Whoa. RT @JosinaAnderson: Agent Carl Poston just told me that Chris Gamble informed him last night that he wants to retire.

Would not surprise me, he never had the excitement to play the game like many other had. Imagine how good he might have been had he actually acted like he wanted to play the game.

I for one appreciate what he did as a Panther and I will truly miss him on the field. Chris Gamble was a class act no matter what anyone says. Best of luck in your future endeavors!!! Applause

I think the John Fox scheme really wore on him. We all saw how much better he did once he got into Rivera's scheme, but then in his second year of that he missed 12 games. He's probably very frustrated, but I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to give it another shot somewhere once training camp comes around.

I think you guys are being really harsh. Yeah, he was never a vocal leader, but he led with his play. Some of you are acting like he was taking plays off (ala Julius Peppers). Gamble gave it his all on the field. When he was healthy we didn't have to worry about whoever he was covering. His play is definitely going to be missed.

He's just a reserved person. It doesn't mean he isn't passionate. I think he also thinks injuries will only be more probable and health is a top priority.

I'll never criticize a guy for looking out for his health.

I'm also happy we don't have to play him

Im shocked but I can't say this is completely out of left field. As others have said, he never really came across as someone who loved the game. He was more of an all around athlete type guy at OSU more so than a football player if that makes sense. I respect his decision.

Good for him. Retire in good shape with money at age 30.

I think he's awesome and it makes me have even more respect for him. I like the fact that he would retire as a Panther!

Class act and one of the best Panthers of all time. If he was a chirper like most CBs in the NFL he would have got more attention, thats the sad thing.

Guy showing his loyalty and saying "if its not with the Panthers, its with nobody." Wink

well if i were 30, made over 35m in my career, just had a major injury to put everything in my life into perspective, and got released by the only team i ever played for, i might retire too.

had a good career with us but i was hoping to see him have continued success on a contender. congrats to him on everything.

IMO one of the most underrated and underappreciated Panthers. Solid player throughout his career. Just did his job. I tip my hat to you gamble. One of the best Panthers dbs along with minter.

I wish him the best. Always liked the guy. We have some work to do to replace him. Nnamdi maybe?
