Jets WR Robby Anderson says Stephon Gilmore gets away with penalties

Jets WR Robby Anderson says Stephon Gilmore gets away with penalties

Robby Anderson recognized Stephon Gilmore as one of the game's top cornerbacks on Thursday, though it may have been somewhat of a backhanded compliment.

The New York Jets wide receiver, who will see plenty of Gilmore when the Jets and Pats face off on Sunday, called New England's star corner "one of the best" while adding he "holds a lot and gets away with it," per Brian Costello of The New York Post.

Ex-Jets wideout Brandon Marshall chimed in on Twitter to back up Anderson's statement:

Regardless of whether Anderson's comments about Gilmore's holding are true, he's certainly correct in stating he'll need to bring his "A-game." The Patriots opened as 22.5 point favorites over their 0-2 AFC East foe with quarterbacks Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian both sidelined.

Third-stringer Luke Falk will get the start at QB for Sunday's contest, which kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

One month after requesting a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jalen Ramsey got his wish.

The star cornerback was traded to the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday for two first-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-rounder in 2021, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The news comes on the heels of the Rams trading veteran CB Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens and placing Aqib Talib on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ramsey's move to the NFC is great news for the Patriots, as New England won't have to worry about the two-time Pro Bowler helping out the Kansas City Chiefs' scuffling defense after they were rumored to be one of his suitors.
