Tampa Bay Buccaneers Q&A: What’s the plan with CBs?
Q: Is there a reason why the Bucs have not inquired about Brent Grimes? To me he seems like a good fit that would not break the bank. Also, with all of the good cornerbacks in free agency why haven't they addressed their needs yet?

A: Tampa Bay's pursuit of upgrades at the corner are linked in many ways to the resolution of the Darrelle Revis situation. They are looking at Grimes, but he is coming off a serious injury that could impact his best asset - his athleticism. Until the Bucs know whether Revis is theirs, they're not going to be ultra-aggressive in signing free agent cornerbacks. This process could take awhile.
