    Unhappy Swell - William Gay Supposedly Rejoing The #Steelers

    William Gay rejoining Steelers

    March 4, 2013 12:14 am

    By Ed Bouchette / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    It appears that cornerback William Gay will be rejoining the Steelers after spending one season with the Arizona Cardinals.

    Gay changed his Twitter account information to label himself a "cornerback of the Pittsburgh Steelers." Asked on Twitter by former teammate Ryan Mundy if he was returning, Gay answered, "Yea." He also wrote on Twitter that "I'm glad I didn't' sell my condo in Pittsburgh."

    He will be at the Steelers facility on the South Side today.

    Jerrold Colton, Gay's agent, said that there is interest in the Steelers but would not say whether Gay has come to contract terms with the team.

    With the Steelers possibly set to lose starting cornerback Keenan Lewis as an unrestricted free agent, Gay would give them a veteran presence as a former starter and nickel cornerback. Gay started at left cornerback in 2009, lost his job to Bryant McFadden in 2010 and regained it in 2011.

    He signed with Arizona as an unrestricted free agent before the 2012 season, and Lewis took his starting job on the left side.

    Gay, 28, was a fifth-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2007.

    Oh God. We've reached and embraced mediocrity. I'm hoping this has as much credibility as the Breaston signing did.

    I'd have no problem with this if the Steelers were planning to go with Lewis and Allen as starters and they were cutting Taylor loose, but I don't see them doing that. They keep hamstringing themselves with yearly contract restructuring instead of cutting bait with some of these overpaid and underproducing vets. Harrison should not be here this season but he will be.

    YES! this has been a major problem the last 3-4 years. And what William Gay adds I have no clue, even as a Nickle he seems like a downgrade

    I have to question the whole organization. From the coaches to the top with this Gay move.

    I always thought the guy stunk at his peak of his career and to bring him back, speaks volumes of the troubles this team has.

    They're not selecting the right players.

    They're not developing players.

    They're not evaluatng players correctly.

    And now they're bargain shopping.

    First it was Foote, then Randell El, then McFadden and now Gay... Foote wasn't such a bad move but, he showed no improvement for the team. All Foote meant was this, the Steelers allowed that position to fade away because they had no younger player selected or prepared to take over the position. And now your seeing it with Gay.

    This team is in trouble when they start turning back to retread players. I never thought Gay was worth the time and effort they spent on him from the start and if he is only a backup and not a starter, I still don't want him. Where now is the youth movement for this team ?

    This team is under bad management and get used to 9-7, 8-8 and 7-9 seasons. For you fans that never experienced the 80's Steeler teams, hold on your about to witness it. At that time we at least had a coach in Chuck Noll that could evaluate certains areas of talent but now.............yuk.
    Cowher could evaluate talent and not be lead by his nose. He just wasn't a playoff type coach or couldn't whatever when it counted but at least he had players prepared and the losing in my opinion was being out coached in the playoffs or the fact that Bellicheat cheated us for so many years. And ll other accounts, he had no Super Star QB except for Ben his last three seasons.

    Tomlin I believe likes everyone he meets and he'll go into battle with what he has. I don't believe he knows the direction of talent that is required for his team so he listenens to others or he just doesn't have it. Maybe it's on our general manager too or all upon him.
    I used to think he was the cats pajamas but now it's looking more like it was Cowher that should deserve all the praise.

    This all coming from a person that was glad to see Cowher go.

    I'm a baseball guy first and foremost so my opinion really doesn't hold much weight but I have no problem with this. Best case scenario Lewis resigns and Gay takes the place of the Victorian/King/Van Dyke mess we had occupying the CB depth spot last season. Worst case Lewis leaves and he comes in and competes with a hopefully more motivated Curtis Brown for the nickle role, in which Gay has shown to be at least capable. As long as there is no intention to have him line up outside, barring disaster (multiple CB injuries) of course, I see this just as a move to provide the defense with some depth. With so many other holes there is really no need for the Steelers to spend a pick on CB so this solves the depth issue without causing the use of a pick.
