Cornerback William Gay won't hit the free agent market.

Watch:

The veteran corner is re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the team.

The 31-year-old corner started all 16 games for the Steelers last season, compiling seven passes defends, two interceptions and 46 tackles. Pro Football Focus rated Gay their No. 34 corner out of 118 in 2015.
