    Dan Parr of Pro Football Weekly reports that a team source believes that the Atlanta Falcons will allow free agent CB Brent Grimes to sign with another team during free agency. Grimes is seen as the Falcons top cornerback but unfortunately underwent knee surgery back in November and four of the teams final five games as well as the last weeks playoff game against the New York Giants. Atlanta feels that their combination of Dominique Franks and Chris Owens will allow them to deal with the loss of Grimes. Obviously they could consider adding a more affordable option at some point during free agency and possibly the draft.

  2. this is a crazy decision. He is without question their best CB.

    are they trying to destroy this team.


    I'd take him. I'd just not re-sign Eric Wright. Com'onnnnnnnn Grimes. Oh wait...we probably don't have the cap room. I still can't believe this is happening, is Atlanta taking crazy pills?!?!

    I think they need to focus more on their offense. I mean really 2 points?
  6. The article also says the Falcons were disappointed that Grimes didn't play in the Wild Card game despite practicing late in the week.

    Grimes is their best DB but he isn't an elite talent and not worth his asking price.

    Grimes to me is alot like Carlos Rogers, not going to get all those turnovers, but is pretty good at what he does.

    how is letting your good players walk a formula for winning a super bowl? maybe dimitroff knows something we don't but i don't see how this would get them closer to winning a championship.
