Steelers sign running back Knile Davis

Steelers hosting free agent RB Knile Davis and CB Coty Sensabaugh

While the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to host free agent defensive lineman Tyson Alualu in the coming days, the team reportedly has two other free agents in for visits on Monday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have added more depth to their backfield by signing running back Knile Davis.

The Chiefs had drafted the 5-11 1/4, 227-pound Davis in the third round of the 2013 draft out of Arkansas, after Davis had run a 4.37 40 at the NFL Combine. A capable pair of hands in the passing game, the former Chiefs could be a good signing at the right price. He also has returned 73 kickoffs for 1,960 yards with two kickoff return touchdowns.

If Davis makes the Steelers roster, it will likely be as a return specialist as the team continues its search for Le'Veon Bell's primary backup.

He spent the first four years of his National Football League career (2012-15) in Tennessee, before joining the Los Angeles Rams (three games) and New York Giants (10 games) in 2016.

In 2015, Sensabaugh had a career-high 60 tackles with two interceptions including picking off Jamesis Winston's first career pass and returning it for a touchdown. He was a fourth-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans from Clemson in 2012.

Blake spent last season with the Titans and saw action in all 16 games.
