New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore decided to put his home on the market. His move added fuel to the fire, and fans started making predictions about Gilmore’s potential departure from the Patriots. Will head coach Bill Belichick trade his star cornerback?
Gilmore’s search for a new home sparkled speculation, and the whole thing made fans remember TB12. Former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady put his home on the market and then left the team. Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Will Gilmore follow his footsteps?
The cornerback discussed the rumors during his first media availability. Gilmore had one reason to do this. It looks like the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year just wanted to move to the city.
“I just want to, you know, move to the city. So, I like the city. So, you know, it’s one place I want to go. That’s why I made that decision,” Gilmore said.

The veteran suffered a knee injury Oct. 29. He had to stay on the sidelines for three weeks. His role with the ream is not hanging in the air. Head coach Bill Belichick likes him a lot and respects his talent. The whole thing happened before the trade deadline, and the Patriots played against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8.
Gilmore has been pretty busy, teaching his young teammates how to win. That’s why Belichick would love to keep him around.
“I mean, you know, I wasn’t able to play. I wasn’t physically ready to play these last couple of weeks. You know things happen, you got to adjust to it. Nothing would keep me off the field from playing with my teammates. So, that’s one thing that stuck with me. I’m just happy that I’m progressing and getting better, and looking forward to this week.”
Gilmore hopes to join his teammates in Week 11. New England is having a road game against the Houston Texans, and NFL experts predict a win for Gilmore’s team. This victory will bring the Patriots to .500. Gilmore may take part in the game and his veteran experience will be of great help for the team.
