Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) expects to return for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Gilmore missed three games before the Patriots' Week 9 bye. The Patriots' pass defense actually had its best stretch of the season during Gilmore's absence, but the high-priced free agent addition will immediately slide back into the starting lineup. Mon, Nov 6, 2017 03:10:00 PM

Patriots declared CB Stephon Gilmore, CB Eric Rowe, LB D’Onta Hightower, DL Malcom Brown, OL Cam Fleming, OL Cole Croston and DL Geneo Grissom inactive for Week 8 against the Chargers.

This is the third consecutive game that Gilmore has been inactive due to a concussion he suffered against Tampa Bay in Week 5. The Patriots defense has rebounded a bit since the beginning of the season, allowing opponents to score on 19.4 percent (6-of-31) of their possessions, the third-lowest rate in the league, but they are still allowing 37.6 yards per possession, 22nd in the league. With both Gilmore and Rowe inactive once again, Keenan Allen is in line for major opportunity Sunday.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (ankle, concussion) is questionable for Week 8 against the Chargers.

He was a limited participant at all three practices this week. Gilmore's return would likely push Johnson Bademosi back to the bench.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (ankle, concussion) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

It's a sign of progress, though Gilmore still has hurdles to clear as he makes his way through the concussion protocol. Surprisingly, the Patriots' defense has fared much better the past two weeks with Johnson Bademosi filling in at right corner.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) is out for Week 7.

Were Gilmore healthy, the Patriots likely would have used him to shadow Julio Jones on Sunday Night Football. Despite his touchdown-less start to the season, Julio should be teed up with confidence as a top-five WR1 play this week.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 6.

The Patriots only listed Gilmore with an ankle injury, so this comes as a surprise. Gilmore had reportedly been dealing with headaches since the Bucs game. It's a concern to New England's secondary with Eric Rowe also sidelined. Jonathan Jones should start opposite Malcolm Butler.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (ankle) is active for Week 5 against the Bucs.

Gilmore has been struggling mightily, but his presence is good news with Eric Rowe (groin) sidelined. It's still a delectable matchup for Jameis Winston.

Stephon Gilmore (ankle) is questionable for Week 5 against the Buccaneers.

He's been a limited participant at practice and should be active for Week 5 despite his questionable listing. The recipient of a $65 million deal this offseason, Gilmore has been an immense disappointment, earning PFF's No. 94 grade out of 110 qualifiers at cornerback. Only Indianapolis has allowed more points than New England this year.

Stephon Gilmore (questionable, groin) is expected to play Sunday against the Texans.

Gilmore was a limited practice participant this week but it looks like he'll be all systems go for Sunday's 1 PM ET start. It's a downgrade to DeAndre Hopkins' matchup.

Stephon Gilmore (groin) is questionable for Week 3 against the Texans.

Gilmore only practiced on a limited basis this week. There hasn't been much concern over him, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to play with this being the Patriots. Gilmore's status likely won't be known until Sunday's inactives.

Patriots agreed to terms with CB Stephon Gilmore, formerly of the Bills, on a five-year, $65 million contract with $31 million fully guaranteed.

It is a shocking move. Gilmore was arguably the best cornerback available, but he is coming off a down year and the Patriots usually do not shop near the top of the market. With Gilmore signing in New England, free agent CB Logan Ryan will certainly be looking for a new home. The future of free agent LB Dont'a Hightower is also in doubt.

Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Bears have or have had interest in free agent CBs Stephon Gilmore, A.J. Bouye, and Logan Ryan.

The message being they are trying hard to land a big-time cornerback. Gilmore and Bouye profile better as the No. 1 the Bears need, but Ryan would also be a big upgrade to what Chicago ran out onto the field last season. With a quality front seven they are positioned to bolster even more early in the draft, Chicago's defense could take a big step forward if the secondary is properly addressed.

SiriusXM NFL's Alex Marvez confirms the Bears are making a "big push" for free agent CB Stephon Gilmore.

Gilmore is seeking the big bucks, and at least as of this moment, the Bears seem most inclined to give them to him. Coming off a nightmare 3-13 campaign, the Bears appear ready to splurge on both sides of the ball. It could be a risky, potentially fruitless strategy.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole passes along "growing talk" the Bears are in pursuit of free agent CB Stephon Gilmore.

If all of these pre-free agency reports come true, the Bears have a lot of leaks atop their organization. They are seen as the clear favorites to sign both Gilmore and free agent QB Mike Glennon. Chicago needs a cornerback upgrade across from Tracy Porter. Bryce Callahan would likely then take over at slot corner.
Tue, Mar 7, 2017 01:22:00 PM

PFT's Mike Florio reports free agent CB Stephon Gilmore is aiming for $14 million-plus annually on the open market.

Gilmore wants more than Janoris Jenkins ($12.5 million per year) got last offseason and more than the $14 million annually Richard Sherman received in 2014. Only two cornerbacks -- Josh Norman ($15 million) and Patrick Peterson ($14.01 million) -- make more than Sherman, so Gilmore is probably looking to set a new mark for corners. Gilmore turns 27 this year and is drawing significant interest from the Bears. He's unlikely to re-sign with the Bills.
