Former Miami Dolphins’ cornerback Brent Grimes is looking to pick up a new contract very soon in the next few months, but it looks like that may not be happening in the near future. However, it doesn’t seem like his play on the field is cause for concern.
Grimes’s wife, Miko Grimes, has never been afraid to speak her mind. Last season, she took to Twitter to openly criticize Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill and it is becoming a big problem for her husband’s future.
According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reported that at least three NFL general managers won’t speak to Brent Grimes because of his wife. You can check out the video of Cole’s report below.
In the last three years with the Dolphins, Grimes has racked up 13 interceptions, as many as he had in six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. So this is not about his skill on the field.
During that same three-year span, Miko has been open with her criticism of the team, causing a split among the locker room, as well as being arrested at a game and charged with disorderly conduct and battery of a police officer.
Right now, it may be best for Grimes to speak with his wife about her attitude while he is playing on the field. If not, her passion could end up hurting his career rather than helping it.
