It's a shame but Gamble was just too damn pricey.

Not true.

Case in point, Joe Flacco. He just signed a gazillion dollar contract extension. His cap hit this year? $6.8 million. So yeah, we could definitely do something with nearly $4 million in cap space.


Yes, and remember that more moves will be made after the draft when June 1st rolls around. Right now, they just need to look at FA's that can fill positional needs at a relatively low price. I expect no more than 1 noticeable FA signing between now and the draft. It'll probably be a versatile O-lineman.

The draft is still coming.

I can not believe what I have read in this thread, just yesterday you people were clamoring for Gamble to be cut already because he sucks and today you are sad that he was cut and that he was a great player etc. WTF. There are more flip flops on this forum than all of Taiwan.

We still have the draft picks we have to sign...and scrubs just to field a somewhat respectable roster.

Gamble being cut simply took us from being over the cap to now not being over. No real FA is coming without Gross, Beason, or Williams being touched( or another move not discussed here)

I think that's kind of an exaggeration..Most liked Gamble, but knew he wasn't worth it. I never ready anybody that flat out said he sucked, just that he wasn't worth the money, he was injury prone and that he could be replaceable.

I agree with most of that, doesn't mean I wont miss him because of all the memories.

About Three-Fiddy


Tree Fiddy - now you can sign the Loch Ness monster.

As for Gamble, I wouldn't mind San Diego kicking the tires on him, since Jammer/Cason look to be gone

Rivera loves former Chargers. Maybe we'll wind up trading (not betting on it, though).

Jammer's future is probably at safety. I wouldn't mind him coming back to SD and be in play for SS.

That works for me too.

I'm not the world's biggest Charles Godfrey fan.
