Neither actually. There was a character in a one-shot that people thought might be Nate Grey or Cable but it ended up being an original character who had rejected Xavier in the modern world. As for Gambit, the only thing I can think of was a similar cop-out. There was an arc where this guy could raise the dead and he raised what looked like some modern X-Men, but they ended up just being some mutants with similar powers. Gambit, Colossus, and Wolfesbane were among the teases, and someone else I think.
Unless you're thinking of Witness from Bishop's future, who is also not Gambit but his own character. I think he ended up dying in the Blinded by the Light arc that led into Messiah Complex.
