It won't be Cedrick Benson or Shawn Alexander. I talked to Rick This morning and that is what he told me.

Walker from the practice squad
Davenport
and two others who I don't remember. I heard of all three, no big names.

Davenport is actually pretty interesting. He's close to 30, but he hasn't been used much, and he's got a career YPC average of 4.7 - which is exactly what he averaged last year for the Steelers when he had a career high in carries of 107.

Yeah, he's a retread, and no, he's probably not the missing piece of our Super Bowl puzzle (okay - he's definitely not the missing piece of our Super Bowl puzzle), but I like it better than Ced Benson, Shaun Alexander, or any other name I've heard out there.

For those concerned one way or the other, he does have a charge of domestic violence against him (found not guilty), and of course there's the infamous Laundry Basket incident, so those on this board looking for some attitude might find that a plus.

All I can say is that whether it's Walker from the PS, or someone off the street, if they're going to sign a RB to the 53 man roster, I hope the spot they fill is Ahman. Slaton's definitely got potential, and while Taylor may or may not be an NFL runningback, I've finally conceded that even if healthy (yeah - I know), Ahman's a step or two slower than he can afford to be.

He'd probably go looking for the first available hamper.

You know, in cold weather games you'd have to wonder what the source of the steam coming off of him was.

Associated Press


MIAMI -- Green Bay Packers fullback Najeh Davenport was arrested Monday, accused of breaking into a university dormitory and defecating in a woman's closet.


Davenport, 23, surrendered to police Monday and was charged with a second-degree felony count of burglary and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, said Richard Master, a Miami Shores police spokesman.


The former University of Miami player was wanted on a warrant issued in April. He was released Monday from a Miami-Dade County jail after posting a $6,500 bond. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.


"This whole thing is a misunderstanding. Najeh had nothing to do with the situation,'' said Richard Sharpstein, Davenport's attorney.


According to police, Davenport crept into a dorm room at Barry University around 6 a.m. on April 1. A woman sleeping in the room, Mary McCarthy, told police she was startled by a strange sound and saw Davenport squatting in her closet. Davenport then allegedly defecated in a laundry basket, McCarthy told detectives.

I've always liked najeh. He's big and fast, can catch and will play special teams and a really good 3rd down back. Speaking of the incident, he was on sirius and they asked him about it. He said he wasn't evenn in the building. He described the situation as going with nother guy and staying in the car. The ther guy did it, but he was the known name so he was put in the mix. Right before the draft his lawyer told himif he pleads guilty, it will just go away. He said that was the worse advice he ever taken because he has kids and they have to hear about it. He also talked about "the bulldog in lipstick" that he's had to deal with. Overrall, he's a 200 carry back. He has low miles, good burst and size. He's a older better version of what they think taylor is.

That story never gets old. Even if Najeh Davenport never plays another down in the NFL, he'll always have a special place in my heart.
