The Miami Dolphins announced Saturday that they have signed cornerback Brent Grimes.

"We are very excited that we were able to reach an agreement with Brent,”  Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland said. “His experience and history of play making production will add a great deal to our secondary."

 

Grimes joins Miami after spending the last six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, where he played in 59 games with 43 starts.

Grimes was a Pro Bowl selection in 2010, but is working his way back from an Achilles injury that has his availability, at least for off-season work, in question for now.

“I am doing great. I’m doing everything. It’s just about getting all of your strength back to where you were before," Grimes said. "As far as…I don’t have any restrictions right now. My workouts…if you look on the internet, my wife is always putting up videos of me doing stuff (laughing). I am doing great. I am really encouraged by this rehab. I look it as a challenge and I respond well to challenges and I am 100% confident that I will be straight in no time.”
