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


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!!!

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.
