Brent Grimes was a member of the Atlanta Falcons in 2012 where he just signed the franchise tag, after having a pro bowl 2011 season. In the first game of the 2012  season Grimes suffered a torn achilles and was out for the entire season. Many thought that Grimes would not be able to comeback from the injury, let alone play at a high level. Jeff Ireland was dealing out huge contracts left and right, but the best contract was giving Grimes a 1 year 5 million dollar contract to “Prove himself”. He not only proved himself but was back at his pro bowl level and was one of the best defensive backs in the NFL. He was the number two rated cornerback on Profootball focus and played just about every snap this season. He had four interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 60 tackles and defended 16 passes. His 16 passes defended was 7th in the league and his four interceptions were 4th in the league. The craziest stat was that Grimes didn’t allow a single touchdown to a  wide receiver all season. It is impossible to be more lockdown then that. Grime’s work ethic was also one of the best, he would also be holding a ball everyday at practice. It was clear that he also made the players around him better. In limited playing time Dimitri Patterson had four interceptions, while both Nollan Carroll and Jimmy Wilson had career highs in interceptions. One of the other candidates for comeback player is Darrelle Revis, who was recovering from an ACL injury. Revis had only two INTs and 13 passes defended. Revis is known as a lockdown corner but Grimes dominated all season. Not only does Grimes deserve Comeback player of the year but he also deserves a long term contract in Miami. The Miami Herald’s  Armando Salguero Reported that Grimes wants to stay in Miami. He deserves a contract that is worth about $24 million over three years.
