Browns Waive S Jamoris Slaughter, 6th Round Pick from 2013

The Cleveland Browns waived S Jamoris Slaughter on Monday, one day before the start of the team's mandatory minicamp. Slaughter was a 6th-round draft pick by the Browns in 2013, but that was under the previous regime.

He was coming off of an injury when Cleveland drafted him, but the belief was that there was some talent the team could tap in to. He was also viewed as a versatile player who could play safety, cover the slot, or even move into the box around the linebacker position.

Unfortunately for Slaughter, more injuries hampered Slaughter's ability to make an impact in training camp last year.

Instead of placing Slaughter on injured reserve, the Browns kept him on their practice squad all of last season.

The Browns still lack proven depth at safety, but there are still three players looking to compete for backup roles with some potential: Aubrey, Jordan Poyer, and Johnson Bademosi. Another team might still try to latch on to Slaughter's potential, though:
