Brent Grimes Headshot

Grimes, who played in 94 percent of the defensive snaps in his first Bucs season, triggered an extra $1 million in incentives in his contract as a result, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 33-year-old corner turned in an above-average campaign overall, snagging four interceptions and notching 24 passes defensed overall. His durability -- which was evidenced by the fact he only missed 64 snaps all season -- allowed him to supplement his base salary in relatively robust fashion. He'll have an even better opportunity to earn bonuses in 2017, as the second year of his contract calls for the veteran ballhawk to earn a total of $1.5 million if he can log at least 80 percent of the snaps. Grimes is a near-lock to reprise his starting cornerback job next season opposite promising second-year player Vernon Hargreaves, given both his solid play and the lack of experienced depth at the position.
