Steelers looking to trade RB Davenport

NFL.com Wire Reports

The Steelers are looking to trade running back Najeh Davenport and are calling teams to gauge interest in a trade, NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting.
Davenport played in 15 games -- starting one -- for the Steelers in 2007, scoring five touchdowns while rushing for 499 yards. Davenport has played two seasons for the Steelers after spending the first four years of his career in Green Bay

I assume that he is going to get cut anyway. so if we can get any value out of him that would be nice.

Better idea than just cutting him. Like they did with Porter.

I liked Najeh, but it is clear his services will no longer be needed by the Steelers, especially with the Mendenhall pick. Best wishes to Pooper!

1 year remaining (2008) for $1 mil on a 2-year, $2 mil contract:

(March 2, 2007 )

The Steelers signed running back Najeh Davenport to a two-year, $2 million contract Thursday, the same day they released third-down back Verron Haynes.
Davenport, who rushed for 221 yards on 60 carries and one touchdown in 2006, would have become an unrestricted free agent on Friday. The Steelers will pay him $595,000 this year and $1 million next year, with a $405,000 signing bonus.

The Steelers signed Davenport to a one-year contract after their first game last season when Green Bay released him. Davenport became Willie Parker's backup after Haynes was lost to an injury suffered Oct. 29 at Oakland.

The guy did whatever the Steelers asked him to do the last 2 years and I appreciate what he did, but the writing is all over the wall for Najeh.

I don't think he's going to get traded. Everyone knows that he's not going to be a Steeler for the 2008 season, so why give somthing up when you can get him for nothing?

It's the same reason we simply cut Porter. Everyone knew it was going to happen, therefore we weren't going to get any offers.

Unless you really want him or need him for depth at your RB position and don't want to risk another team jumping at him the second he hits the free agency market. He'd come a lot cheaper than an Alexander would and he is a very good role player that is willing to take on the 2nd back position and play special teams.
