The Patriots are taking care of one of their top players, without adding years to his deal.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Patriots are giving cornerback Stephon Gilmore a $5 million raise this year.

He’ll now make $15.5 million, with another $2 million if he repeats as defensive player of the year.

With corners such as Jalen Ramsey and Tre'Davious White ringing the bell recently with big extensions, the 29-year-old Gilmore was quickly becoming underpaid.

He’s still under contract through the 2021 season.

  1. If he keeps the same high level of plays this year and next year, he will go to a team that pays top dollars.

    Exactly. The player doesn’t care and who can blame him.

    DeVante Parker should get some of that money considering he owns him

    Many people forget that Parker played well against Gilmore last year due to Parker being a complete bust for 4 years. It will be interesting to see how it plays out going forward.

    Brady made tons of money & has squat to complain about…. Brady is gone because he didn’t get his way & felt he was entitled to get it based on past performance….. his ego & attitude last year was depressing to see as I love the guy & all he brought to New England….his wife was no bargain & a huge detriment to his overall attitude & approach toward the team… skipping OTA’s not putting the time in that he use to that actually helped get him to that level…..he didn’t get what he wanted & moved on & so have I…. the PATS are my team & whomever is on their roster… like I said, love Brady & ALWAYS WILL, but he’s not on my team anymore

  7. “I can remember a lot of Bills fans laughing at this signing a few years ago.”

    I was one of ’em. Every fanbase does that. Pats fans thought they got a steal w/ Gilleslie.

    Obviously, Gilmore panned out. We always knew he was a special talent, but he took a lot of plays off w/ the Bills. He seems to try harder with a contender.

    It will be interesting to see how he plays when the Pats fall out of contention this season…
