Bucs general manager Jason Licht may have no problem with Miko Grimes, but he certainly didn’t get any reassurance from her husband’s former employer.

Speaking at the NFL Owners meetings on Tuesday, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross shifted momentarily from the main topic, Ryan Tannehill, to take a quick swipe at the person who once went on a twitter raid against the Miami quarterback.

“I’m not going to get down to that level,” Ross said, via the Miami Herald. “I think everybody knows what she represented and I thought it was best the Dolphins move on from Brent and Miko.”

Along with attacking Tannehill and threatening reporters via social media, Miko was also arrested outside Sun Life Stadium last season. Prior to Tampa Bay signing Grimes, the rumors were out there that teams would steer clear of the productive cornerback due to his wife’s checkered past.

The Buccaneers, however, elected for a different approach. The team is trusting former coaches of Grimes, like head coach Dirk Koetter and defensive coordinator Mike Smith, both of whom gave him rave reviews on and off the field, and believe the problems surrounding Miko are in the past. And if that’s the case, and there are no outside distractions, then Tampa Bay can be excited about landing a cornerback who’s coming off back-to-back-to-back Pro Bowls.

Don’t misread my comment. Bring Brent Grimes here but leave the baggage in Miami where she fits right in.

Well they fired their coach, and it was reported by the press that Tannehill was being a dick to some practice squad players. Miko told the truth, and sometimes the truth hurts. If Ross was so happy with the way things were being run on his team he wouldn’t have cleaned house now would have he?

Let me see if I understand this. Miko Grimes said what many of the Dolphin fans were saying and the owner, who should have been above such things and ignore her, cuts one of his best players for spite. She was just another voice in the chorus of frustrated fans. Ross should be concerned more about that lame logo, team colors and pathetic fight song than some outspoken girl.

Hey Scudog I always liked, Miamiiiiiii Dophins, Miamiiiiiiiii Dolpins….
Have to agree with you though.
If you are cutting an All-Pro because his wife has a big mouth and who is also professionally paid to use it on a radio show, your priorities are way out of whack.
Not all of the fans are sold on Tannehill either. I don’t watch him that much so I don’t know. I sure do hear a lot of grumbling though.
Still, I hope she sobers up and keeps her pie hole shut around here.

It was the same song as “Houston Oilers….Houston Oilers”
