Grimes is the best of what's left. This guy is hit or miss. I could see him being awesome, or being the opposite of awesome. We're so damned desperate for a CB, it seems like our FO has to take a chance and sign him. I wonder how many years Grimes wants in his contract, how much guaranteed money.

I don't know if i buy that.

The article said he wants to mull over his decisions. I would assume that if we didn't offer him a contract, then there wouldn't be much to think about.


Mulling over being a primary player and earn more money for the Browns while trying to break .500, or a lower level player earning less money for the Falcons while trying to win a Super Bowl ring....

Again, love him to come to Cleveland, but if not I hope he stands in Atlanta....


Well here you go...

Apparently he hasn't taken any offers from anyone yet.


Interesting...

Him being very patient and trying to find the right fit...

Teams scared about the injury - even though reports are all very positive?


I hope he doesn't go to the fish...

@hornbybrown The furthest source from the situation Reporting Browns/Grimes deal gets done today.

I thought that this was a pretty objective article breaking down how players perform after Achilles tears. It is from a small sample, but I think it projects what we could realistically expect from Grimes in terms of production. Your thoughts?

I read that on Sunday, and I found what I took away from it was that it tempered my expectations. I still want Grimes because he's probably the best CB prospect left in FA and I think it's insane to go into the draft without a viable option at #2, but I don't think if we get him that he'll make our secondary as good as it would have been if we had gotten Keenan Lewis.

I think the Duke study is a little dated because the data collected on average is almost a decade old. I'd like to see a study on the advances in sports medicine in the past decade. I think even if Grimes has lost a step, he would be a big upgrade to our DB group and could possibly be our answer at safety. I'd say sigh him to a 3 yr deal that allows us to cut him with a minimal cap hit if he is not able to perform at a productive level in the future.

The guy from PFC still seems to think that the Browns will sign Grimes.

In regards to the draft I could care less whether this guy signs or not. He is over 30 coming off a major knee injury, so we still need to draft a CB high in the draft. It is simply too big of a risk not to have a backup plan.

29 and coming off Achilles' injury -- which certainly isn't a whole lot better -- methinks.

I don't know why some people think the Achilles is in the knee?

Mere than one person I've seen this from.

Whoops. I was thinking patellar tendon for some reason which is one of the more destructive injuries for football players right up there if not worse than the achillies injury has been.

It was an honest mistake being up so late. Trust me if anyone should know about these injuries it is me considering I had my entire left leg rebuilt after my car accident in 2005.
