The Steelers signed unrestricted free agent cornerback William Gay to a deal this afternoon.

Gay was the Steelers fifth-round pick in 2007 out of Louisville.

The Steelers now have their top three cornerbacks back from last year's Super Bowl team. Gay will likely assume the nickle back position in the Steelers' defense.
