Patriots' Stephon Gilmore: Buffalo's 'slow pace helped my life out'

Stephon Gilmore will return to Buffalo next weekend with the New England Patriots after signing as a free agent in the offseason.

Gilmore was drafted No. 10 overall by the Bills in 2012 out of South Carolina.

Gilmore's football journey was featured by's Mike Reiss and Gilmore touches on being selected by the Bills, his time here and what it means to be a Patriot.

Here are some excerpts:

Selected No. 10 overall by the Bills: "I was excited. At the same time, I had not heard much about Buffalo, and was thinking it might be closer to New York City. I didn't really know about Western New York. But that was a good experience and I think Buffalo helped my life out -- slow pace -- at the beginning of my career."

Describing life as a Patriot:"It's hard work. You're never really satisfied about doing what we're supposed to do. You're getting hungrier and hungrier every day, trying to get better. I love my teammates; getting closer to them."
