Morning take: Brent Grimes reaction

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel says the signing of Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes speaks well of the Dolphins.

Morning take: Dolphins fans can finally use some good news, and this was it. Grimes is Miami’s biggest free agent, and he’s signed for the next four years.

  • Former Dolphins cornerback Sam Madison tells the team site he likes the signing of Grimes.

Morning take: From one good corner to another, Madison can appreciate what Grimes brings to the table. This was a wise signing for a player who proved his worth last season.

Morning take: New general manager Dennis Hickey did not use the tag to keep any of his free agents. With Grimes in the fold, there was no other player Hickey wanted to pay top-five money.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post wonders if Buffalo Bills free-agent safety Jairus Byrd could be an option for Miami.

Morning take: Byrd is a Pro Bowler who will not come cheap. The Dolphins just paid Reshad Jones last year and it would be tough to put major money into two safeties.
