    not a bad move.

    signing Willie Gay provides us with some depth and added competition in training camp. he already knows the system, actually plays okay in the slot and will help us contribute on special teams...

    This move reeks of complacency by the front office imo. Are there no other CBs available besides this guy? If the FO is afraid of losing Lewis there has to be better options. I hope this is a move for the nickel position and not starting corner possibilities. And I would rather have someone else at nickel. I don't believe this move makes the team any better, it is a lateral move.

    I think the move says more about curtis browns development than it does about lewis's chance of staying.

    the lights better come on for him real quick.

    I think Gay is a good slot CB; if AZ was unhappy with him, was he playing the slot or did they put him out wide? Were they juxtaposing his play with Peterson's - who is a freak? As long as this was a move to secure the slot, I am OK with it. At least we know he knows the Steeler/Dicky rocket science/brain surgery scheme. It would take any other player YEARS to figure out.

    By the way, I am reading this is a done deal.

    Exactly. I like the signing. Gay is a solid DB that will provide us some depth in a position whose importance has risen exponentially the last few years. That will give Brown and Van Dyke some more time for the light bulb to come on.

    Here are the numbers:

    Gerry Dulac@gerrydulacWilliam Gay's deal: 3 yrs, $4.5million, $500k signing bonus.
    Could be better, could be worse.

    /\ What I was thinking. Brown didn't do much in the developement department, beside we could still sign Lewis combined with Ike, Cortez,Gay makes it one of the best in the league.
