WATCH: Former Buccaneers Offensive Lineman Randy Grimes on Faith, Football & Addiction Recovery

Randy Grimes was a second-round pick in the 1983 NFL Draft by Tampa out of Baylor University, and played 10 seasons with the Buccaneers from 1983-1992. During his playing career, he used prescription pills to treat injuries and the use of those pills fed an addiction that would last 20-plus years. Grimes now dedicates his life to helping others through his non-profit Pro Athletes in Recovery.

He worked in the treatment industry for nine years and is a regular keynote speaker at conferences and events, as well as being involved in interventions, training other professional athletes as Pro AIR mentors, and managing the day-to-day operations at Pro AIR. 

Grimes joined us from Super Bowl LV on Radio Row in Tampa, Florida, to share his incredible story of faith, addiction and recovery. You can learn more about Grimes’ work at ProAthletesInRecovery.org.
