Gilmore says he 'probably' won't speak with former USC teammate Jeffery before Super Bowl
BOSTON, MA (WACH) -- From rooming together at South Carolina to going up against each other in practice everyday as college teammates, Stephon Gilmore and Alshon Jeffery know each other quite well. But despite their long relationship, the current New England Patriots defensive back says he "probably" won't be speaking with his old friend who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles before the Super Bowl.
"I'm just too competitive to do that," Gilmore said with a smile to CBS Boston sports director Steve Burton during a weekly Patriots All-Access interview. "I may talk to him after but before the game it's really all focus.
"I went against him everyday in practice. One-on-ones we were the first ones up competing against each other. We have a lot of history together and it's gonna be fun playing against him."
