Stephon Gilmore had exactly the same reaction to Antonio Brown’s trading report as so many of us.
Shortly after the news broke that the Pittsburgh Steelers were close to trading Brown to Buffalo Bills, Gilmore sent a tweet with a lot of laughs in tears emojis:
Keep in mind that Gilmore spent his first five seasons in Buffalo before signing with the Patriots as a free agent.
If the trade goes through, Gilmore’s defense in New England would have to go up against Brown twice a season. He doesn’t seem to be worried.
Gilmore’s reaction resembled many others. Lots of media members laughed in response to the trade, sending Brown from one of the consistent NFL winners to one of the consistent losers.
The trade reminds us of a few adages, for example “be careful what you want” and “the grass is not always greener”. Or maybe Brown will prove we’re all wrong and lead the bills to success they haven’t seen for years.
