Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore threw some shade at Jaguars corner Jalen Ramsey during an interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Zolak & Bertrand on Wednesday. Watch above for Ramsey’s response.
One of the NFL’s most outspoken players, Ramsey didn’t seem too bothered by Gilmore’s comment about “zone guys” who have more energy to talk trash like he does.

“It’s lame, it’s corny. But that’s him, though.”
