Steelers sign RB Najeh Davenport
The Steelers today signed former running back Najeh Davenport to help add depth to their injured offensive backfield roster. Davenport worked out late this morning and signed a contract early this afternoon. Davenport played for the Steelers the past two seasons but was released after the Steelers drafted running back Rashard Mendenhall. To make room on the roster the Steelers placed Mendenhall (fractured shoulder) and guard Kendall Simmons (ruptured Achilles) on injured reserve.
