Thank You Brent Grimes!

Unlike most here i understand that football is a business/career and that you should get as much money as possible while you can.

All of these NFL teams will cut you in a heartbeat when you get older, no matter how good you were for the team or how badly YOU want to stay with the team (see Abraham/Urlacher/Ed Reed).

Sad thing is most people that are scorning you for taking more money are the same people that would leave jobs in a heartbeat if someone offered them 10-20k more per year.

Anyway now that i got out of the way i want to Thank You for all your hard work. No matter what these people say when healthy you were our best corner and most exciting corner to watch.

I wish you the best of luck with the Dolphines (except when you play the Falcons).

Sincerely a falcons fan with a brain.

For the haters i am just gonna leave this here for you.

No thanks, I'm sure we offered more last year and you didn't want it. You finally signed your franchise tender and made $10 million last year for play three quarters of one game for the entire season.

Thanks for wasting that money and not coming back

Do you feel the same way about Abe? What about Walker?

Like it was his fault he got injured, like You would say hey i got injured guys i dont want this 10 mil anymore.

Logic you have none.

Like you would work for 7 an hour if someone offered you 15 an hour. People should have to pass IQ test to be able to post on this msg board.

Thank you for giving this undersized and unheralded team a chance to develop and prove itself when no one else did. Oh wait, I think I mixed something up there. happy.png

But seriously, thanks for the two and a half exceptional seasons. And specificaly for what you did to Breesus.

Thank You for going to Miami !!! We would rather have the extra 3rd round pick next season.

Grimes showed his class by leaving Atlanta, self centered players have no place on this team. We need more players like Mud Duck that are willing to work without constantly asking for a raise. Someone who wants to stay on the same team, and retire a Falcon for life. Do you think Miami is going to give him a press conference at the end of his career? Do you think he's ever going to make a "Ring of Honor" now? Some things are more valuable than inflating money.

You showed your class (or lack there of) in all of this.

Some of you are pathetic. Did I want Grimes back? Sure. Did I hope he'd take less to stay here? Sure. Do I fault him for taking 5.5 million tax free dollars over what we were able to offer him? No. You'd love to see loyalty out of guys, but even Abraham isn't going to take less than he thinks he's worth to play here, regardless of how much he loves the team and city, and he does. If he would, he'd be back already.

Good luck to Grimes, bad taste in women and all. Hi, Miko!

I agree with this, the wife part is not relevant.

I won't lie here OP I would have loved to seen a season with Grimes Assante Decoud and Moore manning that secondary.

I'm sure that highlight footage would have grown 2 fold in doing so.

But I do take Ryne15s point also I'm pretty sure TD offered him a multi year deal with us last year but he took the tag money instead now I don't begrudge the man for taking the money but I think it would have been a better option for him to have resigned last year and locked himself up financially for the next probably 4 odd years.

Theres nothing like security in your future as a pro.Come this time next year he'll be shopping his wears again and if he doesn't play well this season he's pretty much done as a pro.
