Falcons CB Brent Grimes signed his franchise tender on Tuesday, the team announced.

In Grimes’ five seasons with Atlanta, he has 56 passes defensed and 13 interceptions. Last season, Grimes started all 12 games in which he played and had 14 passes defensed, one pick and one forced fumble.

The franchise tender gives Grimes a guaranteed salary of $10.2 million for 2012.

The Falcons started their offseason program on Monday. Grimes’ signing comes hours after Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported the Falcons are interested in trading for Eagles CB Asante Samuel.
