RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Randall Gay.
Gay will likely serve as a defensive back in the Saints' nickel or dime package, however, the addition of Patrick Robinson in the first round of the NFL Draft casts some doubt on the security of his roster position.
Gay will likely be the Saints' nickel or dime corner. With the addition of Jabari Greer, rookie Malcom Jenkins, and a healthy Tracy Porter, Gay will see his playing time reduced. He may get a few interceptions in 2009, but will not be as productive as he once was a few years back.
Gay, who was acquired by the Saints via free agency this offseason, is slated to start at cornerback alongside Mike McKenzie this season. Gay will face some competition for the starting job from Jason David and Tracy Porter during training camp, but he is the hands-down favorite to be the starter come Week 1.
Gay has endured nagging injuries over the past two seasons, but it's clear that he has the trust of the coaching staff and his re-signing adds needed depth (and Asante Samuel holdout insurance) to the secondary.
Gay, who can play both corner and safety, started on the Patriots Super Bowl team two years ago, but with Ellis Hobbs now in the mix, he projects as the nickel corner this year.
Gay, an undrafted rookie last season, proved that there's not anything wrong with that and held his own against NFL competition when injuries hit the Patriots' secondary. After starting 12 games in 2004, he figures to play a prominent role in subpackages this year.
