Chris Gamble CB-Worth a look?

28 posts in this topic

Charlotte Observer reports CB Chris Gamble and his $7.9 Million dollar salary will likely be their first cap casualty. Gamble only played 4 games last year, but has pretty solid over the years. He is 29 years old. Not worth $8 million, but would he be an upgrade for us and worth looking at?

I'll confess ignorance, and a laziness preventing me from researching for myself... Why only 4 games this year? And what convinces you he'll play for less than the $7.9M he made in 2012? If he might, why would he choose the Colts? And what are you suggesting Grigson ought to see in him to make him a value?

Gamble is a gamble..

 

That is exactly the same what came to mind mind when reading his name.

 

I think there are better prospects in free agency.

Gamble is probably the Most Unharalded Under appreciated Corner in the league.

 

He ran a very slow 40 as at his draft...like a sub 4.7 but has been a shut down corner since his sophmore season.

 

And When I say Shut Down, I mean like Darell Revies Shutdown.

 

But at that age, he is only gonna get slower, so I'd rather get a Daunta Robinson who is more well know but not as good as Gamble, because he can keep up with the fastest reciever in the league.

I don't know about Lewis, but Smith is wanting 8-10 million per season. Smith has great size for a CB, but he isn't worth what he is asking for and I don't know how he even thinks he has a leg to stand on by asking for that much. In 2011 Smith was rated 105th out of 109 CB's and in 2012 was rated 76th out of all CB's. He's young and big, but somebody would be taking a huge risk signing him for anything over 6 mil. per season and personally, I hope it's not the Colts. Here's a piece I posted here while back.

 

But here's the problem: Smith ranked as the 76th-best cornerback in the league this year, according to Pro Football Focus (he was even worse in 2011, ranking 105th out of 109 cornerbacks). Salguero points out that Smith performed admirably on Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald and Cincinnati's A.J. Green early in the season, but after that, Smith had nothing.

I'd pass he's injury prone.

No he's not. Seriously, do people not even look things up before they say it?

Everybody in the league that doesn't have QB next to there name could easily fall under peoples definition of injury prone.

I really like Gamble, but the recent injury and his age make some other players more attractive.. There are a lot of FA corners to look at... I wish we could turn the clock back on this guy though because he can play...

who is? honestly i see a lot of big names who are not that good IMO...not a fan of DRC, Mike jenkins,...im okw ith cary williams but i think people mention him a lot because a) The Pagano connection b) he is big c) they know the name...none of that has anything to do with the quality of play ...im not saying he is bad but i dont think he is that good either.

 

sean smith? no way! the amount of money he wants is insane... i kinda like Keenan lewis a lot but there is still uncertainty with him since he has only played as the starter this last season..i think 2 seasons ago he also played a lot but i think as nickel? could be wrong

Any team stupid enough to give Smith 8-10 million per year, is a team Grigson needs to have on "trade speed dial"

Brent Grimes, Tracey Porter(if he could play a whole season), Sam Shields (if he could play a whole season) as far as FA's go, as far as draft picks go

 

1.Xavier Rhodes

2.Dee Milliner

3.Johnthan Banks

4.David Amerson

5.Tharold Simon

6.Sanders Commings(but he best have his off field issues behind him)

 

all in various rounds

 

In that order

He is alright, I dont think he has the skills coming out to warrant us picking him, Lacks size and press skills and inconsistent when tackling

Rhodes is wayyy below milliner. Milliner is by far the best corner in the draft. Truant should be on the list.

Yeah, no. Milliner is a top five pick most likely, top ten for sure. Rhodes may not get picked in the first rd.

No, it's because Milliner is a top 10-5 talent and Rhodes is a fringe first rounder. Your statement was just too wrong to even reason with.

Yea I like Rhodes too....just not as much as Milliner. Milliner is just a more complete corner IMO.

if Davis stays on the left side like he did most of latst season... Andre Johnson is gonna murder Grimes, way too phisical for him same with Britt... I like Porter but that heart disease is disencouraging and constant injuries same with shields... i think our best FA option is kenan lewis and Shields suppossing he stays healthy which like you said is not a given

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
