Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Mark Kaboly is reporting that the Steelers have reached terms with number three corner William Gay.
Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette is also reporting the deal, adding that the Steelers have agreed to a multi-year extension with Gay.
William Gay was the team’s 5th round pick in the 2007 NFL draft and split time in the starting role with Bryant McFadden in 2008. Gay assumed the starting role in 2009 and struggled.
Following Bryant McFadden’s return in 2010, Gay served as the team’s number three corner, and did a decent job there. The Steelers decision to bring Gay back means that Keenan Lewis, their third round pick in 2009, will struggle to make the team as the Steelers drafted two corners in the 2011 NFL draft.
