Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore named to Pro Bowl

New, comments

There are now five Bills players either invited or going to this year’s NFL All-Star Game.

Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl team. We aren’t exactly sure who he’ll be replacing, but it’s the first Pro Bowl nod for the fifth-year defender.

He set a career high with five interceptions this season, the most any Bills player has recorded since Jairus Byrd in 2012.

There’s no doubt it was an up-and-down season for the former first-round pick. However, he played his best football in the latter portion of the season.

The Bills have a decision to make on Gilmore this offseason, as his rookie contract has expired. Obviously, a new contract is a possibility, but Buffalo could also hit him with the franchise tag to keep him in Western New York for at least one more season.

At this point though, it seems like he’ll hit the free-agent market.
