Derek Carr Drops Bible Verse That Basically Told Miko Grimes To Shut Up (TWEET)
Miko Grimes, the controversial former radio personality and outspoken wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes, put the relationship between players on the line when she stated the Oakland Raiders offensive lineman purposely allowed Derek Carr to get hit after he opposed their national anthem protests.
“[Carr] was against [the offensive line] protesting. And they had a fight in the locker room before that Monday night game with the Redskins,” she said in a “Breakfast Club” appearance. “They were fighting in the locker room, and that’s the only all-black offensive line in the NFL is the Raiders.
“Derek Carr is a Bible thumper to the fullest. And so he was basically trying to force the players to read the Bible before the game, and do all this stuff, and they were like, ‘No, that’s you.’ And so he was so upset about it, when the whole offensive line said they were going to kneel, he was like, ‘No, you’re not kneeling. This is America, you’re going to stand for the flag.’ And they got in a fight in the locker room, so when they came out to play, they basically had a plan.”
Once that statement ran across social media, Raiders players immediately began to deny the accusations. Then Derek Carr delivered the closing shot when he took to Twitter and posted a bible verse that was highlighted. It seemed to imply that Miko Grimes needs to shut up.
