Davis signed a contract with the Steelers on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Davis was waived by Washington on Saturday after signing a one-year contract with the club in March. The veteran was a two-year starter with the Steelers in 2017 and 2018, respectively, but likely will assume a depth role in 2020. The Steelers have both Terrell Edmunds (undisclosed) and Minkah Fitzpatrick penciled in as starters at safety, so, from a fantasy perspective, don't expect much production from a fantasy perspective from Davis.
Davis was released by Washington on Saturday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The transaction clears the way for Troy Apke to start at safety opposite Landon Collins. Davis signed a one-year contract with Washington all the way back in March with the intent on securing a starting safety spot, but he'll have to find a different path to a team's top unit. A two-year starter with the Steelers back in 2017 and 2018, it'd be a bit surprising if Davis doesn't end up on a roster, even if it's under the guise of depth along the secondary.
Davis (shoulder) agreed Wednesday with Washington on a one-year, $5 million contract, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
A 2016 second-round pick, Davis started 41 games over his first three seasons with the Steelers but spent most of 2019 on injured reserve when he suffered a torn labrum in Week 2. The Steelers traded for Minkah Fitzpatrick shortly thereafter, ensuring that Davis would need to sign elsewhere to find a starting job. It isn't entirely clear he'll be a starter in Washington, but he should at least get a chance to compete for the spot next to Landon Collins. Other options for the role include Montae Nicholson (neck) and Troy Apke (knee).
Davis finished the 2019 season on injured reserve with a torn labrum.
A torn labrum in his right shoulder sent Davis to IR after only one game -- in which he recorded five tackles. Even if he is healthy, the acquisition of Minkah Fitzpatrick relegates Davis -- an unrestricted free agent -- to a backup role for 2020 if he returns to the Steelers.
Davis (shoulder) has no official timetable for his recovery, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Davis landed on injured reserve in mid-September with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, and coach Mike Tomlin indicated there's been no discussion about him returning from IR since he "isn't close enough yet." The 26-year-old likely would fill a depth role in the secondary if he's able to return, with the acquisition of Minkah Fitzpatrick solidifying the safety position.
Davis (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a torn labrum, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
A day after Davis said he expected to play in Week 3 versus the 49ers, the Steelers sent him to IR. His injury will need extensive recovery, but the fourth-year pro is a solid candidate to return in Week 11. To help lessen the effect on defense, the Steelers traded a 2020 first-round pick to the Dolphins in exchange for Minkah Fitzpatrick, who is talented enough to possibly retain the starting job even when Davis returns.
Davis (shoulder) said Monday that he expects to play in Sunday's game against San Francisco, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Davis (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Seahawks.
Davis missed the first game of the season with an ankle injury, and now he's battling another issue. The fourth-year pro made five solo tackles before exiting the matchup, and he'll be replaced by Kameron Kelly at free safety for the time being.
Davis (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Davis' full participation Thursday is a step up from his limited participation Wednesday. The 26-year-old missed Sunday's season opener due to an ankle injury. When healthy and active, Davis is expected to continue shouldering a starting role at free safety for the Steelers.
Davis (ankle) was officially listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice.
Davis missed Sunday's game against the Patriots due to the injury, so the fact that he's back practicing in some fashion is a positive sign for his Week 2 availability. Expect the team to monitor his practice time throughout the week, but if he's unable to play for the second consecutive game, it will likely be Kameron Kelly who starts in his place.
Davis (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.
Heading into his fourth season, Davis will miss the second game of his career. He was expected to start at free safety, but Kameron Kelly will start in his place. Davis will shift his focus to getting healthy for Week 2's game versus the Seahawks.
Davis (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Davis has not practiced all week and looks like a long shot to suit up Week 1. He's nursing an ankle injury suffered during a preseason contest versus the Texans. Kameron Kelly and Jordan Dangerfield stand to see increased snaps as long as Davis remains sidelined.
Davis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Davis suffered an ankle injury during a preseason contest versus Houston and hasn't yet fully recovered. The fourth-year safety projects to play a key role in Pittsburgh's secondary when healthy, but it remains to be seen whether Davis will be good to go Week 1.
Davis suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's preseason game against the Titans, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Davis exited the game with what was originally believed to be a thigh injury, but further inspection found it to be an ankle injury and he was held out of practice to start the week. Davis' ankle is still being looked at by team doctors, and the free safety is currently without a timetable for a recovery.
Davis exited Sunday's preseason matchup against the Titans with a thigh injury, but he was able to head to the locker room under his own power, Brian Batko of Post-Gazette Sports reports.
Davis' injury didn't look incredibly serious, but it should be enough to knock him out for the rest of the night.
Davis (hand) recorded two solo tackles in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.
Davis had been nursing a hand injury for a little over a week, but the open wound he was dealing with appears to have healed. Davis played 35 snaps in the secondary.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday that Davis has an "open wound" on his hand, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Davis has missed more than a week of practice due to his injury, and a timetable for his return remains undisclosed at this time. The 25-year-old safety is primed for a key starting role in Pittsburgh's defense, so his recovery will warrant monitoring. Marcus Allen could benefit from increased reps while Davis remains sidelined.
Davis' agent has not been approached about a possible contract extension, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
A 2016 second-round pick, Davis is entering the final year of his rookie contract after three seasons with a Steelers team that has used him at slot corner, free safety and strong safety over his brief career. The Steelers have a reputation for waiting until August to extend their contract-year players, so it might only be a matter of time until Davis gets a new deal. The 25-year-old has been practicing at free safety in spring workouts and appears to be approaching training camp in good health.
Davis (quadriceps) was inactive for Pittsburgh's 16-13 win over Cincinnati in Week 17.
Despite missing the season finale, Davis led the Steelers with 80 tackles in 2018. He also had an interception in 15 games played. Although his season total dropped from the 92 tackles he amassed in 2017, he led the team for a second straight year. Davis has one year remaining on his current contract and should return as the starting free safety for the 2019 season.
Davis (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Davis missed two days of practice due to a quadriceps injury, and will sit out versus the Bengals despite returning to practice Friday. Jordan Dangerfield will slot into Pittsburgh's starting lineup for Sunday's must-win contest.
