Grimes, 29, instantly becomes the top cornerback on the Dolphins roster and fills the void left by Sean Smith who left in free agency.  This is another step forward in an already impressive offseason for General Manager Jeff Ireland. He stuck to his initial price with Grimes' health concerns in mind and ensured the contract does not put the team in a diffcult position in the future. In the case that Grimes isn't ready for the se...
