Dolphins: Davenport given a look

The News
The Dolphins entertained former Packers running back Najeh Davenport on Tuesday, reports the Miami Herald. Davenport rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns with the Packers before breaking his ankle in October.

Our View
Any contract offer would likely be an incentive-laden deal given Davenport's long history of injury. With that said, Najeh would be an intriguing pickup for the Dolphins. He has ties to the area as a former Miami Hurricane and could give the team a big, North-South style runner to complement Ronnie Brown. Those hoping Brown would carry a full load this season, however, can't be too excited that the Fish are taking a look at Davenport.


This wouldn't be great for Ronnie if it happened because Davenport is the kind of back that might be used in goal line and short yardage situations. If this happens then it looks like Brown and Caddy will be in similar situations, both with a TD vulture.

Why doesn't Philadelphia look at Najeh?

They keep letting Buckhalter get injured on them...why not let Najeh get injured too?

I personally would have liked for Pittsburgh to at least take a look at him.....i think he would be great for us in a limited role with Parker as the feature back.

I think there's probably a ton of teams interested in him as a short yardage RB, but none of them want to overpay. He'd be a very nice goalline vulture if he went to Pittsburg, bringing him to Philly wouldn't be bad either (TJ Duckett-esque role).

I don't think this changes Brown's value at all. All teams load up on RB's untill 3 emerge as go to's.

If the Fins think that Davenport will be more effective on short yardage and goal-line situations than Brown then yes it most certainly will affect his value.

get the hell away from Miami Najeh!!

As a Ronnie Brown owner i would hate for him to come to miami.

Do the dolphins really need a Running back? especially if Ricky may be coming back? They would seem to have more pressing needs at offensive line and defense.
