With the addition of rookie cornerback Stephon Gilmore, general manager Buddy Nix and the Buffalo Bills believe he can be a viable option when it comes to covering Rob Gronkowski or Aaron Hernandez of the Patriots.
“We would like to be able to match up against those two guys,” said Nix regarding Gronkowski and Hernandez. ”Even though you’re not as big as they are these guys with speed and they’re big enough that they can’t knock them around and push them away from them. It’s a lot harder for them against these bigger corners. Yes, we think he can do that.”
If Gilmore can cover either Gronkowski or Hernandez, hopefully the Bills will have someone else to cover the guy that’s not being covered by him.
