Miami Dolphins sign Pro Bowl corner Brent Grimes to four-year deal

March 3, 2014

The Miami Dolphins have had their fill of off-the-field controversy this year with the Incognito-Martin fiasco, but today the franchise took a positive step toward securing things on the field, re-signing Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes to a four-year contract, the team announced today.

“I am thrilled that we have been able to reach an agreement with Brent to keep him as a member of the Miami Dolphins,” said Dolphins General Manager Dennis Hickey. “Brent is a two-time Pro Bowler who has been a valuable piece to our organization as a player on the field, a leader in the locker room as well off the field in the South Florida community.”

During the 2013 season Grimes started all 16 games as a member of the Miami secondary en route to being selected to his second career Pro Bowl. He finished his first season with the Dolphins with 60 tackles, 17 passes defensed, and four interceptions, which included one he returned 94 yards for a touchdown on October 31st against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Over the course of his seven-year career he has appeared in 75 games with 59 starts, compiling 17 interceptions and 73 passes defensed. He was originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Atlanta Falcons on May 16, 2006. Grimes was also a 2010 Pro Bowl selection.

The 5-10, 183-pound Grimes joined Miami in 2013 after spending six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2007-12).
