5-Time Pro Bowler Stephon Gilmore Wants to Return to the Panthers Next Season

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore is a man of few words; but when he talks, people listen. Prior to taking the field for Friday’s practice and his fifth Pro Bowl, the Rock Hill, S.C. native made it clear that he would love to return to the Carolina Panthers – his favorite team as a child.

Gilmore, the NFL’s 2019 Defensive Player of the Year, just finished his first season with the Panthers and is set to become a free agent in March. A Super Bowl Champion and two-time first team All-Pro, Gilmore brought a much needed veteran presence to a talented, but young secondary. Ge was voted to the Pro Bowl even after a shortened season due to injury.
