BREAKING: Atlanta Falcons will Franchise Brent Grimes

Breaking news has been reported by the Official Radio Network of the Atlanta Falcons 790 The Zone in Atlanta: Brent Grimes. Thomas Dimitroff was live and confirmed that the Falcons would apply the tag to Grimes. The Franchise tag will cost the Falcons $10.6 million, which is significant cap space.

Hopefully he will get healthy again, and continue to be the ballhawk cover corner that we need him to be.
