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.

And you people wanted him back... head aint in it. Good riddance. Thanks for some good years though!


He's been in the NFL 9 years. How long does he exactly have to play before he can retire so people don't make dumb comments like this.

Mike Rucker retired when cut after 10. Mike Minter the same after 11. Is one year the barrier before you can be allowed to retire?

Why do people fabricate such stupid crap

This reminds me:

I have some kind of Curse of the Kurbs Jersey.

Got a Proehl, he retired.
Got a Beason, got busted up.
Got a Gamble, got busted up and retired.


No more jerseys...

If you wanted to wear a Matt Ryan, or Drew Brees, you would not lose fan-card (IMHFO)
