Brent Grimes' wife Miko rips NFL in Twitter rant

Brent Grimes’ outspoken wife Miko accused the NFL of stripping her husband of paid Pro Bowl appearances after he left practice Thursday to be with her as she underwent what she called “emergency oral surgery.”

She also voiced her disappointment that her husband did not take home the game’s defensive MVP honors, and said that the league is hurting players by making them play Thursday night games that require a shorter turnaround than normal from their usual Sunday afternoon games.

She characterized the NFL as the “shadiest” and most “disrespectful” organization in the world, and said the league only got involved in the Rice situation after a videotape surfaced showing him striking his then-fiancee.

Brent Grimes, a three-time Pro Bowl defender, signed a four-year, $32 million contract during the 2014 offseason. He had 57 total tackles, with five interceptions in 2014 for the Dolphins, who have missed the playoffs in each of the past six seasons.
