It doesn’t sound like the New England Patriots‘ situation with star cornerback Stephon Gilmore will be resolved anytime soon.
According to a report from Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Gilmore’s future in New England remains up in the air heading into training camp. Gilmore, 30, is seeking a new contract, though it’s unclear if he’ll receive one.
Gilmore is set to make $7 million this season, though he reportedly never planned on playing at this number.
According to the report, Gilmore’s status with the Patriots is “uncertain.”
Gilmore made it clear earlier this offseason that he is simply demanding what he believes he is worth.
“I just want what I’m worth, however that plays out,” Gilmore told NFL insider Josina Anderson. “Every player should be paid what they’re worth. That’s just how it is.”
Gilmore has been arguably the best cornerback in the NFL during his time with the Patriots. He’s been in New England since 2017 and made three Pro Bowls and two first-team All-Pro teams.
The Patriots are getting ready to report to training camp, though it’s unclear if Gilmore will be there when it begins.
New England opens the 2021 season on Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Dolphins.
