After spending the past two seasons with the Bucs, veteran cornerback Brent Grimes has agreed to stay in Tampa Bay on a one-year deal worth $10-million.

Grimes, 34, was set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 14. The two sides were able to get a deal done before then.

The veteran cornerback has undoubtedly been the best player in the secondary for the Buccaneers since first signing with the Bucs in 2016. This move continues to provide a proven veteran for the younger corners — like Vernon Hargreaves III and Javien Elliot — to learn from.

Being that it is only a one-year deal, it’d be wise for the Buccaneers to continue to target a free agent cornerback like a Trumaine Johnson or E.J. Gaines.

Glanton also signs a one-year deal

Linebacker Adarius Glanton will also be returning after signing a one-year deal.

Glanton’s season was cut short in 2017 after suffering a leg injury against New Orleans. He finished the season with 31 combined tackles.
