Update (12:28 PM EST): Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Indianapolis Colts and former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Sean Davis have indeed agreed to a new one-year deal upon his free agent visit on Thursday:
Davis should provide an experienced potential third safety option for the Colts and add much needed depth to the back of their secondary (along with special teams value).

The former 2016 2nd round pick of the Steelers has made 42 career starts, recording 259 tackles (201 solo), 11 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 5 interceptions, 21 passes defensed, a forced fumble, and 2 fumble recoveries. He’s appeared in 64 career games.
Davis made one start but played in all 16 games for the Steelers this past season, as he recorded 12 tackles (11 solo), a pass defensed, and a fumble recovery.
During 2020, he earned a +58.1 overall grade from PFF (subscription)—including a +72.6 run defense grade and a +85.5 tackling grade.
With free agent Malik Hooker looking unlikely to be re-signed, the Colts could use additional depth at safety.
Davis is more of a strong safety type—with his ability to play in the box, and also contribute on special teams. However, his addition would promote overall competition to the position.
