New England Patriots Cut Stephon Gilmore

Patriots cut Stephon Gilmore

The New England Patriots have decided to cut star cornerback Stephon Gilmore after a restructured contract could not be agreed to. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.

Gilmore had not played yet this season for the Patriots, as he was sidelined with a quad injury. Cutting Gilmore gives the Patriots’ cap space as they had $54,000 before the move.

The 31-year-old, South Carolina product is a four-time Pro Bowler, two-time All-Pro, 2019 Defensive Player of the Year and one-time Super Bowl champ. He has 114 passes defended and 25 interceptions in his career. His interception against Jared Goff in Super Bowl LIII helped seal the game for the Patriots.

There are reportedly going to be many teams in the market for Gilmore according to Schefter.

At corner, the Patriots have J.C. Jackson, Jalen Mills and Jonathan Jones who are all playing a lot of snaps.
