Is Tom Brady about to have another old friend join him in Tampa Bay?
After Brady made his return to Foxboro last weekend, it was surprisingly announced on Wednesday that the Patriots were releasing Pro Bowl corner Stephon Gilmore.

After the Stephon Gilmore news was announced, the first thought by many was: how long will it take Tom Brady to recruit him to Tampa?

Stephon Gilmore hitting the open market mid-season is an amazing gift for a lot of teams.
Especially Tom Brady's team, his former teammate, that has a hospital ward open with all their injuries at CB. https://t.co/gOE8oCiUFs

Tom Brady-Stephon Gilmore reunion in the works?
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers could use to help to their battered secondary.
So far, the Buca are surviving. But it’s become apparent that the defense isn’t as dominant as it was last season, and a large part of that has to do with some injuries.
Stephon Gilmore wouldn’t be a fix-all for the Buccaneers, but it’s not a bad idea for the team to continue to stockpile talented players.
Make the call Tom.
