Falcons Will Allow CB Brent Grimes To Leave

Dan Parr of Pro Football Weekly reports that a team source believes that the Atlanta Falcons will allow free agent CB Brent Grimes to sign with another team during free agency.

Grimes is seen as the Falcons top cornerback but unfortunately underwent knee surgery back in November and four of the teams final five games as well as the last weeks playoff game against the New York Giants.

Atlanta feels that their combination of Dominique Franks and Chris Owens will allow them to deal with the loss of Grimes. Obviously they could consider adding a more affordable option at some point during free agency and possibly the draft.

We have Grimes listed as the #20 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
