Miko Grimes Endorses Roddy White

March 13th, 2016

Seahawks 2010The Bucs desperately need depth at receiver, and many amateur Tampa Bay general managers have called for the signing of Falcons icon Roddy White, a free agent for more than a week now.

Of course, Joe sought the opinion of a woman well versed in White’s ways.

Her name is Miko Grimes, superfan and wife of new Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes, who is gunning to make his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl. Grimes’ first Pro Bowl came as a Falcons teammate of White.

So Mrs. Grimes, who always calls it straight, knows all about White.

The Bucs have about $20 million in 2016 salary cap room, and White won’t be expensive.

Remember, Dirk Koetter called White the “single-most competitive football player I’ve ever met in my life.”

Joe would feel better about what’s surrounding America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, if White were on the roster. He’s a better option for opening day than Louis Murphy less than 10 months removed from ACL surgery, or Donteea Dye, or Kenny Bell, who has yet to catch a preseason pass.

    You should be embarrassed you wrote this article and quoted Miko. Drink a beer and go to bed. She’ll be throwing stones at you in 2 years once her man starts aging. I guess you are just playing the buddy buddy game now.

  2. MadMax Says:

    I would really like it if we signed him. Im worried VJax might be hindered by that late season injury. So Roddy could step in and compliment him. No he’s not a burner with speed but neither is VJax.

  3. BucTrooper Says:

    Give Miko a column, Joe.

  4. thunderchunkyPA Says:

    Could he have a Steve Smith like rebirth in Tampa? I am not sure. Upgrade? Sure, but I still hope they draft another target for #3

  5. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    U summed it up bruddah – He’s not a burner.

  6. BucFan4Life Says:


    I love your blog. Just wanted you to know you listed Miko as Brent’s husband not wife.

  7. Buc53 Says:

    Uggghhh. Joe I really like this site, but cut the Miko crap. It’s beneath you, and it makes you appear less legitimate.

  8. DefenseRules Says:

    Bucs need speed at WR more than anything else Joe, someone who can stretch the field for VJax and Evans. Roddy’s a great teammate from everything I’ve read, but he doesn’t exactly have blazing speed and and is only an average possession receiver (43 catches out of 70 targets for 506 yds last year) … 61% for a 12 yd average. Bucs certainly do however need to pick up at least 1 WR (Dye doesn’t cut it) and maybe 2 WR (if Murph doesn’t come back strong).

  9. harry Says:

    Because White won’t cost much, and because he would make a GREAT 3rd WR, I don’t understand why we haven’t already signed him.

  10. Rob in Land O' Lakes Says:

    Chill guys (and Lady). This is still the best site for Buc info. As any long time JBF observer knows, the more you complain about (Shaun King…one of three QB’s, Peter King’s intro, America’s QB, etc)……. the more the Joes are going to run it at you.

    Sure, this has the potential to be a train wreck, but it is no reflection on Joes journalistic integrity. My section (337) has been a morgue for years…. inhabited mainly by opposing fans… I welcome any fan..player’s wife or not, that brings some passion.

  11. godzilla13 Says:

    C’mon Buc 53, JoeBucsFan is the perfect site for Miko. If you don’t like it you can always put on your Sunday’s best and go visit those privileged posters over at SB Nation. I like Miko. Miko knows football and if Miko approves Roddy White.. I am good with it.

  12. tnew Says:

    first off, I’ve got to say I’m enjoying the Miko stuff. Its like Evil Knievel, its going to be a spectacle whether she crashes and burns or whether she adds a little bit of edge to this party.

    On the Roddy White possibility. If he could become the guy that gets 6 when we need a long 5 to keep a drive going, then I’m all for it. He like Koetter, and Koetter likes him. We should bring him in offer a team friendly deal and hope he can help develop Jameis and Evans. Who would know better than White, what the receivers want from Koetter’s offense? This should just expedite the process.

  13. tmaxcon Says:

    Defense rules

    Whites numbers last year being an after thought are better than any numbers Murphy has ever put up. Murphy has never been strong nor durable. he’s not going magically get it now. Bucs need talented versatile football players not feel good local stories like Murphy. There is a reason no other teams picked up Murphy when he was on the couch… let’s not confuse local feel good stories with great football players or the bucs will remain in the basement

  14. Bucluck Says:

    Why are you obsessed with Miko?

  15. phreakybucfan Says:

    Make Miko Joe #3! Just sayin’

  16. Jeffbuc Says:

    I guess tmz bought joebucsfan all we are going to hear about is what miko grimes thinks. Lets just keep it to bucs players and coaches not there wife’s please.

  17. Tom S. Says:

    LOL @Buc53, make this site less legitimate? You must be new here.

    Clearly you missed Manziel Mancrush Mondays-Fridays.

  18. phreakybucfan Says:

    Hey Joe, please make an android app. I come to your site 3-4 times a day and it is murder on my phone. I deal with it because it’s the absolute best Bucs site of all time. But damn it’s annoying. Just sayin’

  19. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I’m fine with Roddy, too. Clearly, he’s not in his prime, but that doesn’t mean he can’t catch.

    People around here seem to forget we need good catchers before we need speed. Speed won’t matter if they cannot catch. And besides…Winston’s deep passes are not THAT great yet.

  20. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    That suggestion has my vote too. If not an app, then at least a mobile website option.

  21. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    “Uggghhh. Joe I really like this site, but cut the Miko crap. It’s beneath you, and it makes you appear less legitimate.”

    May as well get used to it. Joe is cultivating the relationship for a reason. You can bet we’ll get all kinds of information thru that source. Think about it…a wife to a player who doesn’t know when to shut up. It’s a goldmine of information.

    Besides…if you go into knowing she will turn on us eventually, then it’s no big deal. Sort of like Chris Jerico in WWE…he may come back as a good guy, but you just know he’ll turn bad at some point. So you expect it.

    I like the entertainment value.

    Ain’t that the truth!

  23. waterboy Says:

    I think Mike Wallace might be a better option for the Bucs than White. The Bucs need some speed at WR and White seems to have lost a step or 2 already. They need a guy who can stretch the field and force opposing defenses to respect his speed.

  24. Kevin422 Says:

    Joe …. Please do not start enabling the wife of a player for her need for attention. I like your articles for the detailed analysis. If Miko has some insider insight not gleaned by the average viewer, then fine. Otherwise it’s another Real Housewives reality show; it’s nonsense.

  25. tmaxcon Says:

    I’m not sure what I enjoy more Miko or the people crying about Miko… keep it coming Joe… great entertainment and no cover charge

  26. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    “Her name is Miko Grimes, superfan and husband of new Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes,”

    I thought I saw Miko with an Adam’s Apple……

  27. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    LOL @ ALL the above comments..agree to Bonzai and Rob..and others..

    As far as Roddy, I’ve been pushing for him since he became a free agent..he will bring experience..and the others we just signed, they are mostly two years good, hopefully more..but it’s just enough to bring in the next crop of draftees, get them fully trained and then unleash them..

    Slow weekend in Buc news..let’s see what the week brings us..

    LMAO@ Manziel Mancrush…

  28. Luther Says:

    Ok…you have America’s QB, now you have America’s CB’s wife. Time to get that site rolling now Joe.

  29. James Walker Says:

    We don’t need a burner, we need a healthy receiver who doesn’t put KY on his gloves.

  30. Onebucdaddy Says:

    [Hateful and lewd language about a player’s wife like this will not be tolerated on JoeBucsFan.com. — Joe]

  31. Mike Johnson Says:

    Not comment worthy.

    Joe finds Miko informative and entertaining. She enjoys engaging with fans on Twitter. Don’t see the harm in that at all.

    As always, no one is forcing anyone to read a specific subject on JoeBucsFan.com.

  33. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We could do a lot worse than Roddy White……I’d love to have him for a year or two…..after all….we will keep 6 or maybe even 7 WRs…….

  34. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    To the guy that you just responded to Joe, that is too funny. I didn’t read the article and couldn’t care less about what some loud mouth players wife had to say. You seem fascinated by her for some reason and it’s your site so have at it I guess. I will continue to bypass these articles and read the others though.

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    Everything I saw from White last year showed me an old washed up WR that can’t get open.

  36. Dave Says:

    Nothing against Miko, don’t know her, but to ask her football questions just because her husband is a player is pathetic and a serious lack of real journalistic professionalism. I don’t get it. It’s like fanning the flames of a Kardashian. We are here for real football info, nothing more.
    Have fun with it Joe, you lost another reader of every article where you feature her.

  38. Thibs5599 Says:

    Adam humphries will be slot reciever, played well last year and will only get better, koetter loves him too.

  39. Ryan Says:

    Joe deleting posts I see. Use to be a site I’d visit multiple times a day. Now maybe a couple of times a week, if that.

    Joe always deletes posts for hate speech, false claims, etc. Always has. Don’t see anything from you in the trash bin, so perhaps it was on your end. –Joe

  40. Big Marlon B Says:

    Joe this is a great site, and I love the hard work you guys put in. But all of this Miko nonsense is turning this site into TMZ. Who cares what she thinks??? She doesn’t work in personnel so I don’t think anyone cares about her player evaluation skills.

    From all accounts from Falcons and Dolphins fans, she sucks. Wait until the first time Grimes gives up a TD, she will blame Mike Smith and say he’s garbage. I love Grimes’ tenacity and on field demeanor, I just wish he had the same attitude at home and could get his wife to keep her mouth shut.

  41. Bob in Valrico Says:

    one thing I remember from playing Atlanta the last couple of years Julio Jones,
    Tony gonzalez and harry Douglas hurt us.Roddy White wasn’t much of a factor.
    Wish we would go after higher round can’t miss type receiver in the draft.the Robert Heron’s and kick return/recievers in the late rounds aren’t working out for us.The jury is still out on Kenny Bell also.

  42. unbelievable Says:

    Hahaha I saw the ‘endorsement’ on Twitter yesterday. Had a feeling Joe was gonna write about it.

    LOL I know you’re reading the comments, so why haven’t you changed your typo of calling Miko Brent’s husband instead of Brent’s wife?
