Dolphins claim Steve Slaton off waivers

SlatonPosted by Josh Katzowitz

It didn’t take long for former Texans running back Steve Slaton to land on his feet with a new team. As Rapid Reporter Chris Perkins writes, the Dolphins have claimed Slaton off waivers, meaning Slaton -- waived on Tuesday -- was only unemployed for a day.

It also means he joins a Miami backfield in which rookie Daniel Thomas has looked good rushing for 202 yards in the past two games and Reggie Bush seems to be slipping down the depth chart after fumbling twice last Sunday.

Slaton had a standout rookie season, rushing for 1,282 yards and nine touchdowns, but he’s been bothered by injuries the past few seasons. But if he’s healthy, he certainly could help complement Thomas.

And what does the signing say about Bush’s future with the team? Maybe nothing and the Dolphins took the opportunity to sign a still young running back who obviously has plenty of talent. Or maybe Miami took a look at the fact that Bush has rushed for 80 yards in three games (and totaled 72 receiving yards) and determined he’s not helping the offense quite as much as he should.

That said, we should point out that coach Tony Sparano said Monday that Bush is still the No. 1 running back. Still, the signing of Slaton probably doesn’t leave Bush feeling completely secure in Miami.
