Deja Vu: Steelers Release Davenport Again

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released Najeh Davenport. Again.

Najeh Davenport was released Saturday by the Pittsburgh Steelers, five weeks after they brought back their former top backup running back following a number of injuries.

Davenport, the Steelers' starter during their wild-card playoff loss to Jacksonville in January, was let go even though starter Willie Parker is not expected to play Sunday against Indianapolis because of a sore shoulder.

It is quite interesting that they did this since Parker won't play today, but he did have a bum hamstring and has gained all of five yards this season. Pittsburgh used the roster spot to bring back linebacker Donovan Woods from the practice squad.

And when you discuss Davenport, you have to mention the fact that the Dump Truck was arrested in 2002 for burglary and mischief when he blew mud in a woman's laundry basket.
