first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke The signing of Gay comes at a good time for the Cardinals,as they’ve missed out on other defensive back targetswhile having lost Richard Marshall to the Dolphins earlyin free agency.Gay, 27, has tallied three interceptions over the courseof his five-year career, but picked off two passes in2011, and is a willing tackler, having picked up 247 (205solo) in his career.Gay also fits the mold of what the Cardinals tend to lookfor in a free agent, as he is a player who has not yetreached his full potential as well as a former Steeler.It’s worth noting that Gay was with the Steelers at thesame time current Cardinals defensive coordinator RayHorton was the defensive backs coach, so if anyone knowswhat the 5-foot-10, 190 pound player is like it’s the manwho will be lining him up on defense.
