The Steelers addressed their issue of safety depth by bringing back a former draft pick.
A day after getting released by Washington, the Steelers acted quickly by re-signing safety Sean Davis. His release from Washington was somewhat of a surprise considering they paid him a $2 million signing bonus in the off-season.
The former 2016 second round pick started 41 games at strong safety during his four seasons with the Steelers. Injuries were a problem for Davis, particularly last season after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury during Week One.
The Steelers replaced Davis by signing free agent Curtis Riley. To make room for Davis, the Steelers will reportedly release Riley, who they hope to add to the practice squad. They will need to make a pair of roster moves to make room for Davis and quarterback Josh Dobbs, both of whom they added on Sunday.
