Miami Dolphins Re-Sign Brent Grimes

The Dolphins new General Manager Dennis Hickey has passed his first test with the signing of arguably Miami's most prominent cog scheduled to hit the free agency market.

Hickey signed the two time Pro Bowler Brent Grimes to a four year contract for what is said to be 32 million dollars of which 16 million is guaranteed. The Hickey and Grimes agreement avoided the 4pm Free Agent tag deadline of 11.5 million for 2014, and kept the Dolphins from having to enter a free agent bidding war for his highly sought after services.

The corner back covered the oppositions number one receiver on practically every 2013 play and didn't allow a single touchdown while leading the Dolphins with four interceptions. He is a Premiere NFL corner back of high character with much desired leadership qualities and is now in place to instill those attributes to the young cast of Dolphin corner backs as well as the entire defense and/or team.

Since 2010 among corner backs, Grimes ranks third in "coverage grade" behind only the NFL's absolute premiere corner backs of Seattle's Richard Shermann and Tampa Bays Darrell Revis.

Upon his signing Grimes said. "It's a 4-year deal. I wanted to be back but you never know in this business and when it all worked out I was happy"!

CONGRATULATIONS to Brent Grimes and General Manager Dennis Hickey on a job well done!!
