The Pittsburgh Steelers have gone from sellers, to buyers, and all it took was the official day of spring to make it happen.

After only signing one outside the organization free agent, wide receiver Justin Hunter, the team signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Knile Davis to a new one-year deal, and followed that up by signing former New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans cornerback Coty Sensabaugh to a new two-year contract.

While this move might not have the flashy named attached to it, as everyone saw in the early stages of NFL Free Agency, but Sensabaugh is a good addition to a team desperately in need of depth at the cornerback position.

Sensabaugh is capable of playing both inside and outside cornerback coverage, and will help boost a secondary which is still very green when it comes to experience. Sensabaugh joins Artie Burns, Ross Cockrell and William Gay as the team’s primary cornerbacks on the team, and players like Senquez Golson and Al-hajj Shabazz could also factor into the equation when final cuts take place this season.

The Steelers might have taken a while to get started, but they are slowly making moves which provide both experience and depth at key positions. There is a strong chance they aren’t done making moves, so stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on the free agents who are visiting, and potentially signing, with the black and gold.
