Browns sign sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter, announce other roster moves

The Browns today announced that they have come to terms with sixth round pick Jamoris Slaughter on a four year contract. Details have not been made available yet.

The Browns also confirmed the release of S Eric Haag, as well as linebacker Ryan Rau and running back Robbie Rouse.

The club did sign RB Brandon Jackson, as well as two undrafted free agents, wide receiver Michael Edwards and defensive back Kenronte Walker.

Here is the team released biographical information on Edwards and Walker:

“Edwards was initially signed by the Browns on April 30, 2013, and was waived on May 13 after participating in the team’s rookie minicamp. He was a two-year starter at the University of Texas-El Paso (2011-12) after transferring from Mt. San Antonio College (2010) in Walnut, California. He recorded 101 career receptions for 1,477 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons at UTEP. Born December 14, 1989, the 5-11, 200-pound Edwards is a native of Glendora, California, where he attended Glendora High School.

A two-year letterman at safety at the University of Missouri (2011-12), Walker appeared in 25 games, recording 115 tackles, one sack, one interception, one forced fumble, one pass defensed and three defensive fumble recoveries. Walker redshirted the 2010 season after transferring from City College of San Francisco, where he notched 36 tackles, five pass breakups, two sacks and one interception in two seasons (2008-09). Born July 28, 1990, the 6-0, 210-pound Walker is a native of Fayetteville, N.C., where he attended Westover High School.”

Brandon Jackson of course was with the Browns since 2011.

    Guess Haag was not deemed a little man who could hit. They probably think they’ll do better with a street FA with a more physical approach than a technician-type kid that better fit a Jauron defense.

    But Brandon Jackson? He’s had like 4 carries in 2 years and was never better than ok. This is the position you might uncover a gem FA.

    Hopefully the Haag release signals the coming of Kerry Rhodes. His signing should’ve happened a lot longer ago

    Hope you’re right. It just makes too much sense, though.

    Heck at this point I’d even consider taking a flier on a decent veteran who could mentor Slaughter – such as Woodson or Quintin Mikell – as a stop gap for a year or two.
