So from what i'm hearing from others we could essentially cut him, and then sign him for a cheaper deal assuming no one else snags him. What is his cap hit to just cut him? From what i understand some of that guaranteed money is a cap hit but you can spread it around? This stuff is really confusing, i've just now begun to understand it. I initially thought we could just cut him and not take that big cap hit.

If we cut him we would have the 3 million in dead cap space. I don't think we could resign him this year since he is not a free agent and we cut him. We could renegotiate or restructure though instead of cutting him. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Depends on how you define overrated. He lived up to what we paid him to be one year.

He got hurt. It happens. So he is over rated because we paid he before that? Maybe we can consult Nostrodamus before we sign the next guy to an extension.

2011 is the only year he played a season like he was paid to do...still just one year of what was a nice extension.

Otah was dominant when he wasn't hurt...Gamble got hurt, got benched for being a dummy, and was inconsistent early in his deal.

So now we are talking about Otah? OK.

Gamble is the most overrated player on our team

This is very far from true.

Best CB we've ever had, not that there's a whole lot of competition for that title.

This is just the way the NFL is. When you're on the wrong side of 30, have a big cap number, and have had injury issues as of late you're almost certainly looking at the ax.

Guys here's the thing. Gamble is probably a top 13ish corner coming off a season ending injury. He's getting up there in years but will likely still be effective. He's overpaid but would maybe be amenable to a home team discount. He's been in charlotte for 8 years for god's sake.

The Panthers will likely not find anyone better to replace him.

They need to restructure him and keep him here.

Mcdermontt likes aggressive corners, look at the seahawks, 49ers, Ravens corners -- all are aggressive. Gamble isn't.

I think that is what they are trying as option number 1.My understanding is the panthers are encouraging these hi cap guys to test the waters to see what they are worth elsewhere.

If gamble's agent comes back and determines he is worth 4 million per year and we offer 4,5 he would be better off restructuring.I do not see the benefit in cutting him if we can restructure his contract.He is as good if not better than anyone in FA.
