BOSTON (CBS) — It would appear as though Stephon Gilmore’s holdout is over. The cornerback was among the Patriots veterans who reported to training camp on Thursday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
Gilmore did not attend minicamp and OTAs due to a contract dispute, hoping to get a raise for the 2021 season (the last of his current contract) or a long-term extension from the Patriots. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that there is no new contract for Gilmore, and the 30-year-old will take his time returning from the quad injury that ended his 2020 season early.READ MORE: 16-Year-Old Bicyclist Hit And Killed By Pickup Truck In Ipswich
