Steelers Sign Free Agent RB Knile Davis

The Steelers signed veteran running back Knile Davis on Monday

Knile Davis is now a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced on Monday afternoon.

The 6’0, 227-pound Davis spent his first 3.5 seasons with the Chiefs before signing with the Packers in 2016, registering just five carries for five yards during his brief stint in Green Bay. Davis, 25, has 805 career rushing yards and 11 touchdowns after being Kansas City’s third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Before coming to the NFL, Davis rushed for 1,862 yards and 19 touchdowns during his three seasons at Arkansas. His best season took place in 2010, when he rushed for 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 6.5 yards per carry. He missed the Razorbacks’ entire 2011 season after suffering a left ankle injury before the start of the season, but returned to field in 2012 before entering the draft.

With the signing of Davis, that could mean the end of DeAngelo Williams‘ time in Pittsburgh, as Williams is still on the open as free agency begins its third week.
