They’ll bring guys in for a visit and it’s usually an obvious ‘kick the tires’ situation….this feels different. – Joel A. Erickson on the reports that Stephon Gilmore met with the Colts on Wednesday
Colts owner Jim Irsay mentioned that a big name defensive free agent could be coming to the Colts if the financials work out. Is that “big splash” cornerback Stephon Gilmore? He’s one of the big name defensive free agents still on the market and would definitely fit the bill and check a big need that the Colts have on the roster. Gilmore reportedly was flown in for a visit with the Colts on a private jet on Wednesday afternoon, according to long-time reporter Josina Anderson.
I’m told the #Colts “sent a jet” for free agent CB Stephon Gilmore’s visit today with the team, per source.
Gilmore’s team visit was listed on the NFL’s wire.
