William Gay has interest from four teams on the free agent market.  Over the past week he has visited with the Cardinals, Broncos and Titans.  The Steelers were also looking to resign Gay this offseason. Gay tweeted yesterday that he is done taking visits.  He is looking at four teams and that he will make his decision soon.  Gay likes Pittsburgh and wants to stay but he has other options.  Gay has already won a Super Bowl and could choose the money.  Any of the teams he chooses though could be playoff contending teams next season.  They would all be good choices for him.
