Gamble

He was a good, solid starter. Nothing more. In fact, I think he underachieved to a degree. Not great, just good.

I would have kept him if possible, but I do not think it was possible. This is a great example of how Marty Hurney's last few years cost the team--overpay the core, draft poorly, and ignore some positions at the top of the draft.

There are a lot of CBs in free agency---I think Gettlemen will wait a bit and sign one on the cheap--maybe Gamble.

It's pretty risky to cut Chris..some would say, a gamble.

(sorry)

Yeah he was pretty good but damnnn I didn't know people were this in love with him

He is a nine year starter that has had more ups than downs but his career arch mirrors the Panthers success. One season good then shaky the next and the last few years he has been injured and had a benching in the last three years.

He definitely was trending on a decline and football guys do not typically have a resurgance late in their career.

When the secondary got better with a Josh Thomas and most eveyone forgot Gamble was even on the team as it really never affected the defensive performance. In other words if he came back late last season I do not think the defensive secondary would have improved much except in name recognigition only.

With that said HOLY CRAP our secondary is in shambles..now I would beg for a Capitan Munnerlyn but he has to play nickle.

Is he from the Cleveland area? wonder if he would be target by a local team in the Ohios.

Wouldn't be shocked if Tampa picked him up.

Let trufant become our number one corner .. The Josh's battle for the number two spot and resign captain to play nickel.. With our pass rush this can be a good secondary... I hope.. Just a thought
