New Buc's wife, Miko Grimes, rips Dolphins

The Bucs added a key player to their defense Friday with the addition of former Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes, but his wife, Miko, might capture as much attention or more.

Miko Grimes, who has such an outspoken history that Bleacher Report said some teams shied away from signing her husband, pulled no punches in ripping the Dolphins.

"the Bucs are a REAL organization, being ran PROPERLY, unlike that dumpster fire in the AFC East we just left!" she wrote in a response posted to Instagram by South Florida Sun Sentinel writer Omar Kelly, who shared a radio show with her in Miami.

Miko Grimes suspended her Twitter account Friday but previously had been outspoken on it, including criticizing Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill after a loss to the Colts.

But she hinted she'll be back soon.

"They wouldn't DARE ask me to delete my twitter!" she continued in her Instagram post. "i deleted my twitter bc i didn't want the twitter gangsters and thumb thugs to have anyone to @ when they found out the Bucs (and multiple other teams) made them all look STUPID! who doesnt want a pro bowl corner thats doing (stuff) NO OTHER CORNER IN THE LEAGUE CAN DO! men lie! women lie! stats lie! the media lies! u know whats undefeated? FILM!!! we are HAPPY and i dont feel like sharing it with anyone just yet. ill be back very soon and ill be the same supportive, dedicated, truthful (expletive) i was before i left!"

Miko Grimes was arrested at a Dolphins game in September on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer, accused of walking through a restricted area outside the stadium and resisting physically until she was threatened with a Taser.

Two days before the Bucs signed Grimes, Bleacher Report said his wife's nature was part of why the Dolphins cut him and was enough that three NFL general managers said they wouldn't sign Grimes because of her.

She also appeared to threaten Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero, writing "that fat (expletive) armando thinks he's safe from bullets bc we might be released is the funniest part of this whole things."
