Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (10) is tackled by Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes (24) on a catch during the first half of a game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016.

TAMPA — 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 could not be reached for comment.

Grimes, a four-time Pro Bowl player who had a key interception in the Bucs' win at Carolina on Monday night, owes $191,471 to the IRS, according to the lien filed on the home in Davie, the newspaper reported. The IRS has "made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid," the lien says.

Grimes, 33, and his wife, Miko, bought the five-bedroom, 41/2-bath home in 2014 for $1.2 million, the Herald reported.

Grimes, in his 10th NFL season, has earned more than $44 million, including $23.5 million in his three years with the Dolphins before joining the Bucs last spring, according to spotrac.com, a website that tracks player contracts.
