The Browns announced the signing of rookie safety Jamoris Slaughter, their sixth-round pick, on Tuesday.
A 19-game starter at Notre Dame, Slaughter (6-0, 195) missed most of the 2012 campaign after tearing his Achilles tendon. If healthy, he could have a reasonable shot at making the roster, as the Browns have made some changes at safety in the offseason.
Among the Browns’ changes at safety is the departure of Eric Hagg, which the Browns confirmed Tuesday. The club also confirmed the re-signing of running back Brandon Jackson, news of which PFT reported last week.
In other roster moves, the Browns re-signed wide receiver Michael Edwards and signed defensive back Kenronte Walker, both undrafted free agents. Also, the club waived veteran linebacker Ryan Rau and rookie running back Robbie Rouse.
