Adam Caplan reports that the Miami Dolphins have agreed to terms with tailback Steve Slaton on a one-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Slaton, 26, managed just 84 yards on 24 carries last season, appearing in three games for the Dolphins and three for the Houston Texans. He did reel off a 42-yard kickoff return for the Fins.

Returning to South Beach, Slaton will battle for a roster spot behind Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas. He will have competition from 245-pound former CFL star Jerome Messam.
