Saturday was a special day for former Patriots cornerback Raymond Clayborn, as he was the 26th member of the organization to be inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame.
A ceremony took place following Patriots practice outside the Hall at Patriot Place with Robert and Jonathan Kraft on hand, as well as numerous other members of the Patriots Hall of Fame.
Afterwards, Clayborn met with the media and was asked about the Patriots’ new cornerback Stephon Gilmore, and he used that as an opportunity to take a swipe at the Bills.
“I told Gilmore, ‘I see why Buffalo lost four straight Super Bowls.’ I see that they will not be very good this year,” Clayborn said. “They give up a great running back and a great cornerback. That’s ridiculous.”
Added Clayborn: “The people running Buffalo, whoever the owner is over there, he needs to look at them letting these guys go. That’s ridiculous.”
He’s referring to the Patriots signing Gilmore, who played for the Bills in his first five years in the league, and then the Patriots also signing running back Mike Gilislee, who was a restricted free agent with Buffalo this offseason.
