    William Gay cut by the Cards

    Would you cut Taylor and sign William to a minimum deal? This would save cap space, but our starters would be Allen and Lewis(Assuming he re-signs) with Gay being our nickel corner (his strength).
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Not a bad idea if you have to. Plus Big Play Gay will get you some turnovers. He might also get completely burnt from time to time.

    But I wouldn't do it if there's room to keep Ike along with the other players we want. Because Ike is still one of the best in terms of size, athleticism, and tackling and he fits Lebeau's system perfectly.

    If needed, I'd cut Keisel first, Hampton second, and Ike 3rd. But I'm not sure we'll have to. Unless we're planning to target some FA that no one knows about.

    No, but I would cut Taylor and draft Darius Slay to give the Steelers a promising young talented trio at CB. There's nothing about William Gay that makes me want him back with the Steelers. The best thing about him is the fact we may get a comp pick for him.
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

    Absoluetely NOT!!!! It was a good move to let him go. No need to bring back a now even older, less than mediocre player. He may have had a decent play here or there but mostly he was the worst player on the field at a given time including the opposing team.

    Zona cut Willie Gay

    Arizona cut Willie Gay. Wonder if he would be interested in returning for cheap.

    Another great personnel decison by Whisenhunt. Guy can't judge talent to save his life. No suprise he is out the door
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I would love to have Gay back on the roster. I think he got a really bad rap from some of the fans. Aside from 2009 he has been a solid DB and even in 2009 he played no worse than Ike. In fact if we sign Lewis and Gay we could easily drop Ike.

    Isn't Hampton a FA? You don't have to cut a FA, you just don't re-sign them.
