Report: Bucs' Grimes owes IRS $191,471 in back taxes



Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes, who is making $7-million to play for Tampa Bay this season, has a lien against his home in South Florida from the Internal Revenue Service as a result of unpaid taxes from 2014, the Miami Herald reported Thursday.

Grimes, a former Pro Bowl player who had a key interception in the Bucs' win Monday night at Carolina, owes $191,471 to the IRS, according to a lien on their home filed Thursday, the newspaper reported. The IRS has "made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid," according to the document. Grimes and his wife Miko bought the home in 2014 for $1.2-million, the Herald reported.

The 33-year-old, now in his 10th NFL season, has earned more than $44-million in the NFL, including $23.5-million in his three years with the Dolphins before joining the Bucs this spring, according to, a site that tracks player contracts. Grimes could not be reached for comment Thursday.
