According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, cornerback Davon House is on a plane to Pittsburgh to visit with Steelers on Monday.

House, who was originally drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of New Mexico State, most recently played for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He started all 16 games for the Jaguars in 2015 and led the team in pass break-ups with 23 and four interceptions.
The Jaguars released House one week ago as he was due to make $6 million after being benched last year. He will turn 28 in July and is listed at 6-0, 200-pounds.
Here is what PFF wrote about House after the 2015 season:
Davon House surrendered a passer rating below 80.0 in his first season in Jacksonville, while free-agent signing Prince Amukamara was tied for 17th in the league, surrendering only 1.04 yards per coverage snap.
The Steelers are expected to sign a free agent cornerback during the next several weeks and especially ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft. The team placed an original round tender on restricted free agent cornerback Ross Cockrell a few weeks ago as well.
Currently, the only cornerbacks under contract with the Steelers who ended the 2016 season on the roster are Artie Burns, William Gay, Senquez Golson and Al-Hajj Shabazz. Golson, however, has yet to play an NFL snap since being drafted in 2015 due to injuries.
