Dolphins CB Brent Grimes not focusing on incident with wife Miko, is looking ahead to Jets game in London
The drama is continuing for the Grimes family. Before the home opener against the Buffalo Bills, Miko Grimes, the 40-year old wife of Brent Grimes, was arrested after ignoring police orders to stop and then assaulting an officer. She was soon released but she now faces serious charges.
On top of all that, CBS Radio (WQAM) has decided to fire the outspoken player's wife from her job as a radio host following the arrest, as first reported by Will Manso of WPLG Local 10 News. Her partner Omar Kelly will be staying on per the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.
Miko also recently deleted her Twitter account, so it appears that she's laying low until some of the drama has a chance to settle down.
Despite all of this however, the Dolphins top cornerback says he's not letting the situation with his wife get to him, and he's looking ahead to flying to London to face off against the New York Jets and hopefully get back on track.
“Miko’s fine but we really want to talk about football,” Brent Grimes said. “We’ve got a big division game coming up. We’ve got the Jets, we’re going to London. We just lost pretty bad and want to rebound from that. I really don’t want to talk about what happened to Miko. That’ll handle itself.”
Head coach Joe Philbin stated on Monday that the incident with Miko would not affect Brent's standing with the team.
Brent Grimes is team's top cornerback and is one of the best zone corners in the NFL, his value to the team as a player is high, and luckily, the 32-year old veteran is making it a point to say he's not letting the situation with his wife affect his play on the field.
“I’m good,” he said. “I’m a football player. Playing football is my job and that’s what I’m coming in here to do.”
