MIAMI (AP) - Cornerback Brent Grimes, who missed almost all of last season with an Achilles tendon injury, signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.
Grimes started 28 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2010-11 but was hurt in their opener last year. He declined to predict whether he'll be able to take part in offseason practices beginning in May.
``I don't have any restrictions right now,'' he said. ``I am running and everything. It's just building up your strength and everything. That's part of the process, but I have plenty of time. With the offseason workouts and getting everything in shape, I will be great.''
Grimes is expected to start for the Dolphins, who lost Sean Smith via free agency to the Kansas City Chiefs.
``I picked Miami because I think they are building something great here, and I would love to be a part of it,'' Grimes said.
He was undrafted and broke into the NFL with the Falcons in 2007. He has 13 career interceptions, while Smith has five in four seasons.
``We are very excited that we were able to reach an agreement with Brent,'' Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said. ``His experience and history of play making production will add a great deal to our secondary.''
