For the second time in as many seasons, Stephon Gilmore will face the New England Patriots in a different uniform.
The cornerback has agreed to a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth $23 million, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday.
This contract includes $14 million guaranteed.
The 2019 Defensive Player of the Year will be on his third team in two seasons after the Patriots traded the Pro Bowl cornerback to Carolina Panthers in October 2021. Gilmore didn’t play until Week 8 due to a quad injury and played a total of eight games for Carolina.
He’ll make his first trip back to Foxboro since his New England departure this season, as the Patriots will host Indianapolis in 2022.
In 2021, Gilmore appeared in eight games for the Panthers and recorded 16 total tackles, two interceptions, and two pass deflections.
