Slaughter, 30, signed with Baltimore on July 31, 2008 but was released on August 30 in final cuts. The 6-8, 340-pound offensive tackle spent five seasons with the Oakland Raiders (2001-06) after spending his rookie season in 2000 with the Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets. All of his 43 career games and seven starts were in Oakland. The fifth-year veteran originally signed with Dallas as an undrafted rookie out of Alcorn State. He will wear jersey No. 68.
To get a real scouting report on Slaughter, we asked Silver and Black Illustrated publisher Mike Wagaman, who was kind enough to share his thoughts—
When he was with Oakland, Slaughter was basically a career backup. The team loved his size but he never could get into the starting lineup even when they had sub-par talent ahead of him. But he kept coming back year after year, which was surprising to a lot of people. Not to beat the guy down but he really never did much to impress me.
The Jaguars have been busy signing big guys for depth as three-fifths of their starting offensive line is now out. The team is hopeful that at least one of these guys can be a serviceable patch.
