Tom Brady Leaving Makes Sense, Says Patriots Star
Tom Brady leaving to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers makes sense, says one New England Patriots star.
Cornerback Stephon Gilmore spoke to ESPN recently, and revealed that he was not particularly surprised that his team lost its future Hall of Fame quarterback.
“Not surprised,” Gilmore told ESPN.com.
“A player like him, playing somewhere that long, you never can see it, but it shows you that in the National Football League it can be anyone going somewhere. It’s a business, and that’s how you have to look at it.”
That said, Gilmore is optimistic about what the future holds with young quarterback Jarrett Stidham.
“He came in and worked hard and got better and better as the year went on,” Gilmore said of Stidham.
“He has a strong arm. He makes some tough throws. Definitely made it hard on me in practice each and every week, going against whoever I was covering, making some great throws. It allowed me to get better in practice to prepare for the games.”
It will be interesting to see how Stidham performs early in 2020. That will provide a good window into whether New England made the right decision letting Brady go.
