Buffalo TV Station Roasts Stephon Gillmore Following Tweet About BillsDavid Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

When the New England Patriots originally signed cornerback Stephon Gillmore this offseason, it appeared that Gillmore harbored no ill will towards his former team, that is until he took to his twitter account Monday afternoon and appeared to take a shot at the Bills and their failures of the past decade plus of not making the playoffs.

Ouch.

While it’s a fact the Buffalo Bills have not qualified for the NFL’s postseason since 1999 and don’t get many primetime tv games as a result, the tweet certainly didn’t go over very well in Buffalo, where fans viewed it as adding more salt to their wounds.

This is where WGRZ Buffalo Sports anchor Jonah Javad decided to have a little fun with a “clap back” at the now rival Gilmore by showcasing a rather unflattering highlight package of him getting burned by wide receivers throughout his time in Buffalo, culminating with a shot quote of “if you can’t beat em, join em.”

From a New England Patriots point of view, the lowlights may serve as additional motivation fuel for Gillmore, who joins what many see as a top defensive backfield in the NFL. For a team that has a 3-26 record versus Tom Brady since 2001, tread lightly Buffalo.
