Steelers Sign Veteran Running Back; Waive Cobbs

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers added size and experience to their backfield today when they signed veteran running back Najeh Davenport to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Davenport (6-1, 247), a fifth-year veteran from the University of Miami, spent his first four NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers. In 39 games, Davenport has rushed for 1,068 yards and seven touchdowns on 217 carries (4.9 avg.). He also has caught 17 passes for 107 yards (6.3 avg.).

Originally drafted by the Packers in the fourth round (135th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft, Davenport missed most of the 2005 season after breaking his ankle on Oct. 9 against New Orleans. The 27-year-old Davenport, whose first name is pronounced "NAH-jay", set a personal best with 178 rushing yards on Nov. 29, 2004, against the St. Louis Rams.

The Steelers made room on their roster for Davenport by releasing rookie running back Patrick Cobbs, who the team claimed off of waivers from the New England Patriots on Sept. 1.

Yeah, I thought it was an undisclosed draft pick, but now it appears we got him from the waiver wire. That was the first thing I thought too, was why would they waste a draft pick ....

amidst the j. kuhn mania, who the forgotten man is, is noah herron. how come nobody bemoans us losing him last year? he did replace davenport on the packers depth chart. in fact i'd say he was and is better than kuhn.

i still cant figure out why greenbay cut him.
