Najeh Davenport Re-Signs with Pittsburgh Steelers: Third Time's a Charm?

Eddie RossellCorrespondent INovember 27, 2008

The Steelers gave Najeh Davenport something to be thankful for on this great Turkey Day 2008, his job back...again. For the third time in his career, he has been signed by Pittsburgh to help fill in for injuries.

But he is a much-needed asset for the Steelers that I feel has been unappreciated during his stays in Pittsburgh. The reason he is such a valuable asset?

He is a power runner.

More and more teams are going to the two running back system lately. Hey, why not try it in the Steel City?

Najeh Davenport is what Steeler running is all about: power and explosiveness.

He is very successful on 3rd-and-short, and near the end zone.

I hope he's here to stay this time, because he could really help out the Steelers in the long run.
