Stephon Gilmore Throws Shade At Buffalo, Seriously Irks ‘Bills Mafia’


There might be some Stephon Gilmore fans left in Buffalo, but the numbers are declining fast.

Gilmore, who left the Bills to sign a five-year, $65 million contract with the New England Patriots during the offseason, took a not-so-subtle jab at his former team in a tweet Monday.

In any event, Gilmore’s impending return to Buffalo in Week 12 just got much more interesting.
