Former Arkansas running back Knile Davis has signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced on Monday afternoon.

Davis has played with the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers and New York Jets during his career. He’s rushed for 805 yards and 11 touchdowns, while adding nearly 2,000 yards and two touchdowns on kickoff returns. He spent the first three-plus years of his career with the Chiefs before being traded to the Packers last year. He ironically wound back up with the Chiefs after being dropped by Green Bay.

Davis rushed for 1,822 yards and 19 touchdowns during his three-year career with the Hogs, and he was drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
