In response to TheFoe13's comment:
Grimes > Talib. i would rather have the former than the latter anyway of the week. Despite what many here think, Talib is not that good... that's why the pats were the only team who wanted him. it is also why they got him on the cheap from TB.
While the achilles injury is scary Grimes is on pace to be ready before training camp starts and i hear excellent things about his rehab. 5.5 for the best CB on the market was a steal for Miami. They continue to get better while we continue to get worse IMO..
You're wrong. The Skins were one team confirmed who wanted Talib and the report was that there were 2 others also interested.
Meanwhile, Grimes had Atlanta interested, Cleveland and Miami. He shopped himself bewteen the two AFC teams with cash (Miami and Cleveland) and went to the highest bidder.
Grimes is a fine player, but overachieved one year in 2011 on the perimeter. He's really a nickel.
Talib is a perimeter player which is what we HAD to have here.
You must be a Dolphins troll because even a moron could see what Talib's presence did to the Pats D overall. It opened up a whole new dimenison in terms of scheming. Arrington got kicked inside and played the 2nd best nickel in the NFL for about 6 weeks.
Miami has overpaid across the board for every single player they've signed. 5 million for a nickelback or dwarf perimeter CB off an Achilles is overpaying, but they had to do something after no one could even name who their starters were going to be in 2013.
Either way, you're a troll because you have posts start today and aren't accruate assessments. Sort of odd you're claiming Miami who overpays with splashes like this every 4 years is somehow a better approach than what BB does.
Miami had 45M in cap space this year. The Pat's would have had that much too if they hadn't wasted 23M in DEAD money last year, from signing the Ocho's and Fat Alberts of the world. They also would have had more draft picks this year for the same reason.
What a waste of TB's hard earned cap space he handed BB on a platter.
