[quote][b]League sources expect Gettleman’s first major move to be the release of veteran cornerback Chris Gamble, which would free up $7.9 million in cap space.[/b] After that the decisions get trickier, such as whether to keep both high-priced running backs or part ways with franchise rushing leader DeAngelo Williams?

Linebacker Jon Beason and offensive tackle Jordan Gross, two of the team’s captains, could be asked to restructure their contracts. And a number of other starters could be on their way out as cap victims.[/quote]

This probably will make adding a new defensive back much higher of a priority this offseason.

Not surprised.
Will be a good move to do so.

Get a guy like McKelvin and Phillips/Chung in here on 1yr deals. Secondary will improve.

Think I'ma be sick.

Guess it has to be done, though. Definitely one of my favorite players on the team and the league. Guess my Gamble jersey is worthless now.

I'll take that off your hands. :)

The only jersey I have is a D-Lo jersey. I could be out of luck soon too.

Although both would be remembered as Panthers after they retired, regardless of where they complete their careers. Their jerseys will become usable again after the players retire.

he'll probably wind up a pro bowler if he signs with a popular team. he'll be signed fast and for good money.

whatever. thus begins the painful process of turning this thing around.

Chris Gamble was my first draft pick as a diehard Panthers fan. (Something just turned on inside me just prior to the start of our SB season making me a diehard)

Was always curious if it'd make me feel old when he retired (if he did so by natural means)

As for the cut, I'm meh on it. Gives us some air. I'm assuming we have a contingency plan as well. Rhodes, Trufant in the 1st, perhaps?

Wouldn't surprise me if the Bucs signed him after we release him.

Completely rebuild.

Axe stew AND dwill, dare I say.

I honestly think neither are extreme threats anymore. I remember they were both subject to break huge runs any second, now they fight for every yard they can get.

Sucks to see him go, I've been a big Gamble fan from his college days. Funny thing in Madden 04 after the first season I imported the draft class from NCAA 04, my first round pick was Gamble and it blew my roommates minds when Carolina actually drafted him.

Would be great if he would resign after the release, although unrealistic considering his market value.

When was the last time he was here?

Bad combination of salary and injury, and he's not the only one you can say that about.
