On Wednesday, the Miami Dolphins released cornerback Brent Grimes, a move that was expected and had the expected effect on his wife.

Miko Grimes went off on another of her patented and, at times, vulgar Twitter rants. Of special interest was Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, who had written that the team might trade or cut the cornerback in a move that would save money and eliminate one the team’s headaches, the aforementioned Miko Grimes.

“That fat b—- armando thinks he’s safe from bullets bc we might be released is the funniest part of this whole things,” she tweeted Monday night.

Salguero had pointed out Monday that cutting Grimes would save the Dolphins $6.5 million (if he were designated a pre-June 1 cut) or $8 million (if he were a post-June 1 cut). Then he pointed out that, in cutting Grimes:

They get rid of a huge headache. In short, they move out a 32-year-old cornerback who had matchup issues against bigger receivers, didn’t play as well in 2015 as he had in the past, was scheduled to make a lot of money, and came packaged with issues best described in two words: Miko Grimes.

That set Miko off — and she went on to mention (in an tweet that can’t be published on a family-friendly website) a sex act, among other things.

“The fan base” in Miami, she added on Twitter, “will always because mediocre bc the coverage is mediocre. U don’t learn [expletive] from the writers down here. Omar [Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel] is the only one trying. … thats why I respect him. he turns on film, breaks it down, isn’t always rt, but at least he TRIES! What film has your FAV writer broke down 4u?”


Grimes doesn’t mention that the Dolphins were able to cut her husband because they acquired Byron Maxwell (along with linebacker Kiko Alonso) from the Eagles.

Grimes formerly hosted a radio show with Kelly, but that ended when she was arrested for battery of a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest outside Sun Life Stadium in September. Charges were later dropped, but she became a public headache for the Dolphins again in December when she ripped quarterback Ryan Tannehill after the team’s loss to Indianapolis.

“I knew this qb stunk the minute we got signed to this team but i tried to keep quiet so i didnt discourage bae from believing in his team,” she wrote.

Grimes’s rants may be less NFL-centric in the future, though. Her husband may be a former Pro Bowler, but he’s also a 32-year-old free agent whose skills aren’t what they used to be. There are plenty of options for teams looking for help at the position and those options don’t come with a wife who is prone to Twitter rants. Sure enough, Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reported Thursday that three NFL general managers told him they have been scared off by Miko Grimes’s antics, adding, “Miko Grimes was primarily the reason why the Dolphins asked [Brent Grimes] to take a pay cut and ultimately cut him.”
