New England Patriots top cornerback Stephon Gilmore seems open to a position change. He’s arguably playing like the best cornerback in the NFL, which means he’s making life difficult for receivers. Still, he playfully told 98.5 The Sports Hub that he doesn’t think receiver looks that hard to play.

Gilmore has played quarterback in high school and converted to cornerback in college. He’s never played receiver. But he said if coach Bill Belichick asked him to play receiver, he’d “do what’s best for the team.”

Before fans get too excited, I’ll say it: there’s no way Gilmore is converting to receiver. They like him where he is as a shutdown corner.

Even though the Patriots are in a tough situation at receiver and tight end, they are not going move Gilmore away from his natural position, where he has been outstanding. It is a funny concept to consider. Gilmore has four interceptions, and is running routes as well or better than the receivers he is covering. For example, Gilmore had more receptions (an interception) than Amari Cooper (2 targets, 0 catches) in their Week 12 matchup.

This is the time of year to tinker with a top cornerback. But during 2020 training camp, maybe they should give it a spin.
