Stephon Gilmore: House went up for sale because ‘I just wanted to move to the city’

At least he answered the question.

Whether you choose to take it on its face is up to you, but Stephon Gilmore provided a brief explanation as to why his home went up for sale — with a deadline for offers set for immediately after the NFL’s trade deadline.

“I just wanted to move to the city,” Gilmore said. “I like the city . . . That’s why I made that decision.”

Gilmore’s standing with the Patriots has been a topic of conversation since before the season began. He missed a portion of training camp with what was described by those close to him as a “personal matter,” but soon thereafter was handed a $5 million advance in addition to the base salary he’d already been scheduled to receive.
