Looks as if Najeh Davenport had dreams of heading to the desert, he’s going to have to change his mind. AZCentral.com today is reporting that the Cards have no interest in bringing in Davenport, who’s been looking for a new team since his release from the Steelers last week.
Davenport had said in an interview with NFL Radio that there were a few teams that peeked his interest, with the Cardinals being on the top of the list due to the fact he was use to the offense after playing under coach Ken Whisenhunt in Pittsburgh. GM Rod Graves of the Cardinals said to reporter Kent Sommers via text message today that the team has not interest in Davenport.
The other team that Davenport pointed out in the interview that he wouldn’t mind going to is the Lions, who look like they could use a back right now, and even attended the workout of former back Kevin Jones. The Detroit Free Press picked up our story from earlier in the week that talked about Davenport wanting to go to either Arizona or Detroit.
Now it looks as if the Lions may be the #1 destination of Davenport, as it’s one team that more than likely would have some interest in the now former Packer and Steeler.
