Stephon Gilmore is about to be released by the Patriots!

I cannot remember the base defense of the Patriots, but isn’t he primarily a man and not zone corner?

I know Snow developed a reputation for running zone last season, but that was more out of necessity because of our personnel at the time.  Drafting Horn and Taylor, paired with Donte, plus looking st our scheme this year, we are actually running a ton more man.  I dont have any stats on it, but just from observing the games, I would venture to say we are primarily running man now, and if not, it's gotta be real close.  Gilmore would be an incredible get, but I have a feeling he's gonna end up in Tampa, too.  I really hope we try though.

the guy wants to be paid and I do not see us paying him after we have so much draft capital invested in your CBs. 

what do draft picks have to do with FA signings

the cap is a myth if your owner has enough money and

/checks notes

tepper is fine

Why are they releasing him? I don't think it's a cap, contract or an off the field issue. That only leaves injury...

It’s definitely a contract issue.  He’s demanding to get paid and has threatened to sit.

He's still one of the best CBs in the NFL (when healthy)

Is he healthy? Who knows. 

I can't see CAR being a legit contender unless we offer him a huge deal (which is risky and doesn't play into us trying to maintain cap flexibility) or he really wants to be back in the Carolinas. I can see us offering him a one year loaded deal. The problem is if he wants to do a one year deal why not sign with the Bucs (whose secondary is now complete trash) or the Chiefs and be on an instant contender?

 

I'd love to have Gilmore mentor Jaycee though.
