Former Falcons pro-bowl corner back Brent Grimes signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. The deal is worth a reported $5.5 million. Grimes, who only appeared in one game last season due to a torn Achilles tendon, made a visit Cleveland back on March 16th but left without a deal. ESPN’s Brent Sobleski tweeted that the Browns were offering Grimes similar salary (slightly less), but spread out over a couple years. From what I was told, Miami offered slightly more $ in one-year deal for Grimes than Browns did in multi-year offer. Made it tough choice — Brent Sobleski (@brentsobleski) March 30, 2013 CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported that the Browns, who have $28 million in cap space, weren’t willing to match the high price for a player coming off a torn ACL. Corner Brent Grimes ends up with the Dolphins, as expected. Gets $5.5M for 1 yr. Browns not willing to go that high given injury situation — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 30, 2013 Grimes, 29, was undrafted out Shippenburg University (GO SEA DEVILS!) in 2007 and spent the past six seasons with the Falcons. Grimes made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and the Falcons used the franchise tag on him following the 2011 season. With Grimes off the market, the Browns are still looking for a corner back to play opposite of Joe Haden. Missing out on Grimes should only increase speculation that the Browns could take Alabama CB Dee Milliner with the 6th pick in the 2013 NFL draft on Thursday, April 25th.
