It appears that cornerback William Gay will be rejoining the Steelers after spending one season with the Arizona Cardinals.
Gay has changed his Twitter account information to label himself a "cornerback of the Pittsburgh Steelers." Asked on Twitter by former teammate Ryan Mundy if he is coming back, Gay answered "Yea." He also wrote on Twitter that "I'm glad I didn't sell my condo in Pittsburgh."
He will be at the Steelers facility on the South Side today.
Jerrold Colton, Gay's agent, said that there is interest in the Steelers but would not say whether Gay has come to contract terms with the team yet.
With the Steelers possibly set to lose starting cornerback Keenan Lewis as an unrestricted free agent, Gay would give them a veteran presence as a former starter and nickel cornerback. Gay started at left cornerback in 2009, lost his job to Bryant McFadden in 2010 and regained it in 2011.
He signed with Arizona as an unrestricted free agent last year, and Lewis took his starting job on the left side.
Gay, 28, was a fifth-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2007.
