The Miami Dolphins locked up one of the best cornerbacks in the league earlier this week when they agreed to a new four-year contract with Brent Grimes. Having joined the Dolphins last year on a one-year contract worth just under $5.5 million, the new deal was reportedly worth $32 million. Thanks to OverTheCap.com we now have the specifics of Grimes' deal.

The contract includes $16 million fully guaranteed, $6 million of which is the signing bonus. The other $10 million is Grimes' 2014 salary, which is $2.5 million, and a portion of his 2015 salary ($7.5 million of the $8.5 million).
