The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a busy Monday as not only did they sign free agent running back Knile Davis to a one-year contract, they also signed cornerback Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year contract.
Sensabaugh, who played his college football at Clemson and was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He signed a three-year contract with the St. Louis Rams last March and would up getting cut in October. He ultimately signed with the New York Giants and appeared in 10 games for them on his way to registering 15 total tackles for them.
Sensabaugh will probably be asked to compete for a slot cornerback position in Pittsburgh in addition to being asked to play on special teams. His best season so far came as a member of the Titans in 2015 when he recorded 60 total tackles, two interceptions and 8 defensed passes.
The Steelers entered the offseason with question marks related to the slot position and that’s mostly related to veteran William Gay getting up there in age and former second round draft pick Senquez Golson having yet to play a down in the NFL because of injuries.
The financials of Sensabaugh’s two-year contract are not yet known and I will pass them along to you as soon as they become available.
