Atlanta's attempt to re-sign cornerback Brent Grimes has gotten more competitive.

As first reported on Twitter by FOXSports.com, Grimes completed his second free-agent visit Saturday with the Cleveland Browns. He met with the Miami Dolphins on Friday.

Grimes, 29, was designated Atlanta's franchise player in 2012. However, Grimes tore his Achilles tendon in the season-opener and was placed on injured reserve.

If signed by Cleveland, Grimes would team with Joe Haden as the starting cornerbacks. Grimes also would upgrade a Miami secondary that lost cornerback Sean Smith in free agency to Kansas City.

The Falcons want Grimes back, especially after releasing Dunta Robinson before the start of the free-agent signing period. Robinson has since signed with the Chiefs.
