Default Davenport Cloes to Signing with Steelers

The Steelers are reportedly close to re-signing Najeh Davenport.

According to Profootballtalk.com, the Steelers won't pursue Jamal Lewis due to his brief history of legal trouble. If this contract with Dookie gets done, Pittsburgh might consider its backfield a done deal.

I really hope they get him signed. But most importantly, I REALLY hope they do not consider the backfield as fully "good to go." IMO, we still NEED, desperately, a power back!

Davenport is meant to be a power back. And he is pretty good on kick and punt returns. Although, I'm not so sure he is the one for the job, I guess we will find out soon.

True.

But, to agree with polamalufan, I do not think he is "The" power back we want.

But I sure do like watching him plow down single tacklerrs on a kick/punt return.

Yeah, that's really what I remember him most for. Which if that is really what I remember him for, then he may be suited more for ST, but if he does show improvement, then we should at least give him a chance. Like I said before though, I think for now we should look for someone else.

I agree. I still think Davenport is the upgrade over Verron that we need, and we need to concentrate on shoring up our D and OL.

i would rather see a guy like kevin jones from detroit, or dominick davis from houston in the backfield than a guy that is going to be expensive like jamal lewis or a guy that is just going to suck like najeh.

I agree ... I just aint real big on Najeh being the answer
to our problems at the power back position... but I dont know if these guys are the answer either. Davis might be alright and I think he would be better for the price that we are gonna
have to pay Davenport.
