Steve Slaton signs with CFL’s Toronto Argonauts

Former NFL running back Steve Slaton has agreed to terms on a deal with the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts. Slaton becomes the latest ex-NFL player to continue his career north of the border.

Slaton has a breakout rookie season with the Houston Texans in 2008. After being drafted in the third round of that year’s NFL Draft, Slaton rushed for 1,282 yards and nine touchdowns. He also caught 50 passes. However, his numbers quickly went downhill. In 2009, Slaton rushed for 437 yards and had 44 receptions, but in three more NFL seasons he never rushed for more than 93 yards in any year.

Within the last few weeks, the CFL has also become the landing spot for Chad Johnson and Pat White. Johnson signed a deal with the Montreal Alouettes after attending the team’s minicamp and White, who formed a dynamic duo in with Slaton when the two played together in college for West Virginia, will suit up for the Edmonton Eskimos.
