Falcons Willing To Allow CB Brent Grimes To Leave Via Free Agency?

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wonders whether or not CB Brent Grimes still has a role in the Falcons’ secondary next season.

Ledbetter notes that Atlanta already has a lot of cash tied up in their secondary, which could result in them allowing Grimes to leave via free agency.

Safety William Moore will be an unrestricted free agent as well, so they may want to keep their solid pair safeties in place as both of them will be attending this year’s Pro Bowl.

Grimes, 29, has been a very solid corner in recent years, but he was lost for the season after he suffered an Achilles tendon injury this season, so there are concerns beyond financial considerations.

We have Grimes listed as the No. 17 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

  • Grimes was noted for being a small cornerback who was very athlectic and could jump real high. But with that achilles injury, I’m not for sure about his leaping ability and quickness. Plus being twenty nine years old, has to be a factor for the Atlanta Falcons.

      I agree with everything you just mentioned. Very unfortunate injury for Grimes to suffer given the timing and the other factors.

  • Samir

    wow, he’s a great player. Im sure others will be willing to spend for him. Think he would be great in New Orleans

    • NFL Trade Rumors

      He’s defiantly an interesting free agent. Plenty of talent, but he is coming off of a serious injury, so any team considering an offer would be wise to limit the amount of guaranteed cash included in his deal.
