Atlanta Falcons have signed former Pittsburgh Steelers, defensive lineman, Carlos Davis, one of the team’s few remaining unrestricted free agents.
Davis, 26, was the Steelers seventh-round draft pick out of Nebraska in 2020 and spent the last three seasons with the team.
And three years in Pittsburgh, Davis played in 12 games, amassing 12 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one sack and one quarterback hit.
In 2022, Davis was released after training camp and spent most of the season on the Steelers practice squad. He was called up for one game, earning his first career sacks of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Davis was one of the few players from the team’s 2022 practice squad that was not signed to a reserve/future contract for the 2023 season.
Since then, the Steelers have acquired veterans Armon Watts, Breiden Fehoko and Manny Jones and drafted nose tackle Keeanu Benton in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
With Davis signing elsewhere, the Steelers are now down to three players from their 2020 NFL draft class on their roster: outside linebacker Alex, Highsmith, running back Anthony McFarland, and guard Kevin Dotson.
A total of 14 players from the club’s 2022 active roster remain unsigned this off-season. Steelers free agent tracker.
