Brent Grimes Exceeding Miami Dolphins’ Expectations

Coming off Achilles’ tendon surgery in a soft cornerback market, Brent Grimes was able to score a one-year, $5.5 million contract from the Miami Dolphins earlier this offseason.

The Dolphins believe they have a bargain on their hands after Grimes turned in the most impressive offseason performance on the team, shutting down Mike Wallace and showing a knack for knocking away passes.

“Every day Brent Grimes does something where we’re like, ‘that guy is a freak athletically.’ Blows my mind,” tight end Charles Clay told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “He has the quarterbacks saying, ‘I’m not going to throw to that guy.'”

Wallace testified that Grimes is one of the most athletic players he’s seen, while head coach Joe Philbin praised the cornerback’s instincts and competitiveness.
