Panthers CB Chris Gamble Expected To Be Released
The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person reported earlier in the month that the Carolina Panthers' top cornerback Chris Gamble would likely be released as new general manager Dave Gettleman's first major move.
It doesn't look like Gamble will be returning at a reduced rate, either. "All indications I've received are that he's gone," Person told WFNZ-AM in Charlotte. "That they've kind of cut bait. ... I've not heard any talk about anything other than a straight cut."
The Panthers must chop roughly $10 million against the salary cap by the start of the league year on March 12. Gamble's contract carries a $10.9 million cap figure, and Gettleman can free up $7.9 million by setting him free. Gamble was one of the NFL's underrated stars as recently as 2011, but he's missed 18 games over the past three seasons.

i wouldn't have a problem signing the guy to a short, incentive-laden contract as a #2 or nickel back based upon how many games he can stay on the field.
tell him, 'your base salary is $1 mill each year and if you play in at least 12 games, you get another mill'.
not sure if they can structure it that way, but that would be ideal.
