New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be seeing some former players in different uniforms next season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers added Nat Berhe, formerly of the New York Giants, to replace Robert Golden on special teams and in the secondary. While this happened Wednesday evening, earlier in the day the aforementioned Golden found a new home with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Golden wasn’t the only former player on the move. While not official, word is cornerback William Gay will be signing a deal with the New York Giants if/when he passes his player physical.

This from former Steelers cornerback, and teammate of William Gay, Bryant McFadden:

Losing players is part of the business, and watching some fan favorites go to a new home is difficult at times. Golden has only known the Steelers throughout his NFL career, and Gay, outside of his lone season with the Arizona Cardinals, was also a black-and-gold lifer.

We here at BTSC wish both Golden and Gay luck in their new venues, unless they are playing the Steelers, of course. It is worth noting the other player the Steelers released at the same time, Mike Mitchell, has not found a new home, nor has he been rumored to be visiting anywhere, yet.
