An Inexpensive, High-Reward Gamble?March 6th, 2013
Just six days from free agency, everyone who bleeds pewter and red is now dialed in to what the Bucs might do to fix the worst stable of cornerbacks in history.
One name off the radar is Chris Gamble, who is expected to be cut by the Panthers because of his $10 million and change salary cap hit for 2013.
Gamble churned out an somewhat impressive nine-year career in Carolina as a starter, before missing most of last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery.
His strong cover skills are well documented, and he turns 30 this season.
For Joe, this is a guy the Bucs likely could get darn cheap and have him compete for a starting gig and provide depth. If he can regain his health, he could be a steal, plus he knows the division and could provide veteran mentorship in the locker room.
Unlike the Adderall Twins, Aqib Talib and Eric Wright, Gamble appears to have a squeaky clean history.
