MIAMI (AP) -- Cornerback Brent Grimes, who missed almost all of last season with an Achilles tendon injury, has signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins. Grimes started 28 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2010-11 but was hurt in the opener last year. He was undrafted and broke into the NFL with the Falcons in 2007. Grimes, who has 13 career interceptions, will compete for a starting job with the Dolphins. They lost Sean Smith via free agency to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Mike Wallace Really Hates Snow

“Watch out, nimbostratus clouds!” A year before he left the Steelers via free agency, Mike Wallace publicly expressed a desire to get Larry Fitzgerald type money in his next contract.

Dwight Freeney sandbagging with contract demands
