The Falcons announced on their website Friday morning that they have placed the franchise tag on CB Brent Grimes.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said that the tag was applied to Grimes with the goal of working out a long-term deal for the veteran cornerback, who was expected to be one of the most sought-after corners in free agency.

Grimes, a two-year starter, had six interceptions in 2010 after nabbing five picks as a reserve in ’09. He was hampered by a knee injury in 2011 and finished with one interception for the season.

He was a Pro Bowler in 2010.
