Okay.

Miami overpaid Grimes at 5.5 million.

Quote:
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Asomugha agreed to a one-year contract worth as much as $3 million.

If Asomugha is going to bounce-back, San Francisco is the place to do it, but it's possible his physical skills have eroded to the point he can no longer be even a serviceable player. Asomugha is going on age 32 and was burnt as regularly as any cornerback in football last season in Philadelphia

Asomugha was the 101st ranked corner in 2012 according to PFF.

He was targetted 66 times, allowed 44 completions for 698 yards, 5 TDs and 1 INT. That is a QB rating of 120.6.

Grimes is younger, and was playing at a much higher level than Asamougha was before the injury. If he's participating at OTAs and he's ready to go for training camp, then I don't see a big problem with our deal.

I'll bet he blows out another knee before training camp is over. He's the worst ever ever

Why do I smell a troll?

Yea, I know he had a rough yr last year. Just saying Grimes coming off his injury is worth almost double? Just pointing it out.

He had a rough year the year before as well, ranked 88th overall while Grimes was ranked 3rd overall.

Asomugha is a rapidly declining player.

Grimes may or may not be. We'll know more by training camp.

Is he rapidly declining or just did not fit in Philly? I'm sure he is not the player he was 2 Yrs ago, but find it extremely rare that he was so great in '10, but in '11 he had lost so much. Right now I have to look at a player who chased the money, but found he did not fit in.

Which is why I said. Double? Miami is paying double for may or may not?

In 2010 he was ranked 28th overall. Certainly a huge drop off from 2010 to 2011. Grimes was 10th overall by the way.

I'd pay double for may or may not over probably won't.

It is a calculated risk by the Dolphins and the rate of success for players coming off these types of injuries is higher than it was even 10 years ago (see Yeremiah Bell as a recent Dolphins example).

I like Grimes. Just found it odd on the double dollar amount considering both are coming with huge questions marks. Which is what I was surprised when it was reported he signed a 1 Yr deal for 5.5. I thought he would be in the 3 million range also.

Rather have Grimes than the problem child/injury prone Talib..And he got the same.

One years deals for quality usually is a little high...Asomugha is soft..He is a speed guy that is getting old

And Sean Smith got $6 mil a year... which is befuddling considering his lack of productivity.

Forget his measureables, the guy's head is somewhere else when he is in the game.

Hey Phin nice to hear from you again. Just post under Phin instead of a made up name, stop trolling, you aren't fishing.
