NFL Free Agents 2012: Arizona Cardinals Still In Play For William Gay

The other day, the Arizona Cardinals brought in a pair of defensive backs for a visit, likely to replace the departed Richard Marshall. They brought in Jarrett Bush, formerly of the Green Bay Packers, and William Gay, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since then, Bush re-signed with Green Bay, but Gay has not yet made a decision.

Apparently the Cardinals are still in the running, as he tweeted these statements on Wednesday.

He is down to four teams. One likely selling point for Arizona is the fact that he would get to work again with Ray Horton, who was his defensive backs coach previous to 2011.

He definite fits the profile of the type of DB that Horton likes. He is physical and not afraid to tackle.

What do you, the readers, hope? The Cards have Patrick Peterson, Greg Toler (returning from injury), Michael Adams and Crezdon Butler (returning from injury) as the most notable players to compete for the roster spots in 2012. Do you want Gay in the mix too?
