WELCOME BACK, NAJEH


As expected, the Steelers brought back RB Najeh Davenport today, and they will also add RB Gary Russell back to the active roster after a stint on the practice squad. If any more running backs are injured, I'm guessing Duce Staley's number is next on the call-back list.
Davenport played two seasons in Pittsburgh, rushing for 499 yards on 107 carries (4.7 YPC) and adding five touchdowns in 2007. He was released due to the presence of new additions Mewelde Moore and Rashard Mendenhall. He was also a popular member of the Steeler basketball team.
The Steelers are also working out guard Doug Legursky, a rookie free agent from Marshall, who was a 2008 training camp casualty.

It appears as though the text problem has reappeared.

Davenport couldn't find the hole if he walked around the edge of the Grand Canyon.

Does this mean the Steeler's basketball team is looking to go undefeated this year? If you ask me they are overrated being they play mostly children and out-of-shape teachers.
