Jaguars Sign Linebacker Slade Norris to Practice Squad

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed second-year linebacker Slade Norris to the practice squad and waived rookie cornerback John Destin.  The Jaguars have one spot open on the practice squad.

Norris was a fourth-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2009 and played in four games as a rookie.  He spent time on the Raiders practice squad and 53-man roster before he was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 30 with a hamstring injury.  He spent the first two weeks of the 2010 season on the Raiders practice squad.

A native of Portland, Oregon, he was a three-year letterman at Oregon State where he played safety, linebacker and defensive end.  He registered 19 sacks and 82 tackles during his collegiate career.
