    Rams have shown some interest in Brent Grimes (Bucs have too).

    He is a Les players....


    Brent Grimes - DB - Falcons

    Free agent CB Brent Grimes is drawing interest from the Rams and Bucs.
    One of the league's best corners in 2011, Grimes missed nearly all of 2012 after tearing his Achilles' tendon in Week 1. He'd be a worthy flier for a Bucs team in desperate need of remaking its NFL-worst secondary. His foot would be less clear in St. Louis, but as teams in learning in the new pass-happy NFL, you can never have too many solid corners.

    I really liked the play I saw from T. Johnson last year. He did make some rookie mistakes at times, but did enough that I would feel comfortable having him as our 3rd CB. I really wouldn't like spending our money on bringing in a veteran like Grimes, as it would hurt our cap situation, while taking playing time away from Johnson.

    For a bargain price as a replacement for Bradley Fletcher, I'd be good with Grimes.

    I'd like to add Grimes, very talented cover corner. The question is, for how much? I wouldn't be willing to go over 5 million, and considering he's coming off of a torn achilles, he may have to take it (as well as the overload of CB's there are in FA).

    Do you think he'd come as a bargain though? I remember him being at or near the top of the position before he was injured.

    Re: Rams Show Interest to CB Brent Grimes

    Grimes was Atlanta's franchise played last year, so he's a talented corner. But he might need to sign a one year deal to prove he's recovered from his injury. Still, it may not come cheap.

    I know the Rams' coaching staff has axed this talk in the past, but if the Rams had Finnegan, Jenkins, and Grimes at corner, it makes me wonder if they'd be more open to trying Trumaine Johnson at safety.

    Rams Show Interest to CB Brent Grimes

    ^^:sigh: What was the reasoning for us dropping Fletcher? I assume he wanted a deal we couldn't afford?

    I doubt it. Fletcher was in the Fisher doghouse the whole past season. I'm not sure what it was, but Fisher just did not want Fletcher out there. I'm thinking that Grimes is going to get more $$ than Fletcher, so that can't be the reason.

    Fletcher is a fairly solid cover guy but commits too many penalties without nabbing enough turnovers. AKA Ron Bartell part 2.

    Fletcher would be our fourth CB if signed, and Fisher and Snead would probably prefer to get a younger guy in through the late rounds of the draft rather than pay Fletcher

    Fletcher averaged almost 40 snaps a game up until the game against the Jets. After that, he averaged less than three. The three pass interference penalties against New England might have contributed.
