    Steelers sign Defensive Tackle to active roster

    PITTSBURGH — The Steelers added depth to their defensive line today when they signed first-year defensive tackle Scott Paxson to their active roster.

    Paxson (6-4, 292), a first-year player from Penn State, has played in one game for the Steelers this season — Week 5 at Jacksonville — and spent the rest of the year on the team’s practice squad. Paxson was also a member of the Steelers’ practice squad throughout all of 2007 and part of 2006. He initially signed with Pittsburgh as an undrafted rookie in 2006.

    Paxson will wear jersey No. 71 for the Steelers.

    The Steelers made room on their roster for Paxson by releasing veteran running back Najeh Davenport, who most recently signed with the team on Nov. 27. Davenport had seen action in four games this year with the Steelers, but was not active for Pittsburgh’s Week 13 game at New England.

    The Steelers also announced that rookie cornerback Roy Lewis has been re-signed to their practice squad. Lewis has played in one game for the Steelers this season, versus San Diego, after spending most of the year on the team’s practice squad.

    It's just a depth signing till Keisel gets back. then we'll resign Davenport again, Cut Lewis, then resign him, then bring back Matt Cushing

    Matt Cushing....I havn't heard that name in quite some time....lol I agree on why Paxon was brought in and Davenport waived....No need for Dookie if Willie is healthy and going to play.............

    Davenport is the modern era Matt Cushing. That dude was cut and resigned so many times in the Cowher era it was crazy..LOL. If I remember right he was/is a school teacher.

    If we're lucky we stay healthy enough at RB that we don't need him anymore and as far as Paxon goes he'll probably get signed to the PS once Keisel comes back unless they want to keep Roy Lewis.
