The Miami Dolphins had a plan all along….it just took a little longer than many fans would like.  The Dolphins let Sean Smith walk away in free agency, which left a gaping hole in their secondary.  On Saturday, after what seemed to be weeks of negotiations, the Dolphins reached an agreement with former Pro Bowl cornerback, Brent Grimes.  As Jason LaCanfora reports, the deal is for 1 year and is worth $5.5 million with $3 million guaranteed. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Grimes also received interested from the Browns, but they weren’t willing to spend quite as much as the Dolphins.  The negotiations for Grimes were tricky, as he injured his Achilles tendon in last season’s opener.  He’s now 7 months removed from the injury and is said to be making good progress in rehab. Grimes will enter his 7th NFL season in September and will turn 30 years old in July.  He made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and won the NFL Alumni Associations ‘Best Cornerback’ award in 2011.  Grimes played his previous 6 seasons with the Falcons, collecting a total of 13 interceptions in 4 seasons as a starter.   (cont’d on page 2, click here)
