Report: Eagles talking Darius Slay trade
The Philadelphia Eagles will need some help at cornerback stopping Amari Cooper and Terry McLaurin next season and reportedly are working on resolving that matter.
The Eagles are reportedly talking about trading for Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay. ESPN’s Josina Anderson says as part of the trade, Philly is talking about a possible 3-year contract extension for Slay.
I'm told there are ongoing discussions right now regarding the framework of a 3-year extension as part of a trade that would send CB Darius Slay to the #Eagles, per source.

The 29-year-old is set to make $10 million next season but wants (and deserves) more than that. He’s understandably looking to go to a team that can pay him market value. Slay had 46 tackles and two interceptions last season. He has 19 career interceptions.
