Default Could Davis be getting some decent playing time next year?

Is it possible that Bruce Davis could be either playing or starting next year as DE?

Isn't he a little small for that position? Are we losing Kiesel?

Yeah, because he isnt gonna replace Aaron Smith .....especially when Smith weighs 50 lbs more than him.

I liked his interviews and approach coming to the Steelers but he must have not earned playing time in TC. With our group of monster LB's that is not necissarily an easy thing to do. Hope he can bulk up a bit and earn a regular roster spot next year as a pass rushing LB in certian packages. He could be a Timmons type and needs a year or two to develop, plus he does look on the skinny side for an every down LB and hope he has been pumping iron this year.

DE? NEVER gonna happen

I hope next year he becomes at least a decent 3 down pass rusher. Or make some ST tackles....

You know......John Kuhn could play DE. He outweighs Davis by 7 lbs, is more athletic and invented the cure for polio.

Davis is an OLB not a DE. He could be a 4-3 DE but never a 3-4 DE.

Probably an OLB, I would guess. You need a 300-pound fat guy to be a DE in our system, which he ain't. Maybe they were hoping he could fill in either as a starter or a backup after Harrison bolts for his big payday next year.

Davis was drafted to replace Harrison when his contract is up after next season. Until then he will have to work his butt off to develop into a good edge rusher and spell him next year.

davis will never be a DE for the steelers. he is strictly a LB for a 3-4. IMO, he will be cut next season.
