Grimes, 32, has established himself as one of the league’s better corners over the past decade. The ten-year pro, who started his career with Atlanta before playing in Miami from 2013 to 2015, has been selected to four Pro Bowls, including the past three in a row. He was considered one of the top cornerbacks to hit free agency by NFL.com in their free agent rankings.
Over the course of his career, Grimes has intercepted 26 passes, including 13 over the past three seasons. He has started 90 games and earned 420 tackles.
The announcement comes after the Bucs signed guard J.R. Sweezy on Thursday and re-signed Doug Martin the day before.
