According to a Monday afternoon report from Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be signing unrestricted free agent cornerback Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year deal.

2016 saw the end of his time in Kansas City after Davis was traded to the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers cut Davis two weeks later and he was picked up by the New York Jets, but cut the next day. The former Arkansas star had the best season of his career in 2014, when he served as a capable understudy to Jamaal Charles in Kansas City, piling up 463 yards and six touchdowns on 134 carries. He ultimately re-signed with the Chiefs last November.

At only 25-years old, Davis could provide a more youthful backup to Le'Veon Bell and a threat in the return game the Steelers have not have since Stefan Logan.

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. The former Dobyns-Bennett product originally entered the National Football League as a fourth-round draft selection in 2012 by the Tennessee Titans.

In 72 career regular-season games with 29 starts, Sensabuagh has totaled 179 tackles, 1.0 sack, two interceptions and 22 passes defensed.
