Update: Former Steelers OL Sam Davis Found Dead

Published

Former Steelers offensive lineman Sam Davis has been found dead after being reported missing from his personal care home on Tuesday.

Davis, 75, suffered from dementia and was legally blind. He went missing from the New Life Personal Care Home on Versailles Avenue in McKeesport around 6 a.m. McKeesport police believed that Davis was last seen at Walmart in North Versailles Township, but he was later found at the facility.

Joining the team as undrafted free agent out of Allen University in 1967, Davis was a guard for the Steelers for 14 seasons, was a four-time Super Bowl champion and a member of their 50th anniversary all-time team. A fall in 1991 precipitated the onset of dementia and Parkinson’s syndrome.
