I can't believe there is even a bit of hate on Gamble. The guy has been a class act since he got here...and never a distraction and for the CB position that says a lot.

Good luck in your future endeavors Mr. Gamble.

You know every single one of you would do the same thing he did.

No surprise. He's been battling injuries and he's retiring young enough that he probably doesn't have any serious life-altering ones. Seems like a smart guy and the article on PFT says he was wise with his money. After all the cash Hurney gave him he's definitely set for life.

I think he already qualifies for the pension. I believe you only need 6 accrued seasons to qualify. I'd have to double check though.

He's been battling 89 everyday for a decade. I'd take the money and retire too.

will he still count next year as a lost free agent when they hand out compensatory picks?

This is pretty much best case scenario in my opinion. I've wanted a gamble jersey for a while. Now I can get one and it'll be good for all time.

Going to miss the guy. He probably thought it was time to hang things up. Maybe he didn't want to uproot and move his whole life. He will be missed. Thanks for for playing for us Chris! Enjoy after football life.

Dang, I was hoping that maybe he'd get a look from San Diego, I thought he could've been a good 2-3 year guy and a new vet CB leader. Looks like Gamble is taking the route of another former Buckeye, Robert Smith.

Gamble has always been a class act. Good luck in retirement.

A lot of hating go on up in here, maybe if Gamble retired before we cut him we could have had the full 11 used towards the cap, but I think that since we cut him, he didnt want to play for anyone else, Panther for Life.......

He shouldn't, he wasn't a lost free agent.

Really am surprised by this. i respect his decision tho. Salute one of my favorite players ever, underrated. Didn't wanna see him playing for another team anyway.

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



I looked this up (talked with others) and this is incorrect.

Dead money would be the same either way.
