Yep Gay is a average nickel CB. But the Steelers need an upgrade if Gay is your back up to the starters. Smart player it seems to me with average talent. Yes Bigger WR's seems to get the whole Steelers secondary more so then the fast shifty guys. If possible I see a need for 2 CB's drafted. A guy you see as a good #1 or 2 (if Allen is still thought of as a #1) and a guy who could be a good #3 project.
I hated the re-signing of Gay this offseason, but I was wrong. He played as well as could be expected for the time he started at CB while Tez was hurt.
