According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Miami Dolphins won’t be able to use the franchise tag on cornerback Brent Grimes.
I’d assumed #Dolphins CB Brent Grimes was a candidate for franchise tag if a deal wasn’t done. But I’m told tag is not realistic at $11.3M

Grimes had a great season in 2013 after tearing his Achilles during his final season with the Falcons in 2012.
