Three Teams Reportedly Won’t Sign CB Brent Grimes Because Of His Wife’s Antics

Jason Cole of B/R spoke to three NFL GMs who said they would not sign free agent CB Brent Grimes because of his wife’s antics.

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.
