Davis, who will play safety for the Steelers after playing his college football at Maryland, is now the fourth Pittsburgh draft pick to sign. His new contract should total out at around $4.087 million and include a $1.172 million signing bonus.
The Steelers had previously signed Demarcus Ayers, Travis Feeney and Tyler Matakevich.
Davis, who will wear No. 28 for the Steelers, started at safety for Maryland for three years before moving to cornerback as a senior. He recorded over 300 tackles at Maryland in addition to 5 interceptions and 14 pass breakups. Davis is expected to compete with veteran Robert Golden for the team’s starting strong safety spot, opposite free safety Mike Mitchell.
The Steelers have yet to sign three of their top four selections but should have cornerback Artie Burns, defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and tackle Jerald Hawkins all under contract very soon thanks to their not being many negotiations needed outside of offsets due to the rookie wage scale that was implemented in the collective bargaining agreement.
