Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore won’t be getting a long-term contract anytime soon, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport tweeted that contract talks haven’t progressed and Gilmore is set to play out the final year of his rookie deal.

The Bills picked up his fifth-year option, which will pay him $11.082 million in 2016. However, Gilmore is seeking a long-term deal that will make him one of the highest-paid cornerbacks in the league.

With training camp starting next Saturday, it’s unclear whether or not Gilmore will be in attendance. But a lengthy holdout seems unlikely as the Bills could fine him up to $30,000 per day.
