It didn't take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to move on free agent running back and kick returner Knile Davis. 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 landed with the Giants and served as a role player in NY for the final 10 weeks of the season. He ironically wound back up with the Chiefs after being dropped by Green Bay. His signature moment in the league came in the AFC Wild Card game in the 2015 playoffs when he took the opening kickoff 106 yards for a touchdown against the Houston Texans.

The Steelers have a featured back in place with Le'Veon Bell, but the depth chart behind him is not quite set, given that the Steelers have yet to re-sign DeAngelo Williams.

The Steelers also signed sixth-year cornerback Coty Sensabaugh to a two-year contract.

The Titans selected Sensabaugh with the #115 overall pick in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after playing at Clemson.

Sensabaugh signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Los Angeles Rams prior to the 2016 season, but was cut October 8 and signed by the New York Giants, with whom he finished the season.

Sensabaugh spent four seasons with the Titans and made 27 starts with two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown on Jameis Winston's first career pass.
