Report: Panthers expected to release Gamble

The SportsXchange

Carolina Panthers top cornerback Chris Gamble remains likely to be released as new general manager Dave Gettleman's first major move, according to The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person.

It also appears as if Gamble won't return for less money.

"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."

Carolina must shed $10 million against the salary cap by March 12. Gamble's contract includes a $10.9 million cap hit, and Gettleman can free up $7.9 million by cutting him. Other potential moves include releasing defensive tackle Ron Edwards and restructuring the contracts of linebacker Jon Beason, running back DeAngelo Williams and left tackle Jordan Gross.
