Steelers Host CB Coty Sensabaugh, RB Knile Davis For Free Agent Visits

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.

According to Bob Labriola of, cornerback Coty Sensabaugh and running back Knile Davis are both visiting with the Steelers on Monday.

Sensabaugh, who was drafted originally by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Clemson, played most of last season with the New York Giants. He registered just 25 total tackles in the 13 games that he dressed for with Giants and St. Louis Rams and one of those came on special teams.

Sensabaugh probably best fits with the Steelers as a backup slot defender and special teams player. He signed a three-year, $14.5 million contract with the Rams last March and was cut in October.

As for Davis, who was drafted originally by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Arkansas, he had all of 18 rushes for 28 yards last season. 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. He ultimately re-signed with the Chiefs last November.

Davis has some value as a kick returner as he’s returned 73 for 1,960 yards and two touchdowns during his career.

    Well, we’ve officially reached the bottom of the barrel

    Davis being waved so fast by a couple teams worries me but then Reid picked him back up.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hey look! More RB’s who return kicks! Sweet!

    But seriously, Knile Davis is pretty down on my list of RB’s who can backup Bell to the point where we won’t have to go to bed at night, partially holding our breath. The guy has never been a starter in his 4 years in the league. Had some fumbling issues in his limited reps. And was pushed down depths charts pretty regularly. If we would be considering Davis as a 3rd RB, who we think can return kicks, gulp, well whatever, better wisdom on that than I, I’ll claim. But count me as NOT impressed or enthused.

    Sensabaugh is exactly what was mentioned in the article, depth and Special Teams and nothing more. I’m not going to pretend that it is NOT depressing at this point to see us bring in guys that are so lacking in talent.. Especially at the CB position. It’s like missing out on all of the thoroughbreds, and going shopping in the Nag department.

    “Blue light special on all Mules and Nags!”
    – As we go running doltishly towards the light…

    One has to wonder if the Patriots see articles like this – and just laugh and laugh.

  • Spencer Krick

    We’ll sign Davis and he won’t return a kick until week 16 when Landry Jones is starting.

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m crying mostly on the inside… mostly.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    I’m confused, do they actually want to win another Super Bowl?

  • Spencer Krick

    I think all the eggs are going into the basket that is the draft.

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    They had signed toddman and he didnt even return kicks

  • Darth Blount 47

    Not true… He returned 1 kick. For 22 yards.

    And that was so spectacular, that we shut him down, figuring best not overuse such unbelievable talent.

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    I meant for the whole season when we signed him that man should have been our returner since day 1

  • Darth Blount 47

    I know, Daniel. I know.
    I’ll do better with my facetious comment next time. I failed you. And I’m sorry.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    One homerun draft and they feel they are the draft whisperers lol.We can’t afford to be arrogant at this time. I just hope it pays off though.

    I think Aluala would be a great 4th DLineman addition. As for Davis & Sensabaugh, I don’t care if we sign them as depth but I sure hope neither changes our draft plans. FWIW, I’m a huge Clemson fan in NCAAF, and Sensabaugh was a late-bloomer in college with some athletic upside (but this is more a lottery ticket than an expectation). As for K. Davis, if they sign him, I hope they have him slim down some ala Bell – he is sorta big but doesn’t really play like a big guy IMO. Again, maybe it could turn into something but its not something that should be expected.

  • Mike Lloyd

    Oh God…Please not Knile Davis.
    Miles Davis prolly was better at football than Knile. C’mon, the market for RBs is absolutely broken down, and we are looking at Knile Davis? Are you kidding me…

  • Andrew

    I still think if they can get Charles for cheap with a good power back in the draft, we will have a decent group of RB’s. Power, a little speed and finesse, and Bell is Bell.

  • Rob

    Just signed davis to a 1 year deal

  • kongmw

    Looks like Knile Davis was just signed.

  • Justin B

    Knile Davis 28 rushing and 5 receiving yards last season. Please tell me he is a beast on Special Teams.

  • Igmond

    What’s the point in this? I would rather take a chance on an UDFA with some potential. These guys have shown what they can (or can’t) do. Don’t the Steelers know these articles make them look bad? At least meet with these types of players in a dark alley.

  • Paddy

    “Bette Davis Eyes” there I took your minds off Knile

  • Ryan Alderman


  • WreckIess

    Special teams. Depth. Filling up the roster with camp bodies because they’re only at like 80 now with Davis signed. Not every guy that’s signed has to be an all star.

  • Igmond

    Not just looking, signed! I agree, if these guys are so great then why did the other 31 teams pass on signing them? I know we need depth but yikes.

  • SouthernSteel

    I hope our drafted rookies can beat these jokers out!

  • AndyR34

    Wrong font! 😂

  • Boots

    One of the better KR in the league

  • Timothy Rea

    Not sure what happened to my reply.. but funny enough.. or sad as the case may be Toddman went on to the colts where he returned a kick off for a TD. So to summarize.. none of that once he joined our team then back to another team and he was right back where he started. Just doesn’t make sense.

  • John Noh

    Sensabaugh deal just announced, Two years.

  • Shane Mitchell

    Coty Sensabaugh fits right in as a poor tackler in the secondary.

    This thread should have been titled, “The Free Agency Flee Market Corner”.

  • Randy

    I feel Rooney is happy as long as they appear in a championship game other than SB. Why cos he has made his money and the pockets are filled.

  • Randy

    Nope he will also keep the bench from getting a frostbite

    I was without work for 6 months when my former Fellow worker ultimately advised me to begin freelancing at home… It was only just after I received $5000 in my first thirty days when I really believed I could do this for a living! Currently I am delightful than ever… I work-at-home and also I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see a number of depressed people around me, working the same old boring job that is sucking the everyday life from all of them day-after-day… Whenever I see someone similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is where I started off >>>> http://working92­.­weebly­.­com
