Given that the Miami Dolphins occupy a spot near the top of the waiver-wire priority (thanks to their 0-3 record), it’s possible that other teams made a claim for the contract of former Texans running back Steve Slaton.
As pointed out earlier today on our Twitter account (but as someone forgot to mention in a post at PFT), no other team made a claim for Slaton’s services.
It means that, if the Dolphins hadn’t submitted a claim, he would have become a free agent. And that he likely would be making far less than his current $1.2 million salary.
Of course, he may not have accepted an offer to join the Dolphins for $1.2 million, or more than that.
