Steve Slaton Waived

The Houston Texans waived Steve Slaton today, ending an up-and down tenure in the Lone Star State. Slaton rushed for over a 1,200 yards in his rookie year, and seemed poised to be the next breakout star. However, a slow start the following year (which included a fumbling issue) and a season-ending injury derailed his career.

He came back, but found himself out of favor with the Gary Kubiak, and eventually ended up as the fourth string running back to start this season. He now finds himself without a job.

Slaton certainly still has talent, but will he get an opportunity. And if he does, will he take advantage of it? The life span of an NFL career is short, and even shorter for a running back.
