    Steelers sign RB Davenport

    Steelers sign RB Davenport

    Thursday, March 01, 2007
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers today signed backup running back Najeh Davenport to a two-year $2 million contract, paying him the kind of money that should put him high in their plans for next season.

    Davenport, who would have become an unrestricted free agent on Friday, received a $405,000 signing bonus, a salary of $595,000 this year and $1 million next year.

    The Steelers signed Davenport to a one-year contract after their first game last season when Green Bay released him. He eventually became their backup to starter Willie Parker after Verron Haynes was injured at mid-season. New Coach Mike Tomlin has stated a preference for using two running backs, something that is becoming a trend in the NFL.

    Well there is the big back everyone wants.

    no it isn't, he is not the big back we need, but i'm glad he's back for cheap, he's a very good special team player for us, and he was pretty good recieving out of the back field, i much rather have him then haynes

    Well one of my off-season predictions has come true.

    Any player with the nick name Dookie is ok in my book.

    I am kind of happy with this, he can be the number three, but yes, we need to draft a RB.

    Im glad to see Najeh back, Im anxious to see what he can do with this chance.

    We'll still draft atleast 1 RB though to give him some competition since Haynes is gone and also because we'll need depth.
