Jamoris Slaughter is no longer a Cleveland Brown. Slaughter was a sixth round selection in last year’s draft. The safety never appeared in a regular season game with the Browns, having spent his time on the practice squad or the trainer’s room.
Sixth round picks aren’t likely to be impact players on your team, but his release further thins the 2013 class which includes Barkevious Mingo, DB Leon McFadden, DL Armonty Bryant and OL Garrett Gilkey.
The Browns also signed OL Alex Parsons and K/P Jake Rogers.
Parsons is from USC. He was drafted by the Raiders in 2010. He spent a couple seasons on the practice squad and played in sixteen games throughout his career with one start.
Rogers is from Cincinnati, signing an UDFA contract out of college in 2011. Rogers has spent time with the Saints, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Giants and Redskins, but has not appeared in a game.
Last week 2014 draft pick OL Joel Bitonio limped off the field with what is being reported as a high ankle sprain. Good chance that Parsons is a guy they want to look at as an insurance policy.
