Report: Indianapolis Colts trade CB Stephon Gilmore to Dallas Cowboys

Two-time All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been traded from the Indianapolis Colts to the Dallas Cowboys according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Dallas will send back a compensatory 2023 fifth-round pick in the deal according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

The 2019 Defensive Player of the Year joined the Colts in April of 2022 after spending a year with the Carolina Panthers in 2021. He originally signed a two-year, $20-million contract with $14-million guaranteed.

Prior to that he spent four years with the New England Patriots, winning a Super Bowl in 2018, and was with the Buffalo Bills for the first five years of his career.

Last season, Gilmore had two interceptions and a career-high 66 tackles for Indianapolis’ 30th-ranked defence in the NFL and gave up a career-high 245 yards after the catch. The Colts however were the 12th ranked defence in passing yards allowed.

In Dallas, he joins the sixth-ranked defence in points allowed and forms a cornerback tandem with former interception leader and Pro Bowler Trevon Diggs.
