The Bucs have had a plan all along. Everyone has been trying to figure what exactly they are up to, not signing any help for their secondary. But it seems like they are working how they work, quietly. Free agent cornerback Brent Grimes has drawn interest from a couple teams during free agency. It was reported erroneously last week that he had re-signed with the Falcons. Now it appears he has been talking with the Bucs as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes. The Plan B remains Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes, who has drawn interest from the Dolphins and the Browns.  The Bucs and Grimes are, we’re told, talking — and if/when the Buccaneers land the Falcons’ 2012 franchise player, the Bucs will be out of the Revis business. One thing to note here is why, from Grimes’ position, would he be waiting on signing with a team? Wouldn’t that kind of stance lower his value? Could he be waiting to see if the Bucs acquire Darrelle Revis? Perhaps Tampa Bay is trying to pair both of them in their secondary? OK I may be pushing it there. Still, you have to ask these questions and it appears the Bucs may have some tricks up their sleeves they are not sharing. After all, there have been some whispers on the Bucs trying to do something big. Maybe this is it. The post The Bucs and Brent Grimes are talking appeared first on The Bay Cave.
