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

    • I always said last year that Brock had a lot of potential to be good. And no it was not "she wants to bash Peyton" kinda stuff either even though many had blinders on to how the backup behind Peyton was more then adequate. I really really DID like how Brock looked at times and the guy has a great arm. He had his issues with a few games clearly and some bad moments (particularly in a few divisional games) and has work to do now being young and on a new team. But, I cringed hard when he signed with Houston. AFC South has 4 young QBs now with a lot of potential which is worrying to some degree.   Houston will be better at QB, period. You can't get much worse then they were last year there. They had Brandon Weeden for crying out loud in their game vs. us and they won. I am very interested to see their rematch with the Chiefs early in the season since Kansas City is another very very underrated team heading into the season who is solid on both sides of the ball and I think KC could be a legit SB contender with how the AFC currently looks. Keep in mind you don't always need to have the golden boy QB, Manning is gone now and Brady is the only one really left in the AFC with the super glossy elite resume. Big Ben is always hurt too. We might head into a direction in the AFC where strong defenses with "good enough" QBs get by, like the Ravens in 2012.   I have this strange hunch Houston could be an 11-5 type of team if they stay out of major injury holes but I would not bet money on it either with how recent history has been. But, I believe Houston has been 9-7 the last few years, all it would take is a few breaks for them to increase to say 11-5.   This isn't all based on preseason either, Houston had a good defense LAST YEAR and actually shows up to play strong defense at times. Brock also looked solid to me at times LAST YEAR and might only get better. Now you combine it all and Houston has more potential at times then Colts fans might often want to admit out loud. The Houston coaching staff is underrated too at times managing all these woeful QBs and injuries.   Of course not saying the Colts can't win the division either but our o line leaves a lot to be desired and the secondary can be a joke.   This isn't the old days with Manning/Dungy where 12-4 was a natural given right almost.     Narcosys mentioned the Titans being good. I have not paid as much attention to them and always figured they might be a year or two away. But, they have nowhere to go but up too.   The Jags baffle me, they have a lot of pieces that spell out "good team" but have never been able to put together this consistent win streak. Once a year though they give us fits. Last year they had a shot and then lost some game to the Chargers killing their chances, thats why the Jags baffle me.     Overall the AFC South is not going to be easy maybe as years past. The QB situation is getting better and the Colts are a little behind in this development around Luck as a team. I think Luck looks terrific right now and healthy, but seeing him knocked around on the field etc. worries me greatly.
    • I really only pay attention to what happens when the starters are playing significant minutes usually in the 3rd preseason game.  No one seemed worried about how poorly the starters played against Philly last season in the preseason.  But that same crappy team showed up in the first to regular season games.  Chuck put an emphasis on playing well this preseason in hopes to avoid the slow start again.  That OL is poor at best against a good front 7.  It's saying something when the plan was to play Luck into the 3rd quarter and Chuck didn't send him back out because he was taking such a beating.  I just don't see this team magically improving when the regular season starts.  
    • No.     We are NOT cutting Castanzo.       We just signed him to a NEW contact one year ago.   So,  the Dead Cap money would be huge.      We have to coach him up and get him back to his previous level of play.   We're not cutting him.     Get the thought out of your head.  
    • Why stop at posting this terrible thread twice?
    • I had to ask my wife to read the title of this post because I couldn't believe my eyes.  Yes she said, That is what they're asking.  Thanks hon, time to call it a day.
