*Miko Grimes has gone on another Twitter rant.
The wife of Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes – who in the past has used Twitter to rail against her husband not winning MVP at the Pro Bowl, to say he was mistreated by the Atlanta Falcons, and to accuse the NFL of greed and sexism – on Sunday turned her tweets toward her husband’s current teammate, quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
“I knew this qb stunk the minute we signed to this team but I tried to keep quiet so I didn’t discourage bae from believing in his team,” she tweeted after the Dolphins lost 18-12 to the Colts on Sunday. Her Twitter account has since been protected, but not before a number of media outlets had captured the tweets.
Of Tannehill she also tweeted: “I should’ve known we were gonna lose when I heard we didn’t complete a single pass in two minute drills this week against the practice squad defense.”
Miko also used Twitter to curse out three local sportswriters: the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley and Armando Salguero, and Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post. She refers to the men as “the Triple A’s.”
She also tweeted: “In conclusion … the triple A’s have an agenda. Destroy the defense and make everything look like Tannehill is not the problem. #GotIt.”
According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins officials have met with Grimes and his wife at least five times about her social media situation and how it adversely affects the team. There has also been concern over whether Miko Grimes’ opinions are reflective of things her husband might believe about his team.
Interim coach Dan Campbell managed a smile Monday when asked about the tweets.
“This is not the first time that these things have happened,” Campbell said. “You can’t listen to all that stuff out there.”
Players are off until Wednesday. Campbell declined to say whether he discussed the matter with Brent Grimes, but said he’s not concerned about the relationship between the cornerback and Tannehill.
“I’ve never sensed that there has been any animosity or disconnect between those two guys,” Campbell said. “That has never been an issue, and I still don’t believe it’s an issue. …
“Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. Certainly my wife sometimes thinks different than I do. She has that right.”
Earlier this season, she was arrested on charges of battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct outside of Sun Life Stadium before a Bills-Dolphins game. The charges were later dropped.
