"Giants replace DRC with veteran Steelers cornerback"
https://nypost.com/2018/04/05/giants-sign-veteran-steelers-cornerback/

The Giants cut ties with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this spring, leaving a void as far as experience, depth and ability at the nickel-back role. They made a move Thursday to fill that hole, signing William Gay, an 11-year veteran who, at 33, is actually two years older than Rodgers-Cromartie.

With Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple returning and not much behind them, finding capable bodies is essential for the Giants’ defensive makeup. Ross Cockrell, who started nine games and played in all 16 games last season, left in free agency, signing with the Panthers.


Gay also comes, no doubt, with a high approval rating from Deshea Townsend, the Giants’ new assistant defensive backs coach. Townsend was a teammate of Gay’s in Pittsburgh, and Gay later played for Townsend with the Cardinals.

Good luck to him but me thinks he should have retired.

Dilly, Dilly.   I couldn't agree more.   However, I wish him luck.  Once you hang up those cleats, there's typically no coming back
