So overnight — I was sleeping; I do that in the middle of the night — free agent cornerback William Gay tweeted out a message about watching college track and added, “O yeah by the way I’m
#Birdgang now west coast”
Not sure what that means to you, but I’d interpret that as Gay choosing the Cards to play for in 2012.
Now, there is nothing official. Haven’t seen anything reported anywhere else, and there certainly has not been any official announcement from the team yet. If this is true, I wouldn’t expect to hear anything official until Monday. Maybe it hasn’t happened. If they do get Gay, there is a veteran replacement for the just departed Richard Marshall. The Cards need that depth (which is why they are/were chasing Gay in the first place.)
UPDATE: It is official. Confirmed that Gay has agreed to a two-year contract to reunite with defensive coordinator Ray Horton.
