With Joe Haden likely on his way out of Pittsburgh, the Steelers are reportedly targeting Buccaneers cornerback Carlton Davis in free agency, according to Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan.
Davis, 25, was a second-round pick out of Auburn in 2018. In four seasons with the Buccaneers, Davis recorded six interceptions and 52 passes defended. The Steelers have nearly $30 million in cap space, so they should be able to afford a young upcoming player like Davis. Davis would come at a high price, however. His market value is around $17 million per year. The Steelers do not have the best history when it comes to drafting cornerbacks, either, so getting a proven player in free agency would be a prudent move.
Fillipponi also reported that the Steelers will make an effort to re-sign Terrell Edmunds, but if they can't land a deal with Edmunds, the Steelers could go after Buccaneers' safety Jordan Whitehead. Whitehead is from the Pittsburgh area and played at Pitt.
