Steelers sign running back Knile Davis

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers have signed a kickoff return specialist and a veteran cornerback in free agency.

Knile Davis was signed to a one-year contract, according to a statement from the team.

The Packers cut Davis two weeks later and he was picked up by the New York Jets, but cut the next day. He ironically wound back up with the Chiefs after being dropped by Green Bay.

Davis rushed for 805 yards (3.2 avg.) during his time with the Chiefs and caught 34 passes for 271 yards (8.0).

Davis would provide a versatile threat in the backfield and have a feather in his cap most running backs don't have, and that is the ability to also double as a kick returner.

Injuries have not helped, but Sensabaugh has struggled to hold down a regular starting position with numerous teams he has played on. He returned two for touchdowns in his Chiefs career, including a 108-yard return during his rookie season.

The Steelers also announced the signing of Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year contract. He spent the first three-plus years of his career with the Chiefs before being traded to the Packers last year.

In 72 career regular-season games with 29 starts, Sensabuagh has totaled 179 tackles, 1.0 sack, two interceptions and 22 passes defended. He was a fourth-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans from Clemson in 2012.
