CB Brent Grimes Feels He’ll Be Back In Miami In 2014

Brent Grimes

Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes said today he’s optimistic but not certain that he will re-sign with Miami, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

He said his agent Ben Dogra has spoken to the Dolphins a few times.

“I’m pretty optimistic,” he said. “They said they like me here and want to have me back. Hopefully, it happens sooner than later, and I don’t have to worry about it.”

Grimes said the Dolphins have not discussed slapping him with the franchise tag, which likely will top $11 million. “Nobody wants to get franchise tag, another one-year deal.”

The deadline to use the franchise tag is next Monday. But even if a player is given the tag, negotiations on a contract can continue, and the tag can be lifted, until mid-July.
