Patriots’ Stephon Gilmore laughs at Antonio Brown over Buffalo trade
Stephon Gilmore had the exact same reaction to the Antonio Brown trade report as so many of us.
Shortly after news broke that the Pittsburgh Steelers were close to trading Brown to the Buffalo Bills, Gilmore sent a tweet with a bunch of laughing in tears emojis:

Keep in mind that Gilmore spent his first five seasons in Buffalo before signing with the Patriots as a free agent.
If the trade goes through, Gilmore’s defense in New England would have to go up against Brown twice per season. He doesn’t seem too worried.
Gilmore’s reaction was similar to many others. Plenty of media members laughed in response to the trade, which sends Brown from one of the consistent winners in the NFL to one of the consistent losers.

Antonio Brown did his best to get cut and the Steelers said nah you're going to Buffalo I am over here crying. I hope they took a seventh round pick back.

The trade reminds us of a couple of adages, such as “be careful what you wish for” and “the grass isn’t always greener.” Or maybe Brown will prove us all wrong and lead the Bills to success they haven’t seen in years.
