Quote :
The Steelers added depth at running back when they signed free agent Knile Davis on Monday.

Davis, the Kansas City Chiefs third-round draft pick in 2013, has played in 57 games in his four season, including two with the Green Bay Packers in 2016.

He has 250 carries for 805 yards, a 3.2-yard average, and 11 touchdowns in his four seasons. He also has 34 receptions for 271 yards and a one touchdown.

Wonder what this means for Williams?

Don't believe Williams will be back.

Good signing Imo. 25 years old, ran a 4.37 forty at the 2013 combine, experienced kick returner.

Plug in Wayne Gallman, James Connor, Marlon Mack, or Samaje Perine as the #2.

I like it. I remember him from Senior Bowl a few years ago and great speed for the size. A downhill runner and guy that can take a kickoff the distance. Not a shifty RB but rather a one cut guy that will hit a hole and hit it fast.

I remember during that draft really wanting either bell or davis.....

felt like injuries hurt some of his potential...haven't really watched his time with KC all that much....

I don't know much about him but listening to you guys it sounds like he'll be a good fit. I agree it looks like DW won't be back.

I like it. The only reason he was cut by the Chiefs is Tyreek Hill. He's one of the better kick returners so that's already a big upgrade for us.

Yeah I watched a video just now where in 2013 he ran a KO back for a TD against us. Put him back there instead of Toussant.

I like this signing. Solid KR, and perhaps some 3rd down work as well.

If anything, he should upgrade our KO return unit from day 1
