"Someone pick up recently released running back Stevel Slaton. He's a 1,000 yard back looking for a job."
The former West Virginia running back lost his job because of a case of "fumblitis," inconsistency on the practice field, and the arrival of last year's NFL leading rusher Arian Foster and the solid back up play of Ben Tate, who has recieved the majority of the carries this season due to Foster's hamstring injury in training camp. Foster is expected to return this week thus making Slaton despensible.
Slaton had a terrific rookie season in 2008 where he rushed for nearly 1,300 yards, scored 10 total touchdowns and recieved nearly 400 yards out of the backfield. So anyone needing a solid back up call the 25 year old talented running back who is desperately looking for a second chance.
