Brent Grimes will be manning the Dolphins' secondary for a few years to come.

Miami signed the 30-year-old cornerback to a multi-year extension, the team announced on Monday. The Dolphins did not disclose the terms of the deal, but a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that it is a four-year, $32 million deal, with $16 million guaranteed.

Grimes was a candidate for the franchise tag, but the sides were able to reach a long-term agreement before Monday's deadline.

Under the franchise tag, Grimes would have made $11.834 million this year, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

After six seasons with the Falcons, Grimes signed with the Dolphins as a free agent before last season. He made 60 tackles, deflected 16 passes and had four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.
