Report: Panthers have made contact with Stephon Gilmore

The Carolina Panthers are reportedly reaching out to Stephon Gilmore, a veteran cornerback, about rejoining the team. Gilmore, who is 33 years old, played for the Panthers during the latter part of the 2021 season after being traded by the Patriots. During his time with the Panthers, he appeared in nine games with eight starts, recording 16 total tackles and two interceptions.

After his stint with the Panthers, Gilmore signed a two-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts and started in all 16 games in 2022. In 2023, he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys where he also started in all 17 games, playing 94 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. Throughout his career, Gilmore has played for several teams including the Bills, Patriots, Colts, and Cowboys. In total, he has played in 165 games and has recorded 140 career passes defended along with 31 interceptions.

Gilmore is ranked at No. 51 on PFT’s list of top 100 free agents and bringing him back to the Panthers could bring a valuable veteran presence to their secondary. It remains to be seen if a deal will come to fruition but Gilmore’s experience and skill set could be a valuable addition to the team.
