I'm not sure if they are battling it out for a roster spot, but there have been a couple reports that it may be either/or. If you were the GM, what would you do?

Dolphins | Steve Slaton, Marcus Thigpen battling for spot

Miami Dolphins RBs Steve Slaton and Marcus Thigpen are believed to be fighting for a roster spot. Slaton carried four times for 22 yards in the preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys, while Thigpen had one carry for three yards and a seven-yard reception. Thigpen also had four kickoff returns for 24 yards.

Cut them both is what I voted. Keep Bush, Thomas, Miller and the FB that runs LBs over.

I don't get the infatuation with Thigpen. The guy has almost returned every kick in the preseason....which tells me he's going to make the team. Personally Rishard Matthews has caught every ball thrown his way and never got a chance with the first team. He is easily better as a rookie than Naanee, Cunningham, Wallace and Hogan.

Slaton makes the roster easily. He's been good this Pre Season and they need to keep 4 backs.

Thigpen looks to have a spot locked up. I consider him a WR though.

Took care of it for you. All you need is that random group of letters/numbers after the "v="....so it's the "gDHxtAPz3cw" inside the youtube code, in this case.

I said to cut them both, but if I had to keep one it would be Slaton. Thigpen hasn't impressed me at all.

I agree, I too like Matthews. The kid has caught everything thrown his way in games this preseason. I'm hoping he makes the roster even if he just winds up returning kickoffs or punts. I'd much rather keep him as a 6th receiver than keep Slaton or Thigpen. I think Bush, Thomas, Miller, and Lane will be more than enough guys to put in the backfield.
