Miko Grimes repeats claim that she got Brent Grimes cut by the Dolphins

Miko Grimes is at it again. Usually, she says what she has to say on Twitter. For a change, a respected national media outlet has given her a platform for her over-the-top (and at times factually inaccurate) musings.

In an interview with Jack Dickey of SI.com, the wife of Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes claims that she deliberately tried to get her husband released by the Dolphins by making outlandish comments on Twitter. Some regard this as news. It’s not; she previously made that claim in 2016 on Twitter.

It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins moved on from Grimes because of his size, his age, and the magnitude of his contract. Before doing so, they tried to arrange a trade. Ultimately, with no one biting, the Dolphins cut the cord.

Miko’s antics didn’t help, but if Brent Grimes fit with the vision for the construction of the roster, they would have tried to find a way to make things work.

There’s a chance Miko was deliberately trying to agitate for Brent’s release, and that she coincidentally achieved her objective. There’s also a chance she simply can’t help herself. Which means that it may be a matter of time before she starts sounding off about his current team.

  1. Maybe there are positives behind the scenes that we do not see. But, Miko seems like she is way more crazy than would offset most positives.

  2. I’m not saying she’s ugly but she is no beauty contest winner either. Add that to her nasty mouth and its a lethal combination to be hanging with, much less marrying.

  3. “It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Dolphins moved on from Grimes because of his size, his age, and the magnitude of his contract. Before doing so, they tried to arrange a trade. Ultimately, with no one biting, the Dolphins cut the cord.”

    So basically you’re saying something is factually untrue based on the word of one source vs another? That’s honest reporting right there.

    “According to Miko, the Dolphins had told Brent he had to take a pay cut; if he declined, they would wait until other teams used up all their cap space and then release him. (A Dolphins spokesman says that these discussions never happened.)”

    The PFT source even said the contract was a reason. Size? Did he shrink since they signed him? Give me a break.

    Miko’s story isn’t that unreasonable. Media hates her because she shines a light on things they’d prefer she didn’t.

    She’s been great to Tampa so far and a lot of fans have embraced her; and she’s been on a growing podcast and is very knowledgeable about the game.

    She’s not exactly well spoken or diplomatic about anything but she keeps it real lol

  4. This is the same woman who was on a local news station in Miami (channel 7) back in 2015 after her arrest crying to the reporter that she was so misunderstood by the media and the public.

  5. Didn’t PFT once run an article quoting Dolphins owner, Stephen Ross, as saying that Miko Grimes was part of the reason that Brent was cut?

    I’m a little embarrassed to be agreeing with Miko Grimes, but I swear I remember that article.

  6. I feel sad for people that applaud her for keeping it “real”. Real how? She is nothing short of a foul mouthed racist ignorant jerk that embarrasses herself and her, what seems to be decent husband, at every turn.

    Miko must have some secret astonishing talents and rare abilities.
    —————————-

    They were once illustrated on her husband’s birthday cake. NSFW should you be inclined to do a search.

  8. Brent has been neutered by this woman. Once his career is done, she’ll probably get worse and then we’ll hear about his side of the deal. She is the mother of his kids and he probably wants to keep the peace and not be distracted but she is unrelenting. It’s obvious the elevator doesn’t get to the top with this woman and he is likely helpless in that marriage situation.

  9. If you would please stop reporting things about her we’d never have to hear from her again.

  10. One of these days she will get him cut and not get signed by another team. Then, instead of bragging about it she’ll be complaining about how unfair it is.

    Aaaaaaaand that’s how you end up with someone like Donald Trump as president.

  12. “She’s been great to Tampa so far and a lot of fans have embraced her; and she’s been on a growing podcast and is very knowledgeable about the game.”
    If you did any research on her at all, you would find that she did the same thing to the Falcons and fan base when they cut him in Atlanta.
    In the beginning Miami fans embraced her ( i did) and as the years worn on, she worn on us and the team and owner. It gets tiring. She was on radio shows and TV in Miami. She was a professional basketball player when she met Brent.
    Tampa hired him as they were desperate at the time, as there were no corners on the market at all.
    last point: If he was not getting torched by all the big receivers in the AFC East they would have kept him and reworked his contract or just kept him, again there was no great corners on the market at that time to sign.
    When Tampa signed Brent, we all wished Tampa good luck, but beware its coming…takes about 3 years for her to show her stripes.

  13. Haters keep hating. If you wonder what Brent sees in her, she is probably a really awesome and fun person if she likes you. If you get on her sh!t list, well then it wont be so fun. She is a polar opposite of Brent. He is shy and quiet and doesnt go for the publicity. While she is crazy out going and loves the spotlight. It works for them. They seem very happy and Bucs fans are happy to have both of them.

    Grimes is on the last year of his contract i wouldnt be surprised if Brent gets another 2 years in Tampa (if he doesnt retire after this year) the Bucs arent as uptight as the dolphins are. Tampa can handle her brash outspoken personality and they even embrace it. Our HC and GM have no problems with Miko’s past or what lies in the future. They know as long as the team is doing well then Miko will have no reason to complain. Phin fans are just mad because their QB sucks and she called him out. Lol

  14. I’ve been to dozens of Dolphins games and never got arrested. Hundreds of other South Floridians have been season-ticket holders and never got arrested.

    Miko can try to paint it anyway she wants, but when her son is old enough to Google her name and find pictures of her face down on the street getting handcuffed she’ll finally realize she was more focused on being “Miko” than being a parent, a supportive spouse and an all-around well-behaved normal adult and citizen.

    SHE is the one with the issue. Not the rest of the world. It’s time she started blaming the person within the mirror and not everyone else.

  15. At the end of the day she is the wife of a pro footballer. She is a neverbeen to the general football fan and why do these ridiculous media outlets give here air time, because it shows me how low they have stooped for a strory.

  16. his size was a factor after B Marshall kept plucking balls off the top of his helmet! He was/is a good player and he served us well for a couple years.

    I prefer the young DB’s we have now, without the distractions!
