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.
