Gamble has never been good but has many defenders for some reason

The Panthers are projected to be $11.8m over the cap after counting for salary carryover from this year. Cutting Haruki Nakamura (clear $1.8m off the cap), Ron Edwards ($2.5m), and, sadly, Chris Gamble (a whopping $7.9m, pretty much have to cut him) would clear up $12.2m which gets us under the cap. Restructure Gross ($11.7m cap figure), Beason ($9.5m figure), and DeAngelo ($8.2m cap figure) would give us room to sign our draft class and potentially a few lower-tier FAs.

Most likely scenario IMO.

Gamble is as good as gone. He saves the most out of anyone. Beason and Gross will restructure. Despite these truths i would like to keep gamble over beason because of luke but its not possible

How much do you this gross/beason/dwill will be willing to restructure. I believe beason has 3.5mil guaranteed out of that 9.5. Can he just play for that?

Simply put, no we don't.

I love this team and have become attached to these players as well.however, it is past time to cut this loyalty stuff and get some fresh blood in here. We didn't do that with the staff but the roster needs it badly. Love beast ad gamble but its time to reconstruct the Carolina panthers.

Fact: Our 2012 defense was better without them.

I, like most people here, have seen most every play of the Panthers for the past 7-8 years. This is a message board of fans' opinions, nothing more. So it is hardly an ignorant statement, as you do nothing other than watch the games, just like I do. Like I said, he always has his defenders. He is like sacred or something, when it is fair game to bash any other backfield players we have, even when a player like Josh Thomas can play much better, for a fraction of a cost. I don't see how he can be kept in any case with the salary cap so all of this is moot anyway.

And much worse with them, the games with Beason were painful to watch.

Before he got injured

Chris Gamble leads all cornerbacks in yards allowed per snap in coverage at just 0.45. Prince Amukamara (0.48) 2nd & Champ Bailey (0.67) 3rd

2010 season.

If I’m really honest I think our third selection may be the best of the lot as quarterbacks have stayed away from Gamble. In 348 passing plays he’s only been targeted 52 times and given up only 22 receptions. Quarterbacks throwing into his coverage have a passer rating of only 48.4 (second only to Darrelle Revis’ 45.4)

So, yeah, that talking out of your ass isn't gonna work with me.
