Brent Grimes couldn’t have hit free agency at a worse time. The one-time Pro Bowler was one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL in 2010 before missing four games in 2011 and the entire 2012 season with injuries. The 29-year-old will be able to prove himself on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, though. Grimes agreed to terms on a $5.5 million contract with $3 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Not only is Grimes coming off a torn Achilles, but this is also one of the toughest markets for free agent cornerbacks. Aqib Talib was only able to get a one-year, $5 million contract with the Patriots and Sean Smith, who Grimes will be replacing in Miami, was only able to sign for three years and $16.5 million with the Chiefs. All things considered, Grimes was smart to wait out the market. He’s making more than Talib and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who also got a one-year, $5 million contract.

For the Atlanta Falcons, the rise to finishing the puzzle has been one missing piece away for the past few years.
