I think this move is going to be huge. I love Gamble, but we need to move away from holding onto mediocrity .

Typo...

Point remains, D was strong in 2012 and 2010....without him.

He has never been consistent. Overpaid guy that only lived up to his deal one year


All time leader in INTs for the team inconsistent? If he wasnt consistent leading up to John Fox's exit i dont know what it is.

First. We're a young franchise, leading the franchise in interceptions isn't really all that hard. Jake Delhomme is the all-time passing leader after all.........Cam is already 4th.

Second. He has never been consistent after he got paid.

Third. He isn't physical, you need physical corners nowadays, especially with our scheme.

I wonder what it's like personally to ask a player to restructure? Do they tell them how it is? Or do they make it sound like restructuring is the better deal.... I mean of course it has to be the better deal or players wouldn't sign period. But do they say like "Do this or were going to cut you anyways and you could end up with any team for far less." Or do they go: "You can restructure and help the team out immensely and be on the verge of winning of a championship and if things work out this year, major money for you."?


Restructuring isn't an insult....they don't pay a player less. Restructure usually results in a player getting more guaranteed money

This probably has to be done. I don't blame the front office a bit, we can't really afford to pay that much for a guy who only has a couple of good years left.

That being said, there are several myths about Gamble mentioned on this thread that are somewhat ridiculous.

One, he has been a very good and very consistent corner for us over the years.

Two, he hasn't been injured very much. He missed 20 out of a 144 potential starts, before last year 8 out of 128. Thats hardly a lot. Its actually very good.

It might be time for him to go, in part due to our poor salary cap managment, but to say he hasn't been very good for us is ridiculous. If other players had performed as well as Chris, we would have a few more playoff wins.

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.


Axing Stew or Dwill does nothing to help our cap this year if anything it'll hurt us. And their going to be hard to trade. I think Deangelo's becomes easier to cut him next year, not sure. Maybe could restructure though. I think if we beef up the oline and start calling pro style runs again they will bounce back. Deangelo broke several runs the last few games when we changed the O up.

I never understood the great love, or dislike for that matter, for Chris Gamble.

...seen every game since the Panthers started, gone to most games at the stadium...few and far between did Gamble make the winning play for this team....frankly, all I remember of him was his attempt to be a QB a few years ago on special teams that ended poortly.

Compare and contrast Gamble's contract to performance vs thsoe of the Seattle CBs....those players make a fraction combined of what Gamble makes.

It's time the Panthers' understand what all other better teams know, the number of players who deserve those big contracts are few and far between...better to replace them and move on.....look at the Patriots and its hard to find players not named Brady who are getting major bucks.

Good move. Hope to see some more cuts like this as well as reworking some deals (see: pay cut, not just shifting cap hits into the future).

Championship teams aren't built by handing out massive contracts left and right. Just about every non-rookie contract on the books is bad (excluding the bottom of the roster league minimum guys). The sooner we start fixing Hurney's mess the better.

Is there anyway we can restructure him or bring him back after they release him to a lower contract?

I think he needs to be on the team but damn man with the cap number and the way we're up against the cap they have to cut him.

would get rid of him as long as they bring a good corner in to replace him.

Josh Thomas, Captain Munnerlyn (who i think we be resigned), Josh Norman, Godfrey and fill in blank at the other safety ...YIKES...Rivera won't make it to week 6

Okay, First name me another corner that has came close to being as good as he has for the panthers and rank in tops of the league?

How much of him being consistent had to do with John Fox's scheme and not using him right? Why would Ron Rivera and the coaching staff come right in here and say day one that they think Gamble could still be a top corner in the league? And it just so happens that he has played like it since Rivera has been here. But we fans know more than the coaches tho right?

Being physical is a great way to play, it doesnt mean thats its a necessity, if anything that says how good you really when you dont have to play physical and can still lock down receivers. And it all comes down to what the coaches call anyway, press man coverage isnt gonna be called every play and good corners are expected to be able to play good coverage in off man as well. Hell, we saw it plenty of times this year. So if they cant play off coverage too then what does that mean?

both of seattle's corners especially sherman are about to get paid out the ass once their deals are up- so that really isn't a fair comparison
