ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter has reported via agent Drew Rosenhaus that former Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington safety Sean Davis is returning to the Steelers.
Davis was the Steelers second-round pick back in 2016. He started 41 games at strong safety for the Steelers over four seasons but an injury in 2019 cost him the final 15 games and he signed with the Washington Football Team as a free agent.
If he’s healthy, you have to assume Davis will immediately be in the mix to be the third safety on the depth chart and honestly could supplant Terrell Edmunds in the starting lineup next to Minkah Fitzpatrick.
The Steelers released sixth-round pick, Antoine Brooks, in final cuts on Saturday. The addition of Davis will shuffle things around and could keep Brooks off the 53-man roster for the remainder of the season.
