The Carolina Panthers have acquired Stephon Gilmore in a trade with the New England Patriots, who were unable to agree with the star cornerback on a restructured deal.

The Patriots initially were planning to release Gilmore on Wednesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter, but ultimately traded the four-time Pro Bowler to Carolina for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick.

Got to give them credit. The Panthers really are going all out to reunite Sam with his favourite targets. 

Darnold is a veritable lightening rod.  Attracting talent at every turn.

So they announced they released him,  but then traded him?  How is that possible?

BB is known for mumbling and the Boston Press is known for being hard of hearing.

“Planning to release” is not the same as “have released”.

Panthers are 3-1, almost 4-0 with their best player on the shelf.  They're thinking playoffs, not worrying about who to draft in the 6th round in 2 years...

Agreed, doubt they're concerned about the 2nd rounder the way Darnold is playing and I got a feeling they wont miss the 6th for the 2019 DPOY.

Coach Matt Rhule said he can't wait to get Gilmore on the field.

"I think anytime you can get a [former] All-Pro player for a future sixth, we're going to do it, right?" he said. "... This was just one of those things where it was too good to pass up. He's too good of a player and he's from here. Football character-wise, he just adds to the core of what we are."

It’s somewhat sad to see the Panthers burn all this capital on players when they’re going to get ****ed by Darnold when it counts. If they wanted to insulate themselves from an imminent disaster, they should swing a deal for an A-1 running back and let McCaffrey be the slot receiver.

Pats tanking?

They are very tight on the salary Cap - this saves them 5+ million this year in guaranteed salary. It also gets them something (not much) for a guy they said they were going to release as they couldn't come to deal. Considering that this is the same genius who let Brady walk over ego - not necessarily about the tank but about the BB.

How did Herndon net a 4th round pick and Gilmore goes for a 6th rounder 2 years from now. Insane! 
It was Herndon and a 6th for a 4th.

Also Herndon is 25 and healthy, Gilmore is 31 coming off quad surgery.

Good deal for the Panthers. Gilmore is from the Rock Hill SC area where he went to HS and played his college ball at South Carolina.

How bout a HS team that had both him (QB) and Jadevon Clowney on the team

I'm happy for you and Darnold. Go get a room. Darnold is a scrub.

and... Herndon is cheaper :-)
I'd just like to point out that Joe Douglas got a 4th for Herndon and Belichick got a 6th for Gilmour.
^^^^^
Herndon with a solid 0 catches on the year so far 
Yeah nobody is saying it was a better deal for MIN than Gilmore will be for CAR.
