Brent Grimes found another job.

But Miko Grimes will have to find another hobby.

Two days after the Dolphins released him, Brent Grimes signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Times first reported.

And in what cannot be a coincidence, his wife deleted her notorious Twitter account.

@iheartmiko is no more.

If she had done that a year ago, the Grimes family probably wouldn’t have to move four hours up Interstate 75. Miko Grimes was a liability on Twitter, ripping everyone from Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill to local reporters using language not fit for a family newspaper.

The Dolphins cut her husband at the stroke of 4 p.m. Wednesday, and her behavior was certainly a reason.

Even without a Twitter account, Miko Grimes couldn’t help but weigh in. Using the Instagram account of friend and former co-host on WQAM, Sun Sentinel Dolphins writer Omar Kelly, she wrote the following:

“the Bucs are a REAL organization, being ran PROPERLY, unlike that dumpster fire in the AFC East we just left! they wouldnt DARE ask me to delete my twitter! 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 [expletive] 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!”

The post has since been deleted.

RADIO CHANGES

The Dolphins are discontinuing The Finsiders, their weekday afternoon talk show on WINZ-940 and Fox Sports Florida — a step toward what appears to be their increasingly likely departure from WINZ and their parent company, iheartRadio.

Though a Dolphins source said a decision hasn’t been made about whether to move the games from WINZ to another station, multiple sources say WQAM-560 has emerged as the clear favorite for rights.

WINZ has not been told that it’s losing the games and is under the impression that it remains in contention for rights. But CBS Radio, which bought WQAM from Beasley Broadcasting last year, has put together a strong bid and talks continue to progress toward a deal. The Finsiders, which airs from 4 to 7 p.m. on WINZ, will be discontinued at the end of the month.
