Cleveland Browns Sign 6th Round Draft Pick, S Jamoris Slaughter

Ezra Shaw

One down, four to go. The Cleveland Browns signed their first draft pick of the season: safety Jamoris Slaughter. Taken in the 6th round at No. 175 overall, Slaughter agreed to a four-year deal. According to a pre-determined draft chart, Slaughter's contract will be worth about $2.27 million, with a $118,000 signing bonus.

Slaughter is recovering from an Achilles' injury he suffered last season. He has not been able to participate in offseason activities so far, but he is expected to be ready-to-go for training camp. After the team released safety Eric Hagg earlier in the day, it would seem as though Slaughter will have a one-on-one competition with Tashaun Gipson for the starting safety role opposite T.J. Ward.
