Report: Cornerback Restructures Contract

Another New England Patriot is restructuring his contract

Per ESPN insider Field Yates, cornerback Stephon Gilmore converted a portion of his salary to a bonus putting more than $5 million towards the cap.

It gives the reigning Super Bowl champions salary cap relief in 2018 and 2019. But in 2020, things get dicey with a potential out in Gilmore’s contract at a whopping $15,341,668 of dead cap and a huge $18,670,833 cap hit. A hit increase of over 50 percent in 2019 at $9,170,833.

Gilmore has been a great fit for the Patriots when he came over from the Buffalo Bills in 2017. Often considered among the top tier cornerbacks this past season, Gilmore earned First-Team All-Pro honors which is the first team he has received this accolade.
