Grimes wasn't drafted, which makes this so much harder to take.

We got Grimes as an undrafted free agent (rookie) and I love the idea of getting the next Arian Foster for basically free--No draft pick, and low contract amount. Not saying Grimes is the next Foster...just saying that Grimes was a guy who could have been in at RB2 or RB3 at some point in the future, IMO.

This is a first, though: Teams know we know how to find talented RBs...so they will sit back and let us do the work. Sure, the OL and the scheme and everything around the team is what helps makes our RBs good, but still...teams are going to snag our PS RBs quite a bit for the next several years I'm afraid.

But hey, we kept Keo (a 4th string Safety and ST player) so it's all good. Keo is a roster spot killer, #$%@!
