Patriots' Gilmore absent as team opens mandatory minicamp

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots opened their mandatory three-day minicamp Monday with their starting quarterback back from an injury, but one of their key cogs on defense was noticeably absent.

Cam Newton participated without restriction after missing the team's final three voluntary workouts last week with a hand injury. But Stephon Gilmore, the team's top cornerback and the 2019 NFL defensive player of the year, was one of several players missing.

Gilmore, who skipped the team's recent 10 voluntary workouts, is entering the final season of the five-year, $65 million deal he signed in 2017. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $7 million this season and is in line to receive an additional $500,000 roster bonus. But that $7.5 million would rank him 25th among NFL cornerbacks in 2021.
