This is a two for one post. First, I want to wish a happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful mom. Michelle Sloter is the most selfless person I know, not only to her two sons, but to everyone she comes in contact with. She has sacrificed for our family over and over and has never once complained about it. She is the reason I am able to do what I love every day. Secondly and just as important, my little brother graduated college! I’m so proud of you Jordan for all of your accomplishments. You haven’t always had the easiest path but you made it your own and you embrace everything that’s thrown at you with an incredible resilience. The world is at your finger tips. Nothing you can do can make me more proud than I already am of you. I love you both more than you know. #mothersday #hedidit

College Years- Southern Miss and Northern Colorado
Having a bright future and impressive stats in his high school years, there was no shortage of offers from the college after his graduation. Right after Tulane and Southern Miss offered a scholarship for Kyle to play in their team as a quarterback.
After much thought, he committed to Southern Miss because of former Tulane assistant Rickey Bustle who worked hard to recruit him. During his first season at the Southern Miss, Sloter started as a redshirt freshman by the coaches in order for him to have a chance to be the Golden Eagles’ 2013 starter.
However, with the sudden change of the head coach, Kyle found himself back in the quarterback depth chart and asked the coaches to work with the wide receivers. Finally, his wish was granted, and as a result, Sloter finished the season with five catches for 35 yards and a touchdown.
During his junior season, Sloter decided to leave Southern Miss for the University of Northern Colorado, as his scholarship was pulled. There also Kyle filled the position of the backup quarterback; only rushed 5 yards and caught six passes for 60 yards on the season.

The following day, Kyle was ready to make a good impression but was stopped to run since he was already on record from the previous day. Still, they allowed him to throw the ball for scouts where he registered an arm speed of 58 mph, just one mph shy from being the best-clocked throwing speed at the NFL Combine.
Likewise, on May 13, 2017, Sloter signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent. In his preseason, the Atlanta-native completed 31 of 43 passes for a total of 413 yards, including three touchdowns. He also recorded no interceptions for a passer pf 125.4, the highest of any rookie quarterback.

Upon asking for the reasons after Vikings waived Kyle, it was disclosed no one wanted to trade Sloter for their team. This led the Vikings to let go of the 25 years old when 53-man rosters had to be set at 3 pm.
Even though Kyle played well in the preseason last year, coach Zimmer was not precisely impressed since he’s mostly gone against third stringers. Talking with the Pioneer Press, Kyle told,
“I’m going to come out with some sort of reactions depending on what happens(after the waiver period). Whatever happens next, I’ll put something out there. I’m not in the mood to comment on it.”
