4. Stephon Gilmore, CB
Unlike Lewis, Stephon Gilmore has actually been doing his job in the secondary.
The two-time All-Pro defender has been terrific, racking up 60 tackles, 12 defended passes (his most since 2019), and a forced fumbled so far. He also carries a 55.4% completion percentage and 80.8 passer rating when targeted, highlighting his ability to remain effective even in his 12th NFL campaign.
He's also PFF's No. 27-graded cornerback on the year.
But even with another impressive season under his belt, Gilmore's return next season isn't guaranteed. As it stands, Spotrac projects the Cowboys to be nearly $14 million over the salary cap in 2024, making it hard to imagine how they can re-sign Gilmore, who carries a $9.92 million cap hit this season.
Could he take a pay cut to stay in Dallas? Sure, but Gilmore is also 33 and likely doesn't have that many big paydays left. If another team is willing to pay a premium price for his services, chances are he'll be in another jersey next season.
