You had to go 5 to 6 years back just to make a point.....still not working. If we are gonna cut Gamble its gonna be for cap reasons only. Not because of his play, get over it. He has been the best cornerback the Panthers have ever drafted.

But he is not worth his money. Thomas is better than any Panthers CB in recent memory and has confirmed to me that the key to stopping other teams vs. the pass is to get physical at the line. Gamble has always refused to do that.

That exactly relates to what i said about him being cut because of cap issues.....come on man. And you cant be serious about that Thomas comment, i like the guy and he has upside but your jumping way over the gun with that statement. Lets not overly hype another player just to down Gamble please.

I agree that cutting Gamble is probably the right thing to do, but let's not pretend that he was just another CB. I understand people's traditionalist way of thinking, but stats do not lie. I've said it time and time again... stats do not lie. They might not tell the complete truth, but they absolutely do not lie. Gamble has been a top 5-10 CB in the NFL the last couple of years.

And he will be scooped by another team the day after he is cut or maybe even sooner. Cap issues just make him really hard to keep. Unfortunate.

Gamble will restructure unless another team comes along that he thinks gives him a better chance to win. That goes for all the guys you want to cut.

We can't free up enough space by restructuring everyone. This is the bed we have made and we have hard decisions ahead of us. Restructuring contracts just pushes the hard decisions down the line and puts our cap in even worse shape. It's time to make those hard decisions.

I disagree, if you restructure you make the guys more marketable to get something in return. Also, the players have to make a decision to see if they can make more money elsewhere by not restructuring and I say no.

A proper restructure pays out less money for players on a decline, now I don't see big money restructuring until next year because I think he will only have 10 mill in guarantees left.
