Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Snares first interception of training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Grimes snatched his first interception of training camp Friday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Grimes went up high to make a beautiful leaping grab of a Jameis Winston deep ball intended for Donteea Dye, a play that was preceded by a deflection of a throw to Russell Shepard down the right sideline earlier in the session. The offseason acquisition is expected to bring precisely that type of ball-hawking presence to a Bucs secondary that allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete a league-high 70 percent of their passes in 2015.

Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Snatches interception on opening day of OTAs on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimes grabbed an interception in the Bucs' opening day of OTAs on Tuesday, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports.

The veteran free-agent signee got things off on the right foot during the opening OTA session, snatching an interception and also getting his hands on the ball on several other occasions. Grimes has extensive experience in new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme, having played under the latter in Atlanta from 2008-2012. The 32-year-old will try to regain the form that allowed him to grab 13 picks over the last three seasons with the Dolphins.

Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Signs a two-year deal with Buccaneers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Grimes has agreed to a two-year deal worth $16.5 million with the Buccaneers, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

Grimes has released by the Dolphins earlier in the week after spending three seasons with the team. Last season he played in 15 games, recording 49 tackles and four interceptions. The nine-year veteran played under current Bucs defensive coordinator Mike Smith from 2008-2012 during a portion of the latter's head coaching stint, tallying 13 interceptions and 56 passes defensed over that span. Before an inconsistent 2015 campaign in South Florida, Grimes had also posted nine interceptions and two touchdowns over his first two seasons with the Dolphins. The 32-year-old is expected to bring stability and play-making ability to a Bucs secondary that surrendered the fifth-most passing touchdowns in the league last season (31), and a league-worst 70 percent completion percentage to opposing quarterbacks.

Dolphins' Brent Grimes: Expected to be released
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Grimes is expected to be released by the Dolphins, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Grimes was reportedly approached to restructure the four-year, $32 million contract he signed in 2014, but prefers to be released and become an unrestricted free agent. In cutting the 32-year-old Grimes, the Dolphins would free up $6.5 million in salary-cap space, opening room for them to potentially acquire pricey cornerback Byron Maxwell from the Eagles.

Dolphins' Brent Grimes: May not be back next season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Grimes, who finished the season with 49 tackles and four interceptions, is not a lock to remain in Miami next season.

Grimes would be in the third year of a four-year contract and could be a salary-cap casualty. Grimes wasn't the player in 2015 that he was in 2014 and with all kinds of off-field distractions (his wife blaming Ryan Tannehill for what ails Miami among other comments), the new coaching staff may find it best to just cut bait and move on.
