I know his cap is huge but I've seen it work in the past. Extend him on the cheap....move him....I would feel much better with him back there since he actually has some coverage skills as opposed to Hadookie and UnGodfrey, and Sherpooed Martin.

Just a thought....back to the Sudafed.

Gamble isn't known for being a ball hawking tackler. Pass.

With the way he has been injured the past couple of years he want last at safety.

I like it. Are you suggesting drafting CB or relying on the Joshes to hold it down?

I'd absolutely give him a shot at FS. Saying he's not this or he's not that is just bloviating until he actually hits the field and we all find out.

I think Gamble still has a couple of years left as a #1 CB. I don't want to go with Norman and Munnerlyn as the starting CBs next season.

Free safety is kind of a cerebral position. Gamble's not stupid, but he is more of an instinctive, reactive player.

I'd be willing to give it a shot. Iffy on whether it'd work.

Id like to see that.
Take a CB in the 2nd and move Gamble to FS if there's no FS you like in the 2nd.

Gamble has never been a good tackler, if anything he's been on the bad side of things

So no.

Cap figure and recent injury history might just make that happen.
