The Internal Revenue Service has placed a lien against Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes’ South Florida home as a result of unpaid taxes from 2014, the Miami Herald reported Thursday.

Grimes owes $191,471 to the IRS, according to the lien filed on his home in Davie, according to The Herald. He and his wife Miko bought the five-bedroom house in 2014 for $1.2 million. The IRS has “made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” according to the lien.

The four-time Pro Bowler is making $7 million playing for the Bucs this season and has made $44 million in his 10 years in the NFL, according to, which tracks player contracts.

Miko has been open to sharing her thoughts on her Husband’s career, teammates and organizations on social media. Despite her Twitter account being protected from public view, Deadspin reported a response to Adam Beasley of The Herald, who first reported the story.

Grimes played a pivotal role in the Bucs 17-14 win over Carolina on Monday night, intercepting a pass in the endzone late in the fourth quarter.
