Free agent cornerback Brent Grimes has long been viewed as the Plan B for the Buccaneers if they don’t consummate Plan A, which is a trade with the Jets to acquire Darrelle Revis.
But Plan B may have just gone out the window.
According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, it doesn’t look like Grimes is going to be a Buccaneer. Stroud attributes that report to “someone with knowledge of the situation” and suggests that the Dolphins or the Browns are more likely landing spots for Grimes.
Most of the cornerbacks who were available when free agency started two weeks ago have been snapped up, and Grimes may be the best still out there. So if Grimes is the Bucs’ Plan B, there may not be a very good option for Plan C.
Which means the Bucs may be turning their attention back to Plan A, trading for Revis.
