Defensive back William Gay has spent 10 of his 11 NFL seasons with the Steelers, but he’s going to be on the move in 2018.
In a post to his Instagram account, Gay said that he’s been told he will be cut by the team. Gay called his time with the Steelers “one hell of a ride” and said he’s looking forward to trying for another Super Bowl ring with a new team.
Gay got his first after the 2008 season, which was his second professional season. Gay was a fifth-round pick by Pittsburgh in 2007 and played five years with the team before heading to Arizona in 2012. He returned to Pittsburgh the next year and has never missed a game during his 11 years in the league.
Releasing Gay, who played just over 27 percent of the defensive snaps last year, clears $1.75 million of cap space for the Steelers.
