Former Carolina Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble is retiring, according to media reports.


Gamble, who turns 30 today, is walking away after nine NFL seasons – all of them with the Panthers, who drafted him in 2004f out of Ohio State. Carolina cut Gamble last week to get under the salary cap, but he figured to draw interest from teams looking to beef up their secondary, especially at cornerback.


Gamble’s agent, Carl Poston, told ESPN today that his client preferred to walk away from football.


“A number of teams have expressed interest in Chris Gamble,” Poston said. “However, Chris informed me last night that he wants to retire. Even though he still loves football, he told me that he’s decided to focus on life after football. Chris has been a class act. I have represented him for nine years, ever since he came out of Ohio State. He’s been an ideal client and he was one of the best corners in game.


“He’s doing it the right way. He has taken care of his money and his investments to retire successfully, and now I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
Gamble holds Carolina’s career interception record with 27.
