Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland told reporters Thursday that CB Brent Grimes (Achilles' surgery) is far enough along that he's "close" to being a participant in the club's offseason conditioning program.
Assuming Ireland's words can be taken at face value, Grimes should be all systems go before training camp. "He’s doing really well," said Ireland. "He’s almost to the point where he’s ready to participate in the offseason conditioning program." The Dolphins are counting on Grimes to be a starter this year.
