NFL CAREER – Gay has been a solid addition since his arrival in 2008, giving the club a savvy and nimble veteran in the secondary who excels as both a starter and as an extra defensive back.  He’s one of the club’s most versatile defenders, with the ability to start at left and right cornerback, open in nickel packages and also having started at free safety in his career. In 2010, he appeared in only four games before concussions ended his season prematurely. Gay has extensive postseason experience, having appeared in nine contests, including three Super Bowls. He signed a four-year contract with the Saints prior to the 2008 season after playing for New England for four seasons. The Louisiana native and former LSU standout has six career interceptions for 100 yards in returns, a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and two sacks in his career. He has also returned two fumbles for touchdowns. Gay entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie in 2004.
