Future Hall of Fame cornerback Darrelle Revis played one season for the New England Patriots, wearing No. 24 during 2014 and winning a Super Bowl.
Five years later, that jersey is worn by one of the top corners in the league, Stephon Gilmore. Or as Revis considers him, by far the best corner in the game.
Revis tweeted that compliment at the tail end of Thursday’s game between the Patriots and New York Giants. Gilmore had a big hand in the win with one pick and five pass deflections, one of which led to a John Simon interception.
