Chris Gamble to Retire

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

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

Either way, I wish Chris well in his retirement.

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!

Not a coincidence...

He probably knew he would be cut or traded.

Injuries will do that to you.

A couple people have hit on it already. He's 30 years old, coming off injury, and he hasn't blown all the money he made playing. I don't think his head isn't into the game, it sounds like he's mature enough to realize his best days are behind him and it's time for the next challenge.

Not bad for a guy who scored 9 on the Wonderlic... :)

He gave us some good years but as a fan I'm not very happy that he chose to retire after he got cut rather than help out the Panthers.

However, I would have done the same thing as him if my head wasn't it and I didn't have the drive to play anymore

For some people it's all about the money and that's perfectly fine if you manage it well.

Good luck Chris!!!
