RPT: Stephon Gilmore won't attend OTAs this week

The Buffalo Bills' top cornerback won't be in attendance Monday when the team begins organized team activities.

According to The Buffalo News, Stephon Gilmore will skip voluntary team workouts this week as his camp continues to seek a new deal with his first NFL team. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Per The News:
After another off-season of cornerbacks making bank, one can see why Gilmore would train away right now. The number continues to rise at a premium position in today’s NFL. 
Josh Norman inked a five-year, $75 million contract with the Washington Redskins. Janoris Jenkins signed a five-year, $62.5 million pact with the New York Giants. And a year ago, Darrelle Revis signed with the New York Jets at five years, $70 million. While the team did exercise the fifth-year option on Gilmore’s rookie deal — at $11 million — he’s scheduled to be a free agent next spring.
