Gilmore skipped mandatory minicamp and voluntary organized team activities due to his discontent with his contract, per The Athletic and the Boston Herald. He expressed his frustration on social media, but has not spoken openly to demand a new contract.
Gilmore is playing on the final year of a five-year, $65 million deal, which he signed in 2017. Because New England gave him a raise in 2020, Gilmore’s contract will result in a $16.2 million cap hit in 2021, per Spotrac.com. He will receive only $7.7 million in new money, however.
New England has cornerbacks Gilmore, J.C. Jackson, Jalen Mills, Jonathan Jones, Myles Bryant, Joejuan Williams and Michael Jackson, among others.
