William Gay’s Rollercoaster Career In Pittsburgh Finally Comes To A Stop

While there was a one-year detour, William Gay, a fifth-round draft pick in the same class that included a punter in the fourth round, proved to be the last man standing for Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s inaugural draft class back in 2007.

Considering that he carved out an 11-year career for himself and at the age of 33 still hopes to play one more season, that was not a bad selection by any means. Gay certainly had his ebbs and flows over the course of the past decade-plus of his professional life—and the fans let him know all about it—but he has had a big impact on the team over that span of time.
