Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore wants to play for Packers

The Green Bay Packers might be the preferred destination for cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who will either be traded or released by the New England Patriots.

Albert Breer of MMQB.com told 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston that he’s heard Gilmore wants to play for the Packers.

ESPN first reported on the potential release of Gilmore, although the move isn’t official and a trade is still possible.

Gilmore was the 2019 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Issues with his contract and a significant quad injury suffered last year have led to his likely departure from New England.
