Ouch. Haven't seen him play much but accordign to falcon fans on here he's one of the better corners in the league. Big Loss.

That's most likely his last time we will see him in a Falcons uniform, I wonder if we still have to pay his franchise tender.

Tough blow for the Falcons. Especially considering how it is a pass happy league now.

Dude kills the Saints.

I never have and never will celebrate a player injury, but there's no denying that this will help the Saints as they try to win the division.

Tough break for Grimes, he'll bounce back hopefully.

I don't know about better in the league, I will say that Grimes is very underrated.

If he was 3 inches taller, he'd be an All-Pro. Huge loss.

Tough loss.

How did Asante play in game 1?

The acquisition of Samuel is even a bigger move now with the loss of Grimes of the year.

Why don't you think he'll remain a Falcon?

Anyway, this is a big loss for Atlanta. Grimes is one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the league and he's easily one of the best players on their defense.

This...

Grimey has always been overlooked his entire career. Should have been a D1 player but didn't have the grades. All he did was dominate the PSAC(granted not at a time in which it was what it is now) and turned it into making the league. Then he turned it into becoming one of the 10 best corners in the league. Period. If you don't think he's 12th at worst you're not watching enough games...

I remember my first day on campus at Kutztown. Grimes and Shippensburg were playing against us that day and he dominated the entire game. His cousin annoyingly sat on the KU side of the stands instigating our entire crowd... But we couldn't say anything because the kid backed it up.

Yes, Victor Cruz is a bigger asset to a QB than Antonio Brown is. Id be hard-pressed to find many people that would take the latter.

Youch.

The Falcons don't have much depth in the secondary, as I recall. This could hurt their defense a lot... Grimes is their best defensive back.
