With every free agent running back and his brother wanting to fill the void in Denver’s backfield, the Broncos decided to workout just one free agent, Steve Slaton.
Per Mike Klis of the Denver Post:
The Broncos worked out former Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton on Tuesday morning. As of Tuesday evening, the Broncos had not yet signed the former West Virginia...
The Detroit Lions are about as unsettled in their backfield as any other team in the NFL today. Kevin Smith has played fairly well, and Mikel Leshoure is expected back from suspension for the team’s next game Sunday against the struggling Tennessee Titans. With Joique Bell also in the mix, one would think that would be enough to piece together a satisfying enough running back committee...

Free Agent running back Steve Slaton will receive another work out for employment this coming week.
He will work out for the Detroit Lions in the coming days. Slaton was released by the Miami Dolphins in their final cuts.
He worked out for the Chicago Bears late this week, but the team did not sign...
The Chicago Bears will try out free agent running back Steve Slaton on Saturday, according to ESPN Chicago. News of the workout was first reported by the Chicago Tribune. The Bears are looking to add another running back to the roster with starter Matt Forte out with a high ankle sprain. He sustained the injury to his right ankle in the third quarter Thursday against the Green...
With Matt Forte on the shelf -- potentially for some time -- the Chicago Bears are poking around for running back help on the NFL free-agent pile.
A league source confirmed to the Chicago Tribune that the Bears plan to bring in veteran Steve Slaton for a workout at their facility on Saturday.
Slaton lost a numbers game with the Miami Dolphins and was cut on Sept. 1. The fifth...
The Dolphins claimed second-year cornerback R.J. Stanford, according to his agent David Canter, and former Texans safety Troy Nolan, according to the Houston Chronicle. Receiver Anthony Armstrong, released by Washington yesterday after reportedly trying to trade him, was also claimed on Saturday, a source told the Post. And the Dolphins also claimed former Rams linebacker Sammy Brown...
On Friday as NFL teams were clamoring to make their final roster decisions in order to reach the league imposed 53-man minimum, the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins were reportedly in discussions regarding a trade. Several South Florida news outlets were reporting that the Redskins were interested in Dolphins RB Steve Slaton and Miami was interested in Washington WR Anthony...
Earlier today it was reported that the Washington Redskins were trying to trade wide receiver Anthony Armstrong to the Dolphins in exchange for running back Steve Slaton.
It looks like the trade talks never evolved into anything since Armstrong was later waived by the Redskins.
WR Anthony Armstrong probably the most notable name on Redskins’ cut list.

Trade Update: The Washington Redskins trade wide receiver Anthony Armstrong to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for running back Steve Slaton.
The Redskins also release running back Tim Hightower today, which might have something to do with them brining in Slaton.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins and Dolphins are working on a trade that will send wide receiver Anthony Armstrong to Miami and running back Steve Slaton to Washington D.C.
I’m told #Redskins working on trade sending Armstrong to Miami for RB Steve Slaton

Armstrong is a good receiver that will give...
Miami Dolphins 4th-round draft pick Lamar Miller is fighting just to make the final 53-man roster. He’s currently listed as the 4th-string running back, behind Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and Steve Slaton.
At this point, Miller’s best chance to make the active roster may be by winning the kick returner competition. He’s battling Marcus Thigpen, who joined the team from the CFL, for the job.
Daniel Thomas will be pushed for the No. 2 role in the Dolphins' backfield, according to the Miami Herald.
Reggie Bush is locked into the No. 1 spot, with Thomas being challenged by Steve Slaton and rookie Lamar Miller for the primary backup job. This is not surprising as Thomas had trouble moving the chains as a rookie, namely as he was a dismal 3-for-13 converting...
One veteran who we hear may be on the roster bubble for Miami this summer is RB Steve Slaton, who re-signed with the team in the spring. Slaton had 17 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown in three games with Miami, including 11 carries for 55 yards in the season finale. He has yet to return to his rookie year form (when he rushed 268-1,282-9 in 2008 with Houston) and the Dolphins...
The Dolphins have announced the re-signing of running back Steve Slaton on Wednesday. Slaton was claimed off waivers from the Texans on Sept. 28, 2011 as insurance for Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas. Slaton had 17 carries for 64 yards (3.8 average) with one touchdown and a long of 28 yards in his three games for Miami. Staying with the Dolphins is a safe move for Slaton, but he'...
As we have reached the halfway point of the 2012 NFL Free Agency period, one trend has become very clear-running backs are not in high demand this season in the first wave of free agency. In the opening two days of this year’s free agency period, wide receivers flew off the shelves with the wideouts garnering large paydays. DE Mario Williams, considered by many to...
Aaron Wilson of Profootball.scout.com reports veteran running back Steve Slaton remains with the Miami Dolphins after agreeing to a one-year contract, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. Slaton rushed for 64 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries in three games last season. For his career, Slaton has rushed for 1,896 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has caught...
The Dolphins made a minor move signing running back Jerome Messam from the CFL. This past year, Messam ran for 1,057 yards in 18 games and was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian Player.
Messam, 6-3 and 245 pounds and a big tough runner. Messam has had some character issues in the past which led to him being released by the BC Lions before joining the Eskimos last year....
The Dolphins grounded the Jets with a 19-17 win. Miami ends the season at 6-10 while New York drops to .500 at 8-8.
Quarterback Matt Moore completed 22 of 32 passes for 135 yards, with one touchdown against two interceptions. With Reggie Bush on the shelf, Steve Slaton led the running game with 55 yards on 11 totes, while rookie Daniel Thomas was stuck in neutral with...
