MIAMI (AP) - Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes has signed a four-year contract to remain with the Miami Dolphins.
With the deal announced Monday, the Dolphins achieved one of their biggest offseason priorities by avoiding the loss of Grimes in free agency.
The 30-year-old Grimes had four interceptions and played in all 16 games for the Dolphins last year after they signed him to a one-year contract. He spent six years with the Atlanta Falcons and missed almost all of the 2012 season with an Achilles tendon injury.
Grimes also made the Pro Bowl in 2010. He has 59 career starts and 17 interceptions.
