Dolphins release CB Grimes

Fins part ways with cornerback


DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins are parting ways with cornerback Brent Grimes.

Grimes became expendable for the Dolphins when they traded for cornerback Byron Maxwell.

Grimes, 33, signed a 4-year contract in 2014.

That deal was worth $32 million.

Grimes was due $8 million this year.

By getting rid of Grimes, the Dolphins create $6.5 million in cap space.

Grimes was a Pro Bowler in 2015.

His wife Miko attracted attention for use of colorful language on twitter, often aimed at media members who criticized her husband.
