In fact, Cole says that the main reason the Dolphins asked Grimes to take a pay cut and later released him was because of his wife’s actions, which include making threats to reporters around the league.
Cole adds that Grimes is still viewed as a talented player who likely has something to offer a team, but apparently there are enough concerns about his wife to limit his pool of options.
Grimes, 32, was in the third year of his four-year, $32 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed when he released in a move that freed up $6.5 million in available cap space for the Dolphins just a few days ago.
In 2015, Grimes appeared in 15 games and recorded 48 tackles, four interceptions, and 14 pass defenses.
