DAVIE, Fla. Brent Grimes didnt seem overly upset, though he wasnt smiling, either.
The Miami Dolphins cornerback had just been told teammate Mike Wallace drew some laughs at Grimes expense a week earlier.
Wallace said fellow receiver Brian Hartline, thought (Grimes) was falling down but he was actually just back peddling, so he's just short.
Standing among a crowd of reporters and camera people, the 5-foot-10 Grimes acted like height comments were nothing new.
"I dont really look at corner as a big position for the most part," Grimes said. "Most corners are about 5-11 I mean, Im not 5-6.
"Im short but this is just what I do I make plays, I compete. That makes up for it."
Thats what the Dolphins were counting on when they signed Grimes to a one-year, free-contract in March.
Hes coming off two injury-plagued seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who signed Grimes as an undrafted free agent from Division II Shippensburg University (Pa.) in 2006.
