Patriots sign ex-steelers starting security.
On Wednesday, October 13th, the New England Patriots enlisted former Pittsburgh Steelers security guard Sean Davis in their training roster, as part of a training session with the team the day before.
Davis is fondly remembered by Patriots fans for being ridiculed by former New England tight end Rob Gronkowski after Gronk caught a touchdown pass from Tom Brady during a game at Heinz Field in December 2017. It was a result that put the Patriots three points ahead with 56 seconds remaining, but the Pats held onto the 27-24 win after a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jesse James was overruled on the replay because ” the receiver in the end zone did “. not survive the ground. “
It remains to be seen whether Davis, 27, can help the Patriots – or any NFL team other than the Steelers. The six-year veteran has now spent time at five different clubs, but 64 of his 68 career games came with the Steelers, including all 42 of his starts, according to the Pro Football Reference.
The former 2016 second-round pick played in Pittsburgh for four seasons before signing a $ 5 million one-year deal with Washington Football Team in early 2020. However, he was fired from Washington just before the start of the 2020 season, which allowed the Steelers to bring him back for another year as a backup and special teamer.
During the final off-season, Davis found a new NFL home in Indianapolis and signed a one-year deal with the Colts. But for the second time in a row he did not make it into the 53-man roster of his team. However, he landed a spot on the Colts’ training team and was added to the active list for one game before the Colts ended his contract.
He next managed to catch up with Cincinnati and appeared in three games for the Bengals before they too canceled his contract and made him an unlimited free agent on October 5, 2021.
If Davis accumulates more NFL playtime, he has the chance to build on a resume that includes 259 tackles, five interceptions, 21 defended passes, and 2.5 career sacks.

In a separate transaction involving a former Steelers defense attorney, the Tennessee Titans signed insider linebacker Avery Williamson from the Denver training team. The move takes place exactly one week after joining the Broncos.
Williamson joined the Steelers on November 1, 2020 in a deal with the New York Jets that also saw the Jets send Pittsburgh a pick for the seventh round in 2022, while the Steelers parted ways with a five-round pick in 2022.
Williamson was a stopgap solution for Pittsburgh, appearing in eight regular season games and making four starts, according to the Pro Football Reference. During that time, he was responsible for 52 total tackles (37 solos), with one sack, two quarterback hits, and three tackles for loss.
Now Williamson is returning to the team that selected him in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Kentucky No. 151 overall.
