The nine year veteran corner has chosen to retire from the game rather than go through free agency. This move takes a Titans free agent target off the board. It's really too bad that he chose to retire as he could've helped the Titans tremendously though. Gamble's retirement surely changes the Titans plans on the eve of the free agency period. He had a good career for the Panthers and is their all time interceptions leader.
As for the Titans, it's the next man up. If I were Ruston Webster, I'd go after Steelers free agent corner Keenan Lewis. He played well for them as a first time starter in 2012 and is just 27 years old. Another option I'd take a look at is Greg Toler of Arizona. Toler is a good third corner to have and was underrated on a good Cardinal defense. He could alternate with Verner as the nickel corner. In a move that would make August happy, former Commodore DJ Moore could be another cheap signing that could pan out. Perhaps there is a Cary Williams reunion tour in the offing after a successful stint with the Ravens.
