REPORT: Rams Are Interested In Signing Stephon Gilmore And Have Been ‘In Contact’ With Him

The rich are looking to get richer.

The defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams have reportedly been in contact with free-agent cornerback Stephon Gilmore ahead of the 2022 season.

If the Rams are able to land the Pro Bowl cornerback, he would play opposite of Jalen Ramsey and give the Rams two really, really good cornerbacks:

The five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro has played 10 NFL seasons for the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers. His best season occurred with the Pats in 2019, when he amassed NFL highs in both interceptions (six) and passes defended (20) en route to Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year honors.


Gilmore spent last season with the Panthers after New England traded him before the season. He played just eight games during an injury-shortened campaign that saw him start the year on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) after suffering a partially torn quad the year before.

Despite playing less than half the season, Gilmore found himself in yet another Pro Bowl. He had 16 tackles and a pair of interceptions on the year.
