Another day and another Steelers unrestricted free agent is back in the fold as Steelers Digest is reporting that the Steelers have agreed to terms with cornerback William Gay. Gay was unrestricted and will presumably be back to compete for the nickel corner job again this year. Gay was chosen by the Steelers with the 170th pick (5th round) of the 2007 NFL Draft.
The Steelers once again choose to re-sign their own free agent corners as Ike Taylor agreed to term last week as the Steelers slowly transition to youth in the secondary after they drafted cornerbacks Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen back in April. It is a one-year deal for Gay and he will not be able to practice until August 4th per the new labor agreement rules.
