QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills WR Stevie Johnson
Q: Besides the Seahawks CB Richard Sherman and the Jets CB Darrelle Revis, is there any cornerback in the league who stands out to you?
A: “I like our cornerback Stephon Gilmore. I like Stephon a lot. As a rookie he played a lot of downs. He was thrown into the fire. As a top draft pick you should be, but he is pretty good. I go against him every day at practice. He is one that I have a hard time of getting behind. I think he is going to develop and be a really good cornerback.” – via NFL AM on NFL Network 3/6
