Former Clemson DB signs with Steelers

Steelers sign former Chiefs RB Knile Davis

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Kingsport native Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year contract, the team announced today.

Davis played three-plus seasons with the Chiefs, who selected him in the third round of the 2013 National Football League draft. 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.

Davis, born in Missouri City, Texas, was a football and track star in high school and went to Arkansas as a highly touted recruit. He also has 34 receptions for 271 yards and a one touchdown. Davis has two kickoff return touchdowns on his resume since being drafted in 2013. He also has returned 73 kickoffs for 1,960 yards with two kickoff return touchdowns.

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

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.

Davis, 25, will try to resurrect his career in Pittsburgh after struggling to make a consistent impact with the Chiefs and Packers over the past two years.

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