The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to release cornerback William Gay on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN on Monday.
Gay, 33, also confirmed on social media with an Instagram post that said: "One hell of a ride in the City of Champions. Loved every moment."
Cutting Gay will save $1.75 million in cap space before the league year begins on Wednesday and end his second stint with the Steelers.
Gay appeared in every game last season but did not start a game for the first time since his rookie season in 2007. He recorded 19 tackles, one interception and forced two fumbles.
Gay began his career with the Steelers as a fifth-round pick in 2007 and spent his first five seasons in Pittsburgh. He spent the 2012 season with the Arizona Cardinals before returning to Pittsburgh on a three-year, $4.5 million contract following his release by Arizona.
