The New England Patriots have just finished their disappointing season. Many would agree that 2020 was horrible, and the team struggled with too many issues throughout the entire season. Will things change in 2021? Head coach Bill Belichick is expected to make a few big changes and he will have to come up with the perfect solution for his veterans. When it comes to this group of players on the Patriots roster, veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore wrote a cryptic tweet. Fans panic. Fans are confused.
Gilmore has something to say about the upcoming season and experts are trying to understand what he was trying to say. The veteran cornerback took to Twitter to deliver his cryptic message.
Stephon Gilmore surprised everyone with his cryptic tweet
“Interesting year”? What does that mean? One thing stands for sure. Gilmore has a plan for his upcoming season and he will give his best to make it happen.
The veteran missed a chunk of the 2020 NFL season due to a partially torn quad. He sustained the injury in Week 15 and the Patriots ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Gilmore is under contract for the upcoming season. He will soon approach the end of his five-year contract with the team. There were too many rumors revolving around his potential trade.
The cornerback was brilliant in 2018 and 2019. He played in every single game and won the Defensive Player of the Year award, two Pro Bowl nods, and two First-Team All-Pro honors. Gilmore was playing his best football and had a key role on the Patriots roster. In 2020, the cornerback played 11 games, missed the end of the year, and ended up with a torn quad.
This leads us all the way to J.C. Jackson. He may be the Patriots’ top cornerback going forward despite the fact that experts aren’t biting into this one. He may be great alongside Gilmore, but Belichick will think twice before giving him a bigger role. The Patriots will have to come up with the most creative solution to the situation.
