Patriots, Stephon Gilmore reportedly haven't made progress on extension/raise


The Patriots will open training camp next week and Stephon Gilmore's contract situation remains one of the biggest topics with the team.

Gilmore is scheduled to make just over $7 million in 2021 and following sitting out all of the offseason workouts, including mandatory minicamp, he would like that to change.

But, it doesn't seem like any progress has been made.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, "there’s been no recent progress toward either extending Gilmore, or giving him a raise for 2021." The report does not that could soon change with people coming back from vacation in the coming days.

If Gilmore does not show up for training camp he will be fined $50,000 for each day that he misses, but Breer notes he could show up but take his time getting on the field, citing the quad injury he's covering from.

It appears Gilmore would like a full-on extension adding years to his deal, while the Patriots are only comfortable giving a bump in pay, including playing incentives, for this season.

We'll see how the next few days play out.
