Chris Gamble is retiring from playing in the NFL after being cut from the Carolina Panther's roster.

Chris Gamble has announced that he is retiring from playing in the NFL after nine seasons in the league.

The 30-year-old, who was cut by the Carolina Panthers last week, has confirmed that he will not be looking to join another team to continue his career.

His agent Carl Poston told ESPN: "Even though he still loves football, he told me that he's decided to focus on life after football.

"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."

The cornerback has battled a series of injuries during the last three seasons, restricting him to playing just four games last year.
