The New England Patriots are entering uncharted territory as the team sits at 2-4 and are in the midst of their first losing season since 2000.

The potential losing season has moved Bill Belichick and the Patriots to enter a rebuild and according to a new report from NFL insider Albert Breer, the Patriots will listen to a trade on “almost anyone.”

“The Patriots have been quiet thus far, but I’m told they’ve said to other teams they’d listen on almost anyone. The team did discuss Stephon Gilmore with other teams before the draft, and then again in training camp, before moving $4.5 million in his contract from 2021 to ’20. Other teams took that restructure as a sure sign that this will be Gilmore’s last year in New England. So if they lose Sunday in Buffalo, it’d be interesting to see if they’d move the timetable on his departure up.”

Meanwhile the 2018 Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore has reportedly put his house up for sale and is asking for offers before next Tuesday at 5:00 p.m., which would be an hour after the deadline is over.
