Since Stephon Gilmore has missed the last three games with a knee injury, Friday was the first time the cornerback has spoken to the media in quite some time.
A lot has happened since, as his house was put up for sale around the trade deadline and he was involved in some trade rumors at the time as well.
Gilmore addressed everything when he spoke and here's what he had to say.
On his knee: “I feel pretty good. Just taking it day-by-day. Looking forward to this week. I am just taking it day-by-day and keep preparing like I am going to play this week.”
On missing last three games: “I wasn’t able to play. I wasn’t physically ready to play these last couple of weeks. Things happen. You have to adjust to it. Nothing would keep me off the field from playing with my teammates. That’s one thing that stuck with me. I am happy that I am progressing, getting better and looking forward to this week.”
On his house going on the market: “I just wanted to move to the city. I like the city. That’s one place I want to go, so that is why I made that decision.”
On his he envisions being with Patriots long term: “That’s a question you have to ask the organization. The only thing I can do every day is just come to work and prepare and try and give it my best each and every week. There’s some stuff you can’t control in life, you just got to go out there and enjoy yourself. We’ve got great coaches here. We have great players, we have young players here that’s getting better and better. I am just enjoying the moment and I love being here. I love the culture. I am happy that I am a Patriot.”
