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. Oct 14 - 3:50 PM

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.
Oct 5 - 7:05 PM

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.
Oct 4 - 4:22 PM

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.
Sep 24 - 8:31 AM

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.
Sep 22 - 4:50 PM

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.
Mar 9 - 9:01 AM

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.
Mar 9 - 8:27 AM

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.
Mar 7 - 6:04 PM

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.
Mar 7 - 1:22 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.
Mar 5 - 1:17 PM

Citing conversations with "several sources across the league," the Chicago Tribune expects the Bears to pursue CB Stephon Gilmore in addition to QB Mike Glennon when free agency opens on March 9.

NFL Network previously reported Chicago's interest in Glennon. Gilmore is the No. 2 free agent cornerback behind A.J. Bouye, and he would immediately take over as Chicago's top corner across from Tracy Porter. The Bears missed on Janoris Jenkins last year, and Gilmore profiles similarly as an inconsistent cover man with elite tools. The Tribune anticipates Gilmore commanding "close to $13 million per season." The Tribune also expects Glennon to be the Bears' "top target to replace Jay Cutler" on a deal potentially worth $10-12 million annually.
Mar 3 - 1:52 AM

WGR 550 Buffalo reports the Bills are unwilling to meet free agent CB Stephon Gilmore's asking price.

Gilmore wasn't franchised but the Bills have been in extension talks with him. With just $21 million in cap space, re-signing him could prove difficult. Gilmore is targeting top-five corner money.
Mar 1 - 5:35 PM

The Buffalo News reports the Bills will not use the franchise tag on free agent CB Stephon Gilmore.

With only $21 million in cap space, the Bills apparently believe they couldn't afford the roughly $15 million tag. It's a mild surprise, though it could also be an indication the sides are making progress in long-term talks. Reportedly seeking "top-five" cornerback money, Gilmore is Rotoworld's No. 3 free agent corner.
Feb 28 - 6:56 PM

WGR 550 Buffalo's Sal Capaccio reports free agent CB Stephon Gilmore is looking for top-five cornerback money.

Josh Norman is the league's highest-paid corner at $15 million per year, while Darrelle Revis landed a position-best 55.6 percent ($39 million) guaranteed when he returned to the Jets. Last summer it was reported Gilmore wanted Norman money, and it sounds like he's still aiming for that with the inflation of the salary cap. The franchise tag is expected to come in at around $14.31 million. The Bills would have to clear some cap room to tag Gilmore.
Feb 17 - 9:49 AM

Free agent CB Stephon Gilmore says he has no particular hopes for the open market.

Except to get paid, of course. "Whatever happens is going to happen," Gilmore said. "But I want to be wanted wherever I go. I put it in God's hands. If it's somewhere else, it is what it is." Gilmore is ready to play the game, not throwing any bouquets Buffalo's way. The franchise tag is a strong possibility.
