Steelers All 91: FS Sean Davis



All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

21 • Sean Davis, fourth-year safety

Last year: Took over after Mike Mitchell was released and started at free safety in 15 games in his first season at the position. He had worked at strong safety and as a pub-package underneath defender in his first two seasons.

Stats: Had a team-high 80 tackles, 59 of which were solo tackles. Seven passes defended was third on the team. Also had an interception and a quarterback hit.

Accolades, Highlights:

Had nine tackles at Baltimore on November 4. Had five tackles and this interception against New Orleans on December 23.

Camp outlook: Davis was injured on the first day of full-contact practice on Sunday. Assuming he returns quickly, his job should be secure, as most of the Steelers’ experienced backup safeties are better fits for the strong safety spot. AAF alum Kameron Kelly might be the exception.

Projected role: Almost definitely the starting free safety and should be in line for a lot of reps with mostly inexperienced backups.

Cam Heyward Named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 1



Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward has been named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 1.

Heyward was honored for installing his first Little Free Library, a book-sharing box placed in underserved communities around the Pittsburgh area.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that “inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.”

The installation of the book-sharing boxes marks the launch of the Rufus and Judy Jordan Literacy Project, a new initiative of the Cameron Heyward Foundation that will work to promote children’s literacy and honor his late grandparents, both of whom were lifelong educators in Pittsburgh.

Drafted in first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Heyward has spend his entire career in Pittsburgh. He is a three-time Pro Bowler, and has twice received First-Team All-Pro honors.

Heyward and the Steelers agreed to a four-year, $71.4 million contract extension on Sept. 6 that will allow him to retire in Pittsburgh and make him the highest-paid defense player over the age of 30 in NFL history.
