Colts and CB Stephon Gilmore agree to two-year, $23 million deal

Just hours after it was reported that safety Darian Thompson visited the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, the team reportedly signed another player to add to their secondary.

Gilmore visited the Colts on Wednesday and reportedly attracted interest from a host of other teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams. Josina Anderson announced the news of Gilmore on Friday morning and also reported that the first-team double All-Pro had attracted interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, Las Vegas Raiders and Buffalo Bills.

In his 10 seasons split between the Bills, Panthers and New England Patriots, Gilmore made five Pro Bowl rosters and was also named 2019 AP Defensive Player of the Year. The 31-year-old has led the NFL in passes defended and tied for the lead in interceptions the year he won Defensive Player of the Year with 20 and six, respectively.

In eight games last season, Gilmore recorded 16 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defended. He recorded 427 tackles, 116 passes defended and 27 interceptions in 132 career regular season games.
