Maybe it's just wishful thinking but when Ezekiel Elliott decided to switch to No. 15 — which caused Trey Lance to change his number — it fueled the fire surrounding a potential return for Stephon Gilmore. The former 10th overall pick from 2012 spent this past season with Dallas and wore the No. 21, which was previously Zeke's number.

Gilmore played well in his one season but has yet to be re-signed and at 33 years of age, his options haven't been too plentiful. Outside of Jadeveon Clowney trying to get him to return to the Carolina Panthers, things have been quiet for Gilmore.

That includes on the Dallas front as well, unfortunately.

Outside of the jersey speculation, there's been little on Gilmore despite his assertion after the season ended that he would like to return. Dallas ended up re-signing Jourdan Lewis who played well down the stretch last year and expects Trevon Diggs back at 100 percent after suffering a torn ACL in Week 3. There's also DaRon Bland who had nine interceptions and five pick-sixes.

The Cowboys are strong at the position, which is why they didn't try and go after Gilmore early in free agency. But perhaps with his market dried up, they might be able to get a discount to truly bolster their secondary.
