Chiefs rumors: Knile Davis visits Pittsburgh Steelers

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

It didn't take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to move on free agent running back and kick returner Knile Davis. After being traded to the Green Bay Packers last October, Davis was eventually waived a few weeks later and claimed by the New York Jets before quickly being waived again. As a sophomore he finished second in rushing (1,322 yards) in the SEC behind Cam Newton, but missed his junior season with an injury. Shortly after the former Kansas City Chiefs back came to Pittsburgh for a visit, he was given, and agreed to terms, on a one-year contract.


Davis was utilized in the kickoff return game for the Chiefs, and in the 2015 AFC Wild Card game he returned the opening kickoff 106 yards for a touchdown against the Houston Texans.

Injuries have not helped, but Sensabaugh has struggled to hold down a regular starting position with numerous teams he has played on.


Sensabaugh spent four seasons with the Titans and made 27 starts with two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown on Jameis Winston's first career pass.

Davis' career regular-season numbers include 250 rushes for 805 rushing yards with 11 rushing touchdowns and 34 receptions for 271 receiving yards with a touchdown in 57 games.


The Titans selected Sensabaugh with the #115 overall pick in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after playing at Clemson.
