Steelers Should Keep William Gay In The Slot

The Pittsburgh Steelers look awfully smart one year out for having re-signed William Gay last offseason, turning in arguably the best year of his career in 2013 and stepping into the starting lineup in representative fashion when Cortez Allen was injured, and then again when Allen struggled on the field.

Steelers End Of Season Player Exit Meetings – CB William Gay

By Matthew Marczi End-of-season player exit meetings are not something that we are often privy to as outsiders of the football world. Generally, we only get a glimpse into that world when a player is asked by a reporter how the meeting went, if the player is willing to discuss it. Still, it’s not generally a hard concept to grasp, and we have a pretty good feel by now of how Mike...

Veteran CB Gay making big impact in 2nd stint with Steelers

William Gay doesn't paint with a broad brush. Instead, he splashes the canvas with simplistic colors void of interpretative shades. In reality, the Steelers' veteran cornerback envisions most everything on the football field as black or white. There are no gray areas, no room for ambiguity. He either makes a play or he doesn't. He either shuts down a receiver or he...
