June 14 (UPI) -- New England Patriots All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore did not report to minicamp Monday and is not expected to attend additional mandatory practice sessions this week amid a contract holdout.

Sources told NFL Network, The Athletic and the Boston Globe that Gilmore was not present at the team's first minicamp session Monday morning in Foxborough, Mass.

Gilmore, 30, is entering the final year of his contract with the Patriots. He signed a five-year, $65 million contract with the franchise as a free agent in 2017.

The four-time Pro Bowl selection, two-time All-Pro and 2019 Defensive Player of the Year recorded 37 total tackles, three passes defensed, an interception and a forced fumble in 11 starts last season.

Gilmore missed five games last season due to injuries and underwent season-ending quadricep surgery in December. He is set to earn a $7 million base salary in 2021, which ranks seventh among NFL cornerbacks, according to Spotrac.com.

Gillmore spent his first five seasons with the Buffalo Bills. He led the NFL with 20 passes defensed and six interceptions in 16 starts in 2019.
