Realistic Browns Trade Package for Stephon Gilmore Revealed
The New England Patriots have tons of questions to answer this offseason regarding their roster. With the Patriots potentially finding a new starting quarterback soon, the team could look to trade away its older talent as they start a full rebuild.
This reality makes cornerback Stephon Gilmore a trade candidate, and a possibly realistic package to acquire him has been revealed.
ProFootballFoucs predicts that the Cleveland Browns will trade for Gilmore this offseason. PFF sees the Patriots getting the Browns' 2021 third-round pick (No. 89 overall) and a 2022 sixth-round selection in exchange for the CB.
If the Browns are serious about solidifying their contender status in 2021, acquiring the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year is one way to do it. In that stellar 2019 campaign, the corner recorded 20 passes defensed (tied for the lead league) and 6 interceptions (tied for second in the leage), taking two of those picks back for touchdowns.
This would be a case of the rich getting richer, as Cleveland already has Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams patrolling its secondary. That being said, both have struggled with injuries, and Gilmore could provide another legit weapon to that defense.
The Browns have other areas to address, but a Gilmore addition would certainly boost their odds to win next year's Super Bowl.
