Stephon Gilmore Shares Stellar Mac Jones Review Ahead Of Patriots Game

Stephon Gilmore will go against Mac Jones and the New England Patriots for the first time after leaving the team. The Patriots traded him to the Carolina Panthers and everyone talks about this trade and the reasons Gilmore had to leave the organization. If you ask him, he will say that the Patriots didn’t treated his injury right. They also made an offer that didn’t fit his criteria.

Gilmore has been getting a lot of questions about his time with the Patriots. He didn’t miss the chance to talk about Jones, too.

“He’s a good — great young quarterback,” the former Defensive Player of the Year said. “(He’s) getting better and better each and every game, trying to get his team wired around him. Making a lot of good throws, and they’re running the ball well. He’s getting better. I think he works hard, and I think he’ll be a good player in this league.”

Stephon Gilmore made good memories with Mac Jones, Patriots players

Jones didn’t spend much time with Gilmore. In fact, they didn’t even play together. However, Jones made some great memories with the veteran cornerback.

“He actually helped me a lot, just talking with him,” Jones said on the day Gilmore left the team. “He’s like, ‘Hey, I see you do this on film,’ or whatever. So he definitely played a good role for me just in talking with him. A lot of the guys on the team have a lot of respect for him. He’s a great player, he’ll continue to be a great player and I wish him and his family nothing but success.”

Gilmore didn’t play with the team but he was really helpful in training camp.

“I try to help everybody,” Gilmore said. “Any help that I can (provide) for my teammates. Because at the end of the day, it’s relationships. I try to help guys be better players and teach them as much as I know, because when I was a young player, I had a lot of guys help me along the way also.”

Playing against the Patriots is a big deal. He has been part of the team for a really long time. Now he will have to adjust a different system. The Patriots traded him to the Panthers in Week 5. They placed him on the physically unable to perform list and Gilmore didn’t play at all this season.
