QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, HEAD COACH
Q: What are your thoughts on Stephon Gilmore?
A: Give him a lot of credit. He works hard at the little things. He’s truly consistently striving to be the best. And that’s appreciated not only by his teammates but also myself. I see him as being that type of corner.
