Former Texans RB Steve Slaton has signed with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.
Now 28 years old, Slaton's big-league career is likely over. He hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2011 with Miami, and his last known free-agent workout occurred in 2012 with the Broncos. Slaton was the No. 6 overall fantasy running back in 2008, but was never the same following a spinal fusion surgery. Fri, Apr 25, 2014 12:44:00 PM

The Broncos will work out free agent RB Steve Slaton on Tuesday.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Broncos will work out a host of free agent backs with Willis McGahee (knee) out indefinitely. Slaton worked out for the Jets last week, but was passed over in favor of Kahlil Bell. He wouldn't be any higher than third on the depth chart if he landed in Denver.
Mon, Nov 19, 2012 02:42:00 PM

The Jets intend to sign a free-agent running back Tuesday.

Bilal Powell has a concussion and Joe McKnight continues to deal with an ankle sprain. Steve Slaton and Khalil Bell are among the backs working out for the Jets Tuesday. Slaton has ties to OC Tony Sparano from their days in Miami together. Regardless, Shonn Greene is a good bet for another 15 empty carries against the Rams Sunday.

Despite working out both Steve Slaton and Ryan Grant, the Lions reportedly have no plans to add a running back this week.

The Lions are getting Mikel Leshoure back from suspension, and there's talk of an expanded role for Joique Bell. It sounds like they were simply doing due diligence on Slaton and Grant to update their emergency list in case of an injury.

The Lions will workout free agent RB Steve Slaton next week.

Slaton has received interest from the Bears and Redskins since being released earlier this month. With Mikel Leshoure eligible to return from suspension in Week 3, he would be used strictly as an insurance policy behind Kevin Smith.

The Bears are "taking a look" at free agent RB Steve Slaton.

It sounds like they're giving him a tryout on Friday or over the weekend. The Bears already have their Week 2 game out of the way after losing to the Packers on Thursday night. Slaton would be insurance for Matt Forte (ankle). Forte could miss a month or more with what's believed to be a high ankle sprain.
Fri, Sep 14, 2012 02:44:00 PM

Former Dolphins RB Steve Slaton has passed through waivers unclaimed and is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Redskins were said to be in trade talks for Slaton on a deal that would have sent Anthony Armstrong to the Dolphins Friday, but it never happened. The Skins then balked at claiming Slaton on waivers, and have reportedly expressed no interest in him since. Thus, it sounds like the Fins were behind all the trade talk. Either that, or the Redskins know something we don't about Slaton.

Dolphins released RB Steve Slaton.

The Dolphins and Redskins couldn't complete a rumored trade for the fifth-year pro, though CBS' Jason La Canfora reports Slaton could still end up in Washington. Slaton has carried the ball just 43 times the past two seasons, and made only six catches.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 03:17:00 PM

The Redskins are working on a trade that would send WR Anthony Armstrong to the Dolphins for RB Steve Slaton.

Talks are "ongoing." There are plenty of connections here as Slaton played for current Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan in Houston and Armstrong spent 2008 on the Dolphins' practice squad. Slaton is currently fourth on the running back depth chart in Miami and hasn't earned significant playing time since 2009, but would at least threaten for a role in Washington. The Shanahans aren't afraid to give anyone carries and Slaton fits best in the zone-blocking scheme.

The Miami Herald believes RBs Steve Slaton and Marcus Thigpen are competing for one roster spot.

This is interesting because it suggests Slaton is on the roster bubble after working with the first-team offense when training camp opened exactly one month ago. Despite the sterling offseason reports, Slaton will face off with Thigpen, a former CFL standout who is also seeing reps at wide receiver, in Wednesday's preseason finale.
Tue, Aug 28, 2012 10:37:00 PM

Steve Slaton got "a lot" of work with the first-team offense, along with Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas, as the Dolphins opened training camp Friday.

Slaton emerged as a coaching-staff favorite during offseason practices, and it appears they are serious about giving him a shot at playing time. Rookie Lamar Miller has been impressive as well. As crowded as this backfield is, Slaton remains an extreme long shot to make an early-season fantasy impact.
Sat, Jul 28, 2012 03:32:00 AM

According to the Miami Herald, the new Dolphins coaching staff "really likes" RB Steve Slaton.

New coach Joe Philbin likes Slaton's fit in his zone scheme. Reggie Bush is locked in as the starter, and GM Jeff Ireland traded up for Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller the past two years. Even with Philbin's backing, Slaton will need an impressive showing throughout August to keep his roster spot.
Mon, Jul 23, 2012 01:09:00 AM

Pro Football Weekly "hears" that Dolphins RB Steve Slaton will enter training camp on the roster bubble.

We'll take it a step further and say Slaton is definitely on the bubble after the display rookie Lamar Miller put on during minicamp. Slaton will need the Dolphins to keep four tailbacks on the 53-man roster to have any chance to stick. Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, and Miller are locked into the top three spots.
Wed, Jul 4, 2012 04:06:00 PM

It would cost the Dolphins $0 against the salary cap to cut Steve Slaton before Week 1.

Coach Joe Philbin called Slaton a "good fit" in the Dolphins’ new zone-blocking scheme after he signed a one-year, $700,000 deal (with no signing bonus) in March, but his roster spot was imperiled by the selection of fourth-round RB Lamar Miller. Even if Slaton does eke out a roster spot, he'll be off the radar in all formats of fantasy football.
Mon, May 14, 2012 11:22:00 AM

Coach Joe Philbin explained that the Dolphins re-signed Steve Slaton because he fits their scheme.

Philbin's comments strongly suggest the Fins are turning to a zone-blocking scheme, which Philbin also oversaw in Green Bay. "(Slaton) is a guy we think fits our system of running the football very, very well," Philbin said. "That’s his training. That’s kind of his background in the league so we really felt he was a good fit schematically." Slaton projects as the Dolphins' No. 3 running back with possible kick return value.
