Full quote
[quote]Agent Carl Poston to me on Chris Gamble informing him he wants to retire: “A number of teams have expressed interest in Chris Gamble. However, Chris informed me last night that he wants to retire. Even though he still loves football, he told me that he’s decided to focus on life after football. Chris has been a class act. I have represented him for nine years, ever since he came out of Ohio State. He’s been an ideal client and he was one of the best corners in game. He’s doing it the right way. He has taken care of his money and his investments to retire successfully, and now I wish him the best in his future endeavors.” —Carl Poston[/quote]

Re-sign him for a day so he can retire with a Panther jersey on, not a free agent.

Would we have gotten more cap savings if he had retired while under contract?

Either way, I wish Chris well in his retirement.

Like him class act and all but hell no, he retired after we cut him so we gotta pay his ass the rest of his contract wouldn't surprise me if that was his plan all along knowing he would be the most likely cut.

Too bad he didn't save us cap space by retiring before we released him.

Yes we would have saved the entire 11 million cap hit.

Wow, didn't see this coming but it's not a total shock. Playing pro football is a grind. I wish him nothing but the best.

Retiring at 30, that is the ultimate American dream. Very surprising, but thanks for everything Chris!
