Davante Adams Recruiting Stephon Gilmore; Packers Reportedly Favorites

'Call me'


Oct 6, 2021

Stephon Gilmore to the Packers?

That’s what Davante Adams wants, and he might get his wish.

The Patriots are set to move on from Gilmore before 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. Initial reporting indicated New England planned to release the star cornerback, but a trade should not be ruled out.

Green Bay immediately emerged as a potential landing spot for Gilmore. And Adams, the Packers’ superstar receiver, is doing his best to make it happen.

“Call me,” he wrote in a reply on Gilmore’s farewell post.

Adams might not even have to recruit Gilmore, as the Packers reportedly are the favorites to acquire Gilmore via trade or free agent contract.

Check out this tweet from Greg Bedard of Boston Sports Journal:

So, why is this happening? Why are the Patriots, a team with iffy cornerback depth, parting ways with one of the best in the game?

Well, there are multiple reasons, including the impending return of linebacker Jamie Collins.
