Multiple reports have emerged that shed more light on the New England Patriots’ sudden decision to release cornerback Stephon Gilmore Wednesday morning.
Gilmore, 31, issued a statement to his Twitter account thanking the Patriots for his time with the team. But if the Patriots do end up releasing him, the move won’t be official until the 4 p.m. deadline for transactions.
Because of that, what the Patriots ultimately do with Gilmore remains up in the air. But it’s clear that, based on Gilmore’s own reaction, his days as a Patriot are coming to an end.
Here’s a rundown of all the fresh details coming out about Gilmore’s departure from New England and what may be next.
