Gilmore is from Rock Hill, South Carolina. Gilmore is a two-time All-Pro and a five-time Pro Bowl nominee. The 33-year-old played for the Dallas Cowboys last season after being traded there by the Indianapolis Colts. He hit free agency this offseason.

Gilmore played for the Panthers in the 2021 season. He’s reportedly talking to the Panthers about signing with Carolina for the upcoming season.

Gilmore said earlier this offseason his “goal” was to return to the College for the 2024 season. But we’ll see if the lure of returning home trumps a rebuilding season in Dallas.
