Gay to Cardinals
- Updated: March 25, 2012
William Gay tweets that he’s joining the Cardinals
Twitter has become the preferred avenue for athletes to announce their plans this off season and William Gay is not averse to hopping on board the trend.
Early Sunday morning, Gay tweeted that “O yeah by the way I’m #Birdgang now west coast,” which, when translated out of Twitter-speak, means that he’s decided to play for the Cardinals in 2012. There’s been no official confirmation from the Cardinals, but they were one of several teams pursuing the free agent cornerback in recent days.
Gay started 15 games for the Steelers last season, but he projects to be a replacement for Richard Marshall in the nickel for the Cardinals. Patrick Peterson and A.J. Jefferson have the starting spots well in hand and Gay gave up a fairly high completion percentage to the receivers he covered in 2011. He could also see some time at safety, especially if Greg Toler returns from a torn ACL with his game totally intact.
The move to Arizona reunites Gay with Ray Horton. The Cardinals defensive coordinator was his position coach in Pittsburgh before moving to Arizona to work with Ken Whisenhunt, another former Steelers assistant.
