CB Grimes Hoping He And Dolphins Can Agree On Multi-Year Deal

Brent Grimes

NFL Teams can use their franchise tags beginning next Tuesday, and cornerback Brent Grimes remains the Dolphins most likely candidate to get tagged.

Grimes hopes the Dolphins and agent Ben Dogra can come to a multi-year agreement instead, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Grimes said when the season ended that he wants to be here but prefers a multiyear deal. At 30, this could be his last big contract because cornerbacks typically don’t get big money as they get well into their 30s.

A franchise tag “is not what anybody wants,” Grimes said.

The Dolphins would be well-served to try to negotiate a multi-year deal with Grimes because the franchise tag for a cornerback has been estimated by CBSSports.com to be $11.2 million, and using it on Grimes would reduce the Dolphins’ cap space to around $20 million.
