Ravens’ Crockett Gillmore Explains How He Got Unique Name At Last Minute

HOUSTON — If not for a last-minute change, Joe Flacco would be throwing passes to a Cameron Gillmore nowadays.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore has a unique name, but his parents didn’t always plan it that way. In fact, as Gillmore explained Wednesday to NESN.com’s Michaela Vernava, he almost was named “Cameron” before his mom called an audible just before giving birth on Nov. 16, 1991.

Gillmore also discussed what makes a quarterback elite and whether he’d rather catch passes from Tom Brady or Matt Ryan if he were playing Sunday in Super Bowl LI. Check out the entire conversation in the video player above.
