VIDEO: Stephon Gilmore Back Working Towards Another Strong Season In 2020Jasen Vinlove - USA TODAY Sports

The reigning NFL Defensive Player of The Year was spotted back at work this week preparing for 2020.

On Instagram Monday, Gilmore shared video of himself training with former Pro Bowl corner, Super Bowl champion and 11 year NFL veteran Dre’ Bly in Charlotte, North Carolina.

For some backstory on Gilmore’s relationship with Bly, CLNS Media’s Evan Lazar wrote a piece last fall profiling the duo’s workout program.

“He came out for the day to see what we were doing and liked the stuff I was doing with him,” the former cornerback said. “Change of direction, quick feet, ball drills, and stuff like that, and he wanted to do more. He asked me if I could train him during the summer to get him ready for camp.”

Bly explained to Lazar how a typical offseason program for an NFL cornerback goes and how football-specific coaches like himself can help players “stay sharp”.

“Typically what guys do is they find a trainer, they lift weights, and they find a speed guy. Most DBs, skill guys they want to do fieldwork, so that’s something they can’t do with their trainer,” he said. “Trainers are more so lifting guys and running guys, so with me playing as long as I played and coaching, he felt like there was a need to do DB drills, so he reached out to me, and we started doing it.”

With three Pro Bowl selections in four years and two straight All Pro’s under his belt, Gilmore appears hungry for more as he enters his ninth professional season and Bly continues to help get him there.
