Brent Grimes off to sharp start at Dolphins’ training camp

Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, who missed almost all of 2012 with an Achilles tendon injury, caught the eye with his play during the first day of training camp practices, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported Sunday.

Grimes, Salguero observed, “looked great in practice” on Sunday. Moreover, Grimes didn’t even have the injured area of his leg taped, which the cornerback indicated to be a matter of personal preference, per the Herald.

“I never do, I don’t like it,” Grimes said of taping, per the Herald. “No reason to.”

Grimes, 30, suffered the Achilles injury in the Falcons’ opening-week win at Kansas City. He signed a one-year contract with Miami in March. He’s slated to start for the Dolphins, and as long as he remains healthy, he’ll be up to that task.

    Glad to hear Brent did well today, as far as taping, he has never done that, he will be just fine.

    So much for that concern by the media. It’s good to have a pro bowl caliber corner. Good job Ireland.

    this guy was the steal of free agency. One of the best 8 corners in the game.

    prettyflyforawhiteguy1 – Anyone who thinks this is NOT a playoff quality roster (at least on paper) has a serious problem with narcotics.

    Hey, as a Steeler fan – who knows what it likes to ache for a solid corner —–> the Dolphins hit the jackpot with Grimes. Dude is a legit baller – where were my Steelers.
