It is, indeed, Mr. Rain Man.

But, I was hoping we would sign Gary Howboutsomeflatonyourass.

As mentioned elsewhere....Slaughter is my pick for URFA to make the team this year.

He's exactly what I think the Chiefs look for in a FB...he just wants to punish defensive players....a mobile offensive guard in the backfield. He's been blocking for backs like Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown, and made a first year player look pretty good this season.

Wow.... I like this! Just think how cool it would be for LJ to see a hole opening up and following the Slaughter through the D-Line for a TD.......... it's like unintentional motivation for LJ.......

Gary is Jamalís adopted brother.

It is, actually, a very moving story, Mr. Rain Man.

Jamalís mom and dad (Rolanda and Luther) had always wanted a brother for Jamal, but Rolanda was unable to bear any more children due to complications arising from surgery she had after an horrific car accident on state highway 9 in which her uterus was torn from her body.

Rolanda and Luther were on the waiting list for years when they were finally presented with little Gary by the agency. Little Gary was a crack baby, but they took him home anyway and Luther gave him the family name. Jamal and Gary were the best of friends as well as brothers and spent many a summer afternoon kicking the crap out of the other children in the neighborhood and taking their toys.

But, deep down, Gary was unhappy. He didnít really know who he was. So, years later, Gary investigated his biological parents who wanted to remain anonymous. And, as it turned out, his real father and mother were still alive and living in Pasadena.

Anyway, Gary loved Rolanda and Luther as if they were his real parents. So he killed his biological parents, blamed Jamal, and (so far as I know) Jamal is still sweating it out on death row pending appeal of his case.

Auburn FB Jake Slaughter

Slaughter will never run for 1,000 yards in a season, but he will be the lead blocker for plenty of 1,000-yard backs. In fact, the former linebacker already has for the Tigers. Slaughterís role increased during last yearís perfect season as he consistently sprung open gaping holes for eventual first-round draft choices, Ronnie Brown and Carnell Williams. And this fall, the senior was one of the unheralded cogs in an Auburn running game that featured first-year starter Kenny Irons, who led the SEC in rushing. Every program has a dozen or so Slaughters, faceless, nameless, selfless players that are as irreplaceable as they are anonymous. No one outside the Plains of Auburn could identify No. 44 in a lineup, but subtract him from the offense, and things just wouldnít click as smoothly. Even as a 160-pound teen, Slaughter craved contact and dreamt of playing major college football. Nearly 85 pounds and five years later, heís recognized by NFL scouts as one of the most physical and technically sound blocking backs in the country, and appreciated by every Tiger seeking a sliver of daylight or an extra second of pass protection. Since switching to offense in 2003, he has earned eight carries, a level of production that wonít ramp up anytime soon. Thatís just fine with Slaughter. Like a pulling guard, heís content just to be dishing out punishment if it means Auburnís winning and one of his teammates is piling up big numbers.

Jake Slaughter is a great name for a fullback.That it is! Between him and Julian Battle, we've got the two most awesome names in the NFL! If only that amounted to something on the field. The other coolest name in the NFL is (or was) Eric Bienemy (who I always liked to call "Eric the Enemy," kind of like "Eric the Awful").

Now we have Bonecrusher, Slaughter, Battle, and the Liberian Nightmare. We sound like a Canadian hockey team.

We just need the Hanson Brothers for a Hockey team, or for the Xmen we need Storm so we can see Halle Berrys boobs.

From Jake's on campus workout at Auburn - (6-1 1/8, 242) ran his 40s in 4.78 and 4.84 seconds. He had a 4.35 short shuttle, a 7.24 three-cone drill, a 32-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot-8 broad jump and 25 bench presses. Actually pretty good for a FB.

Fullbacks shouldn't be at trolley run's. They should be at cock fights.

Iowanian,
if my reply to your post regarding this sounded like sarcasm, I apologize. This looks like a great signing, potentially.

Fullbacks are a funny thing. I don't ever get how they can go so low in the draft when they do so much blocking in the run game.

I'm a little worried if this guy's our starter, but I guess if there's not that much of a change in run blocking from college to pros, he can plug into the system well enough.

Moooo
