NFL News: CB Brent Grimes visits Browns

FoxSports.com is reporting free agent cornerback Brent Grimes made a visit to Browns’ headquarters in Berea this past week.

Grimes played in only one game last year due to a torn Achilles’ tendon, but started in 28 games for the Falcons the prior two years. If healthy Grimes is regarded by many as the top cornerback on the market. Grimes also paid a visit to the high spending Dolphins this past week and it is believed that the Falcons are still trying to retain his services. When healthy in 2011, Grimes was 10th among corners in success rate.1

Grimes is the top optionleft for the Browns to replace Sheldon Brown as a starter opposite Joe Haden and make a splash in the cornerback market.

    Did the packers re-sign shields? He is only 25 and would probably be a cheaper and safer option compared to grimes

    Not yet but they did just put a second round tender on him. Not sure he’d be worth the lost draft pick
