Analysis: The 26-year-old was outspoken in training camp last year, saying that he was one of the elite cornerbacks in the league. Buffalo opted against using its franchise tag on Gilmore, who rebounded from a tough start to the season to earn his first Pro Bowl selection. Gilmore reeled in a pair of interceptions in Week 11 against Cincinnati and finished with a career-high five picks to go along with 48 tackles last season. He has 14 interceptions in his career.
