The Cleveland Browns hosted former all pro corner-back Brent Grimes walk out of Cleveland? Grimes is coming back from a serious injury to his leg. Chances are he is a little rusty and the Browns can't afford to take a chance on a corner that may not be back to 100%. Grimes had other teams showing interest in him and the Falcons could also be waiting to see if they can resign him.
By not making Grimes an offer he couldn't refuse it shows the team may have some reservations about him. There are a lot of corner-backs in this years NFL draft the Browns may be considering. The list of corners coming out of college this year is more impressive than some think. Cleveland has to fix the problems in their defensive secondary that is a given. Watching the team let Grimes get out of Cleveland without a deal shows me the team is using some discipline in free agency.
It is good to see they aren't just jumping to get a warm body, especially one that may need time to readjust to playing after suffering a achilles tendon injury. It will be interesting to see what the Browns do come April 26th.
