A day after Bills head coach Sean McDermott indicated that Stephon Gilmore would reach the free agent market, there’s a report that the Chicago Bears will be loading up to try to get him under contract when the market opens March 9th.
That according to the Chicago Tribune. With more than $50 million in cap space the Bears are expected to be aggressive early players in the market. Whether they can meet Gilmore’s asking price, which is expected to be around $15M a year, remains to be seen.
The Bills said they would monitor Gilmore’s situation as he hit the market. Other clubs can begin negotiating with the agent for prospective free agents on Tuesday March 7th, but deals cannot be consummated until March 9th.
Chicago is also said to be targeting Tampa Bay free agent Mike Glennon as an answer at quarterback.
