Chris Gamble retires after release from the Carolina Panthers

Cornerback Chris Gamble was released from the Carolina Panthers last week in what is considered to be a salary cap maneuver. 

Although he would not have a problem finding work, Gamble has decided to walk away from the field after dealing with a recent rash of injuries.

Over the past three seasons Gamble has dealt with shoulder, ankle, hamstring, and concussion problems.

Through it all, he remained a starter on a Carolina team that is now forced to rebuild their secondary through cheaper free agents or rookies selected in the draft.

Gamble’s agent Carl Poston told ESPN that the move was the smart one to make.
The expanded statement is below.

“Even though he still loves football, he told me that he’s decided to focus on life after football,” said Poston.

“He’s doing it the right way. He has taken care of his money and his investments to retire successfully, and now I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

Gamble’s eight year career resulted in 508 tackles, four forced fumbles and 27 interceptions.
