise perspective. But from Atlanta to Cleveland? Unless they give you the keys to the brinks truck, it’s not even worth the visit.

    Friends don’t let friends go to Cleveland.

    Hoped Grimes would visit Oakland. He’s older and coming off injury he should be very affordable. Browns might be trouble this year. If they can get a QB the offensive side has weapons at RB and two WRs (Gordon and Little)

  9. oldbrowndawg says: Mar 16, 2013 8:11 PM

    Sorry, orlandodawg, but Milliner will be gone by #6. He’s either going to Jacksonville, Philly, or Detroit. No way he’s still on the board at #6.

  10. wamj2008 says: Mar 16, 2013 8:11 PM

    Yes but does he kill zombies like his brother?

  11. brownsclown says: Mar 16, 2013 8:16 PM

    Typical Lombardturd move. Old, slow player with a bad leg. Looks like a six mil a year deal is coming down the pike!

  12. 21skinsfan21 says: Mar 16, 2013 8:19 PM

    Seriously, will the skins just pick up some secondary? I know the draft, but we need more than one person.

    The football god says those who claim to be the football god are blasphemous and shall be stricken to hell with the rest of the football morons.

    I hear ya man that would be great to recoup that 2nd rounder. But to be honest Im sick of trading down and adding 2nd tier talent in the draft. I say we stay put and draft a difference making play maker at 6. We need elite playmakers not 2nd and 3rd round fallbacks. A couple more of those and we are there. I mean…..we are so close. Feel it? I do.

    Sign a vet…..draft Milliner, throw him in packages and let him learn the ropes until hes ready for the full time start which should be almost immediately. Move the odd man to the packages and Brown to Safety next to Ward. Or drop Brown and bring in a FA safety. Talk about a stout secondary.

    If no DB in the draft just follow this same formula for Jordon, Jones, Ansah, etc..

    Always thought Grimes was a good CB. Too bad he was injured, because he was excellent on coverage. If the Browns could get this guy on the cheaper side, it’s not a bad risk to take.

  16. orangeandblack67 says: Mar 16, 2013 8:38 PM

    Best of luck horse. Go NE Vikings

  17. nomorewhodey says: Mar 16, 2013 8:52 PM

    Please sign this guy. Yeah he’s 30 coming off of an injury. But the thought of missing out on Milliner and having to bring back Sheldon or go with skrine makes me want to run my face into a wall.

  18. dabrowns13 says: Mar 16, 2013 8:54 PM

    wheres Michael Huff at?

  19. kingfish2013 says: Mar 16, 2013 9:07 PM

    Elvis to Rock n Roll Capital.We can overpay him easily.we need some Rockstars!

  20. mzmonea says: Mar 16, 2013 9:20 PM

    This is the guy that Peyton hillis hurdled, except he’s older and coming off an injury.. Pass.

  21. mattyc says: Mar 16, 2013 9:46 PM


    This isn’t a “difference maker” draft. I could sit at 6 & take Milliner or move down & take Rhodes in the 16-22 range. If I moved down & added a 2, I could go Warmack & add Trufant, Banks, Wreh Wilson, in the 2nd, Alford or Slay in the 3rd. I could also go Guard, Jamie Collins in the 2nd (I think this guy is the best Jack/Joker prospect in the draft), & go with Slay or Alford in the 3rd. They could also move down for Mingo, go corner in the 2nd, & take UK RG Larry Warford in the 3rd.

    This is more of a deep draft, like 09′ where all of this yrs FA corners were being drafted in the 3rd/4th rds, rather than one where you can get a big time difference maker in the Top 10. Only way I stay at 6 is if I want Geno Smith or need a Tackle. Anything else, I’m moving down!

    Achilles injuries are nasty and can end careers. Nobody knows how well Grimes is going to respond after his injury heals. He’s a huge risk for anyone that’s going to give him the big bucks he’s seeking.

  23. wgray981 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:03 PM

    The Browns should be worrying more about their pathetic offense at this point…

  24. ballboy48 says: Mar 17, 2013 5:53 AM

    @wgray981…I think the Browns are trying to get as many pieces in place on defense, to grab Patterson at 6. They could easily go offense if Milliner is not there.

  25. dawgswillhunt says: Mar 17, 2013 6:27 AM

    This is a prime example of why guys don’t want to play on a franchise tag.

    Good luck getting healthy and getting your career back on track! Hope it works out for you.

    Browns are a dark horse playoff team this year.

  27. gbfanforever says: Mar 17, 2013 9:31 AM

    I’ll never forget how badly the packers torched this guy in the 2010 playoffs.
