Post Grimes believes Dolphins are “building something great”
For the first time since the Dolphins won the AFC East, I was able to tell my Dad that the team is looking like they may be playoff competitive this year. That may still be overshooting their talent, but there is finally hope for the fans.

Grimes believes Dolphins are “building something great”

After nearly three weeks as a free agent, cornerback Brent Grimes opted to leave the Falcons for the Dolphins.

Why the Dolphins?

“I picked Miami because I think they are building something great here and I would love to be a part of it,” Grimes said Saturday, via the team’s official website. “They really showed a lot of interest in having me here. That played a major role in me deciding to come to Miami.”

Before Grimes can do much of anything for the Dolphins, he needs to get healthy again after tearing an Achilles tendon during the first game of the 2012 regular season.

“I am doing great,” Grimes said. “I am really encouraged by this rehab. I look it as a challenge and I respond well to challenges and I am 100 percent confident that I will be straight in no time. . . .

“I don’t have any restrictions right now. I am running and everything. It’s just building up your strength and everything. That’s part of the process, but I have plenty of time. With the offseason workouts and getting everything in shape, I will be great.”

Grimes will replace Sean Smith, who signed a three-year contract earlier this month in Kansas City. He’s the latest new arrival on a list that includes receiver Mike Wallace, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, linebacker Philip Wheeler, receiver Brandon Gibson, tight end Dustin Keller, guard Lance Louis, and defensive tackle Vaughn Martin.

At least this regime is selling their plan well.
Or this regime is paying the most money.
Both are reasons to believe (as a player) that they're building something great.

Good to hear. I'd be surprised if others players don't feel the same way

Those videos Finhead34 posted on the other thread certainly look like Grimes is coming along nicely in his PT

No sarcasm. I think most players have to look at what has been done here & see an improvement.
My point is lets say he had signed with the Bills , when asked about the division one would have to say the Patriots are the Patriots , the Jets are the Jets but Miami with all the signings are much improved.

Now it would be kinda cool if a guy said that the team he had just signed with has no chance of winning but they gave him the best offer.

If we draft well and Brady starts to lose a little which i can see because their oline is nothing great we can have a great future here

All of these players (Grimes, Keller, etc.) that signed one year deals are esentially trying out for the team this year. We're basically loaning them for a season. If they play well and have an impact, I think we'll try to retain them. If not, we can always replace them in next years draft. But they all fill areas of need right now, and free us up to go best player available in most rounds of the draft. Unless we sign Winston, I think now we'll probably lean towards drafting another offensive lineman.
