    Running full throttle? Hyperbole much? lol

    Depth signings it's what we should expect at this point. Davis signing is as KR more than RB I'd bet money on that. An area we need to improve in. Good signing.

    This draft is pretty deep at RB. Davis fills a need as a backup RB and special teamer. I still expect them to take a RB, possibly high.

    OLB and CB have good depth in this draft but pass rushers and CBs tend to go early. By pick 30, it is very possible the steelers will be in a dead area for OLB and CB where all the 1st round talents are gone.

    if that happens, i can easily see them taking WR, TE, or even RB if it's the BPA. What if Njoku from Miami, McCaffrey or Dalvin Cook, and Mike Williams or John Ross are sitting there and you take the 5th OLb or 6th CB?

    Davis can't even return well against the Steelers crappy special teams.... How's he gonna do well against other teams?...

    They were never going to take a RB high. Maybe rounds 4 on and I still expect that, especially with Bell's future still in question. A WR and TE would still be higher priorities on O.

    At this point (and I don't see anything changing), they still need to draft OLB and CB in rounds 1 and 2.

    Steelers signed RB Knile Davis to a one-year contract.

    Davis has become a full-blown journeyman, spending parts of 2016 with the Chiefs, Jets, Packers and then Chiefs again. Going on 26, Davis owns a career 3.22 YPC

    He'll be far from assured of a spot on the 53-man roster.

    My assumption is Davis is on the roster to push a draft pick that is yet on the roster and to be insurance just in case said draft pick is a bust.

    Coty Sensabagh I feel has a decent shot at making the team. Even if Golson is healthy and we draft a CB high I feel he has a better than 50/50 shot at making it. Didn't say that was a good thing either.

    Good assumption and also he was ONLY signed to a one year deal. I bet it was for minimal wages and very "CUT" frie3ndly to our cap space.

    Shit we suck at free agency. Anything over 1 year vet minimum for either of these 2 was over payment. I'm ok with a vet min deal for Davis if he is our 3rd RB/KR competing with Touissant, probably an upgrade in the return game and about the same as Touissant in the backfield. Still need a #2 behind Bell, wth?

    Really Coty Sensabraugh? Can't get talent like that on just a 1 year deal...shit

    Yup, this is what I came to say. Throw this money at Charles and I'm happy. He can return kicks, too.

    The Steelers signed him because KC never used him properly....

    We just put the Patriots on notice..

    Thing is with Davis I think he is really one dimensional, destined for return duties and that is it.

    Can we afford this type of luxury activated on game days ?

    One could argue with Williams departure the Steelers still need two running backs.

    This guy used to be a badass KR and a pretty good backup RB to JC. Worth a shot.
    The above post may contain a large amount of sarcasm.

    so far, it's our big FA splash, other than signing our own. We are off and running. . .
