QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On his first impression of DB Stephon Gilmore and the self-assuredness that he carries:
“Confidence is something that’s vital, especially at the cornerback position. It’s vital at some other spots, but it’s really vital at the cornerback position. He played well and did well in this camp. Now, when he goes against the other guys he’s going to lose some. How does he handle getting beat? He didn’t get beat a lot out here, so how does he handle that? He’s going to go through some emotions so that maturity and that confidence will help him I think. He’s played in a tough league. He knows what it’s about.”
