Sucks, but it's a necessary move. Gamble has had injury issues the last two seasons, is on the wrong side of 30, and has a big cap hit. That usually adds up to being a cap casualty.

This team is a mess. If you think we're having cap issues now, just wait until we have to sign Cam to a huge contract.

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


...'about to get paid' and getting paid are two different things.

I could also argue that they deserved to get paid a lot more than Gamble ever should have been.

Not his fault the Panthers are stupid in player management.

Gamble is a decent corner, he is not a Revis corner, and yet the Panthers paid him like he is and that is part and parcel why the Panthers are were they are today.

It seems as though the better teams find those 3-5 players that are indispensable and the rest are.

The Panthers hopefully will do the same thing now.

pretty much how i'm looking at it.

and before that gets interpreted as gamble hate, i've got nothing against him. i thonk he's talented, but he's not really been an irreplaceable part of the defense. whether the defense was doing well or not, the defense never seemed to take that much of a step backward when he wasn't on the field.

i think the front seven and to an extent rivera's D allow us to do pretty well with less talent in the secondary. that's not to say we shouldn't address it in the offseason, but the front 7 will make it easier on whoever is in the secondary.


This.

Agree 100%

Yes, inconsistent.

He is all time INT leader bc no other CB has that many years here.



LOL. And what does that say about those guys?? As many players that have played in our secondary, he has outlasted all of them because he is inconsistent??

Agreed, thats a great way to put it. Im not against releasing Gamble because its the right move for the team. He is expendable because our front seven has improved dramatically and makes things easier on our secondary. But all this down talking is real far fetched and sounds more like self opinion. You cant look at his career stats and say he hasnt been a great player for us or he would have been gone.
