Falcons Will Not Allow CB Brett Grimes To Become Available

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Falcons will most likely be using their franchise tag on Grimes to prevent him from hitting the open market.

Dan Pompei of the¬†National Football Post reports that the Atlanta Falcons aren’t going to allow CB Brent Grimes to leave in the coming weeks.

The Falcons have every intention of making sure he goes nowhere,” writes Pompei, “and are likely to do whatever is necessary to make that happen.”

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff seemed to be optimistic that they could come to a long-term agreement but Atlanta still has their franchise tag in their pocket if needed.

Grimes would draw plenty of interest on the open market and would most likely be the best available option at the position.
