Steelers Digest Twitter feed is reporting that William Gay is tweeting that he has agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals, aka, Pittsburgh West.
Other sources were close to report the news, as even Gay’s Twitter feed does not appear to back this up as of 12:30 pm eastern time.
However, by 12:52 eastern time Scott Brown of the Tribune Review was confirming the move.
Former Steelers defensive backs coach Ray Horton is now the Cardinals defensive coordiantor. In another ironic twist to the story, the Steelers let Bryant McFadden go to Arizona in 2009 largely due to William Gay’s emergence.
Gay struggled in 2009 as a full time starter, prompting the Steelers to bring McFadden back via trade during the 2010 NFL draft. William Gay’s performance improved tremendously under the eye of Steelers secondary coach Carnell Lake, but so did that of Keenan Lewis, thus making Gay expendable.
