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.
