Colts signing Pro Bowl CB Stephon Gilmore
Last team: Panthers (4th in NFC South 5-12)
The Indianapolis Colts have added a new fish to their off-season pond. This time they went on the defensive side of things with Stephon Gilmore signing him to a two-year, $23 million contract that includes $14 million guaranteed.
The former AP Defensive Player of the Year, five-time pro bowler, and velcro-like corner is now the Colts' new addition. The Colts made a couple of off-season moves by shipping out Carson Wentz after one year and the signing of Matt Ryan.
Is it safe to say that the AFC South is in good hands with those hands being the Colts? Houston ended last season 4-13, Jacksonville ended last 3-14, the Titans finished first in the division at 12-5, while the Colts ended second at 9-8. The Titans are the only team that I feel can challenge the Colts this coming season with the addition of Robert Woods in the wideout position.
Stephon Gilmore ended his 2021 season with eight played games,16 total tackles, and two interceptions after being traded to the Panthers from the Patriots on Oct.6. His season debut with the Panthers was in week 8. Gilmore then missed the last two games for the Panthers because of a groin strain.
