I think Davenport is expendable, I'm not sure what his cap number is or if we take a huge hit to cut him but I wouldn't lose any sleep over him being shown the door.

najah is in his last yr of his contract.. there is no harm of keeping him on the team for his last yr.. he can play st and play rb if need be.. and provides depth for his last yr

I agree with that assessment unless they can find someone younger and with more potential to fill his void. Right now, I like him as a ST player and maybe 3rd string RB.

I haven't seen anything from Davenport in the past 2 years that makes me believe he will ever be more than what he has been.

Right now, people like Russell and Davis have shown flashes in pre-season, but I would like to see what they can do. Neither appear to be quick or fast enough to be able to return kickoffs like Davenport can, but it wouldn't surprise me to see them as Davenport's equal as far as a running back is concerned.

Mewelde Moore might just be that Diamond in the rough that we are all looking for to take some of the load off of Willie. Let's hope so.

I think moore is going to be a good compliment to willie parker and in the return game.

Yeah, here is what the Viking fans said when MeMo was signed.


Great signing by the Stillers!

I have always loved MM as a backup, he can be very valuable in that capacity.
_________________
He i going to be the #3 back behind Willie Parker and Najah Davenport... he could and probably will pass Davenport, plus he will get more 3rd down carries I'm sure.
_________________
Dookie Davenport will be cut. MM will be the #2.
_________________
Is he a top flight back? No. But he can contribute on returns, and is a solid receiver, who blocks better then our current #1...
_________________
Mewelde is one of my favorite players, so fun to watch him play. I wish him the best, and I hope he is the most successful back in the league, behind of course AD and CT. And of course, if hes playing against us, I hope he chooses to sit out.
