Former New York Giants safety Nat Berhe has found a new home, signing on Wednesday with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Berhe announced the deal on his Twitter page.

A 2014 fifth-round pick, Berhe was a solid special teams player for the Giants but never really established himself on defense.

He missed an opportunity in 2015. Penciled in as a starter, Berhe missed the entire season with a calf injury.

In 2016, Berhe found himself behind third-round pick Darian Thompson. When Thompson was injured, Berhe got an opportunity but was sidelined by a concussion after starting only two games.

In 2017, Berhe was behind both Thompson and Andrew Adams on the depth chart.

William Gay to join Giants?

Multiple reports have indicated that the Giants could be signing former Steelers cornerback William Gay as early as Thursday. The 33-year-old Gay has spent 10 of his 11 seasons with the Steelers, interrupted only by playing for the Arizona Cardinals in 2012. Gay started only one game for Pittsburgh last season and played only 27.1 percent of the Steelers’ defensive snaps.

Gay would join Teddy Williams, B.W. Webb and Curtis Riley as players signed to compete for cornerback spots.
