Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he thought it was best for his team to move on from cornerback Brent Grimes, as well as Grimes’s wife Miko, reports the Palm Beach Post’s Andrew Abramson.

“I think everybody knows what she [Miko] represented,” Ross said. “I thought it was best that the Dolphins move on from Brent and Miko.”

Ross was released by the Dolphins earlier this month after Miko made waves last season by criticizing quarterback Ryan Tannehill, threatening reporters and being arrested on the day of a game in September.
