William Gay is returning to the Steelers.
Gay, a cornerback who was cut by the Cardinals last week, said on Twitter that he’s back with the Steelers, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft. Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Gay will be at the Steelers facility today, and Gay’s agent said there’s mutual interest, although he declined to say whether a contract has been agreed upon.
Although Gay started 15 games for the Cardinals last season in the first year of a two-year contract, Arizona decided to cut him rather than pay him the $3.225 million he was owed in his second season.
Gay played for the Steelers from 2007 through 2011 and started 15 games in his final season in Pittsburgh.
