Free Agent Cornerback William Gay Headed to Arizona?

Dennis Tresca@dtrescaCorrespondent IMarch 30, 2017

A tweet by former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay, posted in the early hours on Sunday morning, may have revealed his next landing spot.

"I'm going to miss the final four to support my girl@natashahastings at #TexasRelays .... O yeah by the way I'm #Birdgang now west coast," Gay tweeted.

It appears as if Gay has made his decision to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. Although no official announcement has been made at the time this article was written, the move makes sense for Gay. He would be reuniting with ex-Steelers defensive coordinator Ray Horton. He already knows the system and would be able to step right in and fill the hole left by Richard Marshall, who signed with the Miami Dolphins this offseason.

Gay would easily be the starting corner opposite Patrick Peterson to start the season. After Peterson, the list of defensive backs on the Cardinals' roster is weak a plethora of backup talent: A.J. Jefferson, Michael Adams, Marshay Green, Korey Lindsey, Crezden Butler and Greg Toler, who is coming off a season-ending knee injury.

Gay is a fast and very physical defender who will only help improve a young up-and-coming defense in the desert. If this news holds true, he will be a welcome addition to the Arizona Cardinals organization.
