As was the case with many other outlets, we ran with D. Orlando Ledbetter's Atlanta Journal-Constitution report that Brent Grimes had re-signed with the Atlanta Falcons on a one year deal.
This is DOL's latest Tweet:
Misread a text: Grimes has not reached a one year deal with the #Falcons— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@AJCFalcons) March 13, 2013
At this point, Grimes has not re-signed. He may be heading to another team. He may sign for a one year deal tomorrow. We don't know, and we may not know for a while. Assume nothing with him until a team announces he's been signed, at this point.
I apologize. We're in the analysis and being fans business, not the reporting business, and while we try to vet reports to the greatest extent we can, we're going on faith with the outlets we trust. I know many of you aren't fond of DOL, but mistakes do happen, and I'm relatively certain this is the case here. This is not the first time in my six-plus years with the site that this has happened, and it may not be the last, but I promise we'll always correct the record as fast as we possibly can.
No matter what happens from here on out, best of luck to Brent Grimes. Also, I heard the Falcons signed a unicorn.
