Saints sign Gay!

GAY GOES SOUTH

After two frenetic days of free agency, Sunday was shaping up to be a lot slower.

So much for that.

The Patriots have lost cornerback Randall Gay to New Orleans, according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network.

Gay has agreed to terms on a four-year, $17.8 million deal, which includes a $3.75 million signing bonus and $6.9 million in guaranteed money.

It's not a jaw-dropping deal, but it further damages the defending AFC champions. And Gay figures to be an improvement over Jason David, who performed like a piece of French (Quarter) Toast for the New Orleans Saints in 2007.

So does anyone have opinions on Gay?

I know most think he is only a nickel guy, but I like it myself. I think it was still a little bit pricey.. but he filled out nicely as a starter for NE in my opinion..

I think he is a role player...best case scenario, he is a nickle or hopefully dime guy...worst case scenario, we need him to start for us.

draftdaddy.com ranks all the FAs and they have Gay as #7 for the cb. I'm happy with that. This is a good signing to address a real need on this team. Some people will be upset about another mid-teir player. Oh well.

I've been quiet for the most part about Randall Gay. He was a solid player in Belichek's system in New England. I think he is a bit underrated, but that remains to be seen. I honestly think Gay will be penciled in as a starter next season. I look forward to seeing what he can do for this secondary.

Re: Saints sign Gay!

I figured it would be for Jason David type money. I'm glad we didn't go overboard and overpay for him out of desparation.

As for my opinion on him, I think he's a pefect nickel back though he'll be our number 2 corner... but I'll take him over David any day. Jason David is better suited for a backup role where I think he'll be a contributor guarding teams 3rd and 4th receivers.

Look at it this way at least David won't be the starter!
