Gilmore not worried about leadership in secondary

The roster churn that always accompanies the NFL offseason cost the Buffalo Bills some experience on the back end of their defense.  But second year CB Stephon Gilmore says it won’t be a problem.

Gilmore is in town this week for the Bills veterans voluntary offseason conditioning program.  And he says although he’ll miss Safety George Wilson and Cornerback Terrence McGee, life goes on.

” I talked to George and Terrence the other day,” Gilmore says.  “They told me to just keep doing what I’m doing, working hard, and the sky’s the limit.  I learned a lot from Terrence from him being here a long time, and being the player that he was.  And George, being as smart as he is, he helped me out a lot of the field.”

Gilmore, Buffalo’s 1st round draft pick last season, has had his initial meetings with the new Bills coaching staff.  And he’s already picked up on a new, positive attitude.

“I think this new coaching staff is very excited about being here,” he says.  “They bring a different vibe—being more excited, and us being more excited than they are.”

” Just the excitement, everybody  happy to be here.  It’s one thing coming in being the coach, but it’s another thing coming in and being excited, and telling the players we’re ready to roll.”
