The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed defensive tackle Khalil Davis to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Davis, the brother of fellow Steelers defensive tackle Carlos Davis, joined the team’s practice squad on Nov. 2 and he spent the remainder of the 2021 season there. He did not appear in any games with the team.
A 6-foot-1, 308-pound defensive lineman, Khalil Davis also went to Nebraska like his brother. He was drafted by the Tampa Bay buccaneers in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Davis has played in three career games, two with Tampa Bay and one with Indianapolis before joining the Steelers this season. He has two tackles.
The Steelers also signed defensive tackle Daniel Archibong, wide receiver Rico Bussey, guard Nate Gilliam, guard Malcolm Pridgeon, outside linebacker Delontae Scott, kicker Sam Sloman, defensive back Linden Stephens, tight end Jace Sternberger, safety Donovan Stiner, long snapper Rex Sunahara and wide receiver Tyler Vaughns to reserve/future contracts on Tuesday.
The 12 signings, plus nine players from the injured reserve and COVID-19 reserve lists and the 53-man roster puts the Steelers’ offseason roster at 74 of the maximum 90.
