Brent Omar Grimes is an American football cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. He was originally signed by the Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2006. He played college football at Shippensburg University.
Earlier today, I spoke with CineSports’ Noah Coslov about the Falcons’ big win in Kansas City and the pyrotechnics going on with Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the team’s new aggressive offensive scheme. Then, of course, the news broke later in the day about cornerback Brent Grimes being lost for the season with a torn Achilles.

So, before we get to the video, a few words about Grimes. This has to be devastating for him personally, not just the Falcons. A torn Achilles is a difficult injury to come back from, particularly for a smallish cornerback who relies so much on his speed and leaping ability.

Grimes, remember, could not come to an agreement with the Falcons on a multi-year contract, so he ultimately took the only other option available: He signed the $10.431 million franchise tender. I know nobody is going to cry for an athlete making that much money, but this is why NFL players hate the process of tendering. Grimes has no security beyond this season, and his market value obviously will be much lower than if he had played a full season and was effective in doing so.
