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.
