I'm just wondering how will he be fantasy wise to MIA since he's going to be the same role as Bush.

Can't you just picture it now . . . Slaton starting over Bush. Haha, now that would be hoot.

It'll never happen though. They'll figure out soon enough why the Texans dumped him. Then, it's a one way ticket to Outoftheleagueville, USA.

I've met Steve twice. He's a nice guy.

Good luck to him. I hope he can stay healthy.

If Slaton plays in MIA like he did his rookie year he'll be great. Sadly he's been M.I.A since that year. Best Wishes to him.

Kubiak didn't try a single time this season to get Slaton the ball in space.
Miami has switched to a spread offense, and Steve should be good
there.

That's not true.

Just in this last game he got him the ball on a pitch and I think a quick screen.

He didn't play him because he's black. That's why he left him to wither on the vine and gave the carries to his other RB's.

Steve needs a change of pace, he's obviously in the dog house or lost his confidence. A change of scenery may be just what the doctor ordered, and Miami isn't realy that bad of a city :)

Totally agree. Have you noticed the amount of white guys on the roster? Dex will agree with me. Kubiak is a racist sun-um *****!

Tru dat. I've seen Kubiak leading a KKK rally by dressing up as an ice cream cone outside an Ice Cream Parlor. And what about all this B.S. about wearing 'liberty white' to Texans games? Whites are oppressive by nature and know nothing about liberty.

i'd been hoping for a couple years now that he'd somehow end up in green bay, his running style and receiving just seem to me like a perfect fit for them. hopefully it works out in miami, atleast he's an upgrade over bush lol.

Dolphins were only team to make a claim for Slaton

It means that, if the Dolphins hadn’t submitted a claim, he would have become a free agent. And that he likely would be making far less than his current $1.2 million salary.

He hasn't been the same since his neck injury. He can't hold onto the ball, he is tentative running, and he has lost his mojo.

Not to be obstreperous and in admittedly limited action, but SS hasn't fumbled the ball since his neck surgery.

He also lost that extra weight he put on a couple of years ago.

I don't understand why he can't run in our ZBS, isn't that what they ran @ WV? He still has the speed, just haven't seen that vision needed to read blocks.

I watched slaton a lot at wv and he didnt have good vision even then. I remember watching games with my friend back then and talking about how he wasn't as good as some people made him seem.

Slaton often ran into the backs of his linemen in college. When he gets enough carries though, he has the speed, open field toughness and balance to make big plays.

But his agility and vision are not great.

This is probably his last chance to make it in the NFL, so I hope he does well too. I would love it if he found his mojo in Miami and beat out Bush for a rotation spot. When Slaton was doing so good in his first year here, I used to say we had a better and cheaper version of Bush. It would be nice if that were actually to happen once again. Because it was certainly true Slaton's first year here.

why all the hate, i liked slaton, he had 1 good season for us. And then sucked, so what. I hope he goes on to become a starter and rush for many 1,000 yard seasons.

Slaton has never had good vision.

Not even in college.

He'll bust a big one occasionally though.

Did anyone actually watch that TD? It looked just like any number of his 1-yd runs here in Houston. He ran right into the back of his OL and kept pumping. LOL

Congrats to him, though. A TD is a TD.

unfortunate after his injury, I had a chance to talk with him on several occasions and he was a really nice guy from what I could tell. Very down to earth talked a lot about his time at WVU.

Hope he's put enough money away, and can make a transition to life after the NFL.
