Although some teams were allegedly frightened off by his wife’s antics, Tampa Bay Bucs signed free agent DB Brent Grimes to a 2 year, $16.5 million deal. The Pro Bowler had been released Wednesday by the Dolphins shortly after their acquisition of Byron Maxwell from the Philadelphia Eagles.
The move looks to shore up a secondary that struggled last season, giving up 31 touchdowns through the air, which was the 5th most in the NFL. Corners Alterraun Verner and Johnathan Banks were at times benched through the course of the year. It is expected that Grimes will compete for a starting job.
