Brent Grimes “Cautiously Optimistic” About A Multi-Year Deal With The Dolphins

Dolphins impending free agent CB Brent Grimes tells Chris Perkins of The Sun Sentinel that he’s “cautiously optimistic” the two sides will get a multi-year agreement in place in the next few weeks.

“I’m optimistic,” Grimes said, per Perkins. “It seems like some things can happen, but like I said you never know with this.”

Ian Rapoport reported a few days ago that the franchise tag is “not realistic” for Dolphins.

Many have assumed that the franchise tag would be placed on Grimes if they were unable to get a long-term deal worked out before the start of free agency, so this news came as a bit of a surprise.

The Dolphins have plenty of cap space to with as they are projected to have over $36 million at their disposal this offseason, but a multi-year contract would at least offer them a more reasonable cap figure in 2014.

Should Grimes be available to reach the open market, he’s almost certain to have plenty of interest.

Grimes, 30, put together a great season that earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl. He tallied 60 tackles, four interceptions including one for a touchdown, and 16 pass defenses. He was also the No. 2 cornerback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

We have him listed as the No. 11 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
