Eagles' Darius Slay: Dealt to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles acquired Slay from the Lions on Thursday in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Slay will sign a three-year, $50 million contract extension with Philadelphia that contains $30 million guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Detroit's signing of Desmond Trufant a day earlier likely expedited the trade of Slay, who was a prime candidate to get moved during the offseason. He'll immediately step in as the Eagles' No. 1 cornerback after earning Pro Bowl nods in each of the past three seasons. Slay tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions in 2017 and has a league-best 82 pass breakups over the past five seasons. His contract extension will deservedly make him one of the NFL's highest-paid defensive backs.

Lions' Darius Slay: Likely on move to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles are working to acquire Slay from the Lions and then sign him to a three-year extension, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Slay has proven to be one of the league's best coverage cornerbacks the past three years, earning Pro Bowl nods in each of those season. During the 2019 campaign, he registered 46 tackles, 13 pass breakups and two interceptions over 14 games. The Lions haven't been able to agree to a long-term deal with the 29-year-old cornerback, but it appears the Eagles are willing to commit to him long term in an attempt to shore up their secondary. If this deal comes to fruition, Slay would be locked down through the 2023 campaign.

Lions' Darius Slay: Offseason trade possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay and the Lions continue to discuss a long-term contract, but it's possible the cornerback could enter the trade market if no deal is reached in the coming weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports

Slay is entering the final year of a contract that has a $13.4 million cap hit in 2020, and any extension with the former All-Pro defender would likely cost upward of $16 to $20 million per year. While it may sound crazy for the talent-deficient Lions to part with one of their best players, Detroit may need help at too many positions to devote that kind of capital to an aging cornerback, especially if it could net a first-round pick in exchange for the 29-year-old. After all, Jacksonville just flipped another (albeit younger) All-Pro corner in Jalen Ramsey to a contender for two first-round picks and change.

Lions' Darius Slay: Two picks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay registered 46 tackles, 13 pass breakups, two interceptions and one fumble recovery over 14 games in 2019.

Among the top five highest-paid corners this season, Slay didn't have the most effective season of his career in 2019, but he was far from a liability in coverage like fellow aging NFC North Star Xavier Rhodes. In fact, the reality of Slay's 13 PBUs being tied with his lowest total in six years goes to show how relatively consistent Slay has been for Detroit in recent years. Now entering the final year of his current deal, Slay is a strong candidate to receive an extension this offseason and his continued presence should make life easier for all Lions players in 2020.

Lions' Darius Slay: Tallies INT versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay recorded two tackles (one solo), one defended pass and one interception during Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Bears.

Slay notched his second interception of the season during the Thanksgiving Day loss. He spent much of the contest shadowing Allen Robinson. The two-time Pro Bowler will look to make another strong impact against the Vikings in Week 14.

Lions' Darius Slay: No injury designation for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (neck) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Dallas.

After popping up on the injury report Wednesday, Slay put in a limited practice Thursday before upgrading to a full practice Friday. He will suit up against the Cowboys and possibly be tasked with shadowing Amari Cooper.

November 14, 2019 04:24 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Listed as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (neck) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Slay wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he now appears to be dealing with a neck injury. The severity of Slay's new issue remains undisclosed, though it's a positive sign that he wasn't held out of practice entirely. The 28-year-old seems to have a good shot at suiting up Week 11 against the Cowboys, barring any setbacks.

Lions' Darius Slay: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Slay played 70 of a possible 71 defensive snaps in Week 9's loss to the Raiders, and he made three tackles (two solo). The veteran corner doesn't appear to be feeling any lingering effects in his hamstring at the start of the practice week. Slay has been the Lions' lockdown corner this year, as quarterbacks have produced a measly 72.3 passer rating when targeting Slay's receivers. He may shadow Allen Robinson in Sunday's matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Darius Slay: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Slay will get back into the lineup after being injured Week 7 against the Vikings and sitting out the following contest. His presence in the secondary is a major boost for the Lions, as he can help lockdown opponents' top playmakers. In this case, Slay may shadow Tyrell Williams or Darren Waller.

Lions' Darius Slay: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkk reports.

Slay's availability should make things more difficult for Derek Carr, and perhaps Tyrell Williams. The 28-year-old is Detroit's best cover corner.

Lions' Darius Slay: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Slay managed to practice without limitations Friday, which bodes well for his chances of taking the field Week 9. He sat out Week 8's win over the Giants. If Slay were forced to miss any more time, however, Rashaan Melvin would slot into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Lions' Darius Slay: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Slay missed Week 8's win over the Giants and wasn't able to practice last Friday. His limited participation Wednesday is therefore a step in the right direction, but Slay can't be considered a lock to suit up Sunday against the Raiders. In the event that Slay were forced to miss any more time, Rashaan Melvin would be in line to draw another start.

Lions' Darius Slay: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Slay wasn't seen participating at Friday's practice so it's no real surprise to see him ruled out for Week 8. Rashaan Melvin and Justin Coleman should handle the bulk of the work at cornerback versus New York.

October 25, 2019 01:04 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Not practicing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay wasn't seen participating at Friday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Slay aggravated his hamstring injury during last Sunday's loss to the Vikings and has been unable to practice this week. The 28-year-old will receive an official injury designation later Friday, but he seems unlikely to be available for Week 8.

October 23, 2019 06:20 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Slay aggravated a lingering hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade his participation in practice before Sunday's tilt against the Giants. If the star cornerback is forced to miss any time, expect Tavon Wilson to once again handle slot duties while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin draw the start outside.

October 21, 2019 09:40 AM
Lions' Darius Slay: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Slay aggravated his hamstring injury in the first half of the game, and the injury will force him to miss the remaining quarter and change. Now that he's officially out, Tavon Wilson seems likely to work in the slot, while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin handle outside duties at cornerback. Expect the team to comment on Slay's status following the game or in the coming days.

Lions' Darius Slay: Aggravates hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay exited Sunday's game against the Vikings with a hamstring injury.

Slay was questionable for Sunday's game due to a hamstring issue and he appears to have aggravated the injury during the first half. Tavon Wilson seems likely to work in the slot while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin handle outside duties at cornerback while Slay is sidelined.

Lions' Darius Slay: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Vikings.

Slay was limited in practice all week, but both he and safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) will suit up for the contest, leaving the defensive secondary at full strength for a showdown with Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota passing attack.

October 20, 2019 10:28 AM
Lions' Darius Slay: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday versus the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Slay received the questionable tag after being limited in practice all week, but it looks like he'll be good to go for Week 7. The Lions can ill afford to be without their star cornerback when going up against WRs Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs on Sunday.

October 18, 2019 03:56 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Vikings.

Slay was limited in practice all week due to a hamstring issue sustained Week 3. The star cornerback managed to suit up Monday versus the Packers, and he appears to have a good shot at playing through the injury once more Week 7.
