Steelers Tried to Claim DT Khalil Davis

The Pittsburgh Steelers almost added a defensive tackle on Monday, but didn’t have a high enough waiver priority.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released DT Khalil Davis, and the Steelers put in a claim for him, but he was awarded to Indianapolis because they had a higher priority than the Steelers.

Davis was a sixth round pick of the Buccaneers in 2020 and appeared in two games for the Super Bowl Champs recording 2 tackles, and 2 quarterback hits.

This news is especially interesting because his twin brother Carlos was a draft choice of the Steelers in 2020. He’s currently dealing with a knee injury that has kept him out since week 1.

Had the Steelers been able to claim him they would’ve likely released Henry Mondeaux and placed him back on the practice squad if he cleared waivers himself.

Khalil and Carlos would’ve been the third set of brothers on the Steelers roster with TJ and Derek Watt, and Terrell and Trey Edmunds.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
