    The Texans released RB Steve Slaton. Would he be worth picking up to add RB depth? He did have some success, but then fell out of favor in Houston. Could he find success again with another team?

    Why? Are we short on RBs?

    I thought we were short on defensive linemen.

    No but he is established and has been sucessful. Just speculation. It never hurts to pick up depth. What if Mathews were to go down ? Could Tolbert handle the load game after game? Could Todman? No big deal just a thought.

    He won't sign with us, he'd basically be entering the same situation he just left.

    To tell you the truth, I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit picked him up. Best is a good RB, just not a heavy load type of RB.
    Their running game so far, is a bit of a weaker point in Detroit offense. Slaton could get a shot there I suppose.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him in a bolts uniform for the right price. He's pretty fast and seems like hed be good for special teams and returning and maybe on some sproles type plays. Please just no dives up the middle on fourth down!

    We have other holes to fill, particularly on defense. No reason to look at Slaton.

    Of course, the facts of this don't preclude the ******** above from getting in a dig at his daddy. So N4L - who would we cut to bring Slaton in?

    Dolphins picked up Slaton off waivers. So, we might get to see him play this weekend against us.

    Yeah we could have. I'd see that as just about a wash, particularly since we have much more pressing needs. But you couldn't miss a chance to bag on your daddy, could you? :rolleyes:
