All you have to pay him is 7.95 million in 2013 and 8.9 in 2014. Since none of it is guaranteed you aren't obligated to pay him any of that and you will likely get him for a 3rd or 4th rounder. Pretty cheap really. If we were not in cap hell we wouldn't be letting him go,

Are you talking about us? Or another team. We can't afford him anymore and i dont see another team paying that much for the production he would have

He can negotiate a new deal with a potential trade partner. That would not be a significant obstacle.

Keep in mind he has no sure earnings if cut, so he would probably take a modest deal with a nice chunk of upfront money.

For someone else, assuming they didn't renegotiate his contract as a condition of a trade. Our cap hit is 10.9 million because we are still obligated to pay the last of the guaranteed money. So for us it is too much but for a team with a lot more cap space who doesn't want to shell out a bunch of guaranteed money it could make good sense.

Gamble is not over rated but he is coming off and injury and he is old by NFL standards. Not going to get much in a trade.

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.

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

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.

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.
