Grimes Still Grimes

August 13th, 2018

No sign of wear or tear.

If Brent Grimes is still nursing an injury, it sure doesn’t show.

Today the ageless wonder and Bucs’ corner returned to the practice fields of One Buc Palace, this time in pads, for the first time in two weeks.  Grimes looked every bit the stud he has been with the Bucs.

It only took one play to see that Grimes is New Orleans-ready.

In a seven-on-seven drill, speedy DeSean Jackson blew down the right sideline and Grimes was with him step by step. When the ball from America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, came down — it was a well-placed pass — Grimes got between the ball and Jackson, sort of boxed out Jackson, and hauled the ball in without missing a beat or a step.

Grimes got such a kick out of this play, he circled back to the defensive huddle in a wide path sticking his arms out in celebration as if he was about to greet his wife Miko after a long absence.

Yeah, Grimes, 35, is back. And he seems just as good as he was before.

    Can’t tell if it was like that when the ball was released, but by time you see them come into frame, it’s clear that Grimes has inside position and leverage.

    So that ball should be placed to the outside where only Djax could make a play on it.

    Agree it was a well placed pass. Looks like DJax gave up on the play. Not worried about either of these two, though.

    Cue the panic cause Jameis threw a pick….can set your watches by these tools.

    Grimes is the man. One of the most underrated players across the league. That s what happens when you play for Mike Smith half of your career… go unnnoticed.

    LOL at anyone criticizing the location of the pass. All we see when Grimes and DJax come into view is Grimes reaching out for it and DJax looking at Grimes trying to get up on him.

    Grimes has mad ball skills.

    WOOOOOOOO! Love it!

    DJax was like – “eh – F__k It! I’m not fighting for that ball”… Better not do that in a game DeSean.

    It was only practice, but it does reiterate my saying the Jackson will never fight for a ball. With his speed , he easily could’ve cut across the face of Grimes. Saw this happen a few times in games last year. But again, it’s practice so hopefully he’s as Pick said above, and Jackson just said “f it”. Great to see Grimes make the play, hes still got it if he can give us one more season.

    Sweet. Nice coverage. We got a good, deep corp of DBs. Very pleased.

    Cliches are cliches for a reason. I know it’s a well worn phrase but Grimes just has “a nose for the ball”. He can get caught out of position…be in position..whatever..when the ball arrives it’s like he has some inner radar that picks it up.

    And Conte was only two steps late. Pretty good for him and he’s lucky Grimes was on it. Conte in Italian means slow reaction time.
