Yesterday Karlos Dansby snapped on Justin Gilbert but today Donte Whitner went nuts on the number 8 overall pick.
Whitner told ESPN that cornerback Justin Gilbert needs to “stop being a kid” after the rookie struggled for much of the season and saw his playing time dwindle to players with limited to no experience Sunday at Carolina.
“It’s time to grow up and not be a kid anymore. It’s a wasted year for him,” Whitner said. “There were so many ups, so many downs — a lot of it has been brought on by himself. He has to look himself in the mirror like Karlos [Dansby] said, he has to understand what he did wrong, what he needs to get better at, and make sure that you’re back here working out from day one when we return here to show everybody you have a good attitude and you want to go out there and be the player they drafted you to be.”
Gilbert played 17 snaps Sunday, less than special teams ace/corner Jordan Poyer and fourth-round rookie Pierre Desir in his first NFL start.
This is not good when two veterans talk bad about you, OUCH.
