Gamble is a top 5 CB. I'd try to restructure or extend him WAY before I considered letting him go.


That isn't really true....

Would you say he was a top 5 caliber in 2012 before getting hurt?

Would you say e was top 5 caliber in 2010 when benched?

He has a top 5 caliber year in 2011. Career wise, only one season has he played up to his contract.

Gamble is on the backside of his career and is costing a fortune. Lets hope these young inexpensive players develop.



Exactly, Gamble is also not "young" anymore. I wouldnt want to pay him that chunk of money next year when his age is up there and we don't know how many games he's going to play for us even though he has played pretty damn well. If these young cbs we have on the field now can keep playing at a high level , and gamble will not take a pay cut, cut him or trade him for whatever. Save the cap and use it on a younger cb through FA.

Two reasons to Extend Gamble. One, he is still a starting caliber CB. Two, he is veteran leadership for a yourng secondary.

Gamble was the best CB in the NFL statistically before he got hurt this year. Someone posted the numbers before he went on IR. And holding that 2010 season against him with a lame duck coach and 2-14 season is kinda petty. Career wise he has been a great player for majority of his career, if not, what did he do the first 6 years he was here to get the contract in the first place? The whole not worth the money talk is petty as well, Darrelle Revis is the best CB in the NFL but he still isnt worth the insane contract the Jets gave him, they are not that good and he is on IR too.

Not something I do. I may disagree with someone, but I do it respectfully. Not that hard.

his 2011 and 2010 were very similar statistically. His 0.45 yards per route run (per PFF) was a league best when he went out.

Glad that the team is playing well, and it makes some sense (Munnerlyn was very good in the slot before Gamble went out) that there are some step-up players, but there's no reason to let your best DB go just because of a few good games out of others. You do need more than one.

Point remains, you can't call him a top 5 CB.....when he only showed up and did it once.

Gamble was great in 2011... But if 2011 didn't exist.....he would be just your standard overpaid player. Good but paid to be great. I am not in favor of paying big money for older players....when young ones can do the job.

Well, stats only take things s far....

Let me ask it this way....when Gamble was benched in 2010 and now hurt in 2012.....was he really missed? D was fine then and so far okay now. Why pay old guys big money when there impact isn't glaring when not on the field?
