Dolphins have re-signed CB Brent Grimes

The Miami Dolphins have re-signed cornerback Brent Grimes. It isn’t too surprising since Grimes had expressed a fondness for Miami and a desire to stay and he was looking to avoid the franchise tag.

I like it here. I like the coaches, I like the players and it’s a good team,” Grimes said, via ESPN.com. “Obviously, we didn’t finish how we wanted to and close out the season well. But I just let my agents handle everything. If [the Dolphins] want to keep me here, they’ll see how it goes.”

According to The Miami Herald:

The Dolphins would be well-served to try to negotiate a multi-year deal with Grimes because the franchise tag for a cornerback has been estimated by CBSSports.com to be $11.2 million, and using it on Grimes would reduce the Dolphins’ cap space to around $20 million.

It looks like Grimes got both his wishes.
