The first reports of a deal between the Lions and the Eagles came Wednesday night from ESPN`s Josina Anderson. However, both sides agreed to send third- and five-time pick-ups to the Lions. The deal after the deal: The Eagles and new CB Darius Slay have agreed a three-year extension of $50 million, guaranteeing $30 million, @RosenhausSports espn. Since the 2019 season, the Lions have tried to trade Slay for some draft money. Although he is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, Detroit hasn`t had much of a chance to move the corner all pro. It could threaten to continue, and could even sit until the start of the regular season. The Philadelphia Eagles gave two potentially valuable draft picks in their contract for Detroit Lions loback Darius Slay, who was before signing him to a three-year, $50 million renewal contract. A splash for Philly: the #Eagles are acting to #Lions-star CB Darius Slay, say the sources, concluding the discussions that began at the beginning of the negotiation period. As part of the agreement, Slay was awarded a new contract that ranked him among the highest paid in his position. MLive`s Kyle Meinke wrote an article about how legendary CB Deion Sanders thinks the Lions should pay their own pro bowl corner.
Sanders believes the Lions are foolish to replace him and should instead reward Slay for his strong game of several years. Slay thanked via Twitter and thanked the Hall-of-Famer, who is now a broadcast analyst for the NFL network. When he rose through the ranks, Slay signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension in July 2016 — making him one of the NFL`s highest-paid cornerbacks. In 2019, Slay has decided not to participate in voluntary spring training and mandatory minicamps in an attempt to use a contract extension with the Lions. The strategy didn`t work, as Slay reported for training camp without overtime. Yes, he is very open in the locker room and has announced that he is not satisfied with some inventory decisions in 2019. The ceiling for Slay in 2020, as you can see, is very low at $4,300,000. In 2021, it jumped to $15,750,000 and $19,750,000 in 2022. If you look at the two pink columns on the right, you can see that the Eagles are stuck for two years in Slay. Dismissing him during the 2022 offseason would only lead to a $6,500,000 fine.
Slay has hinted that he wants to be paid at the top corners in the NFL, but understands the business side of the game. Lions receive a huge haul from Panthers in The Latest Draft and there`s a third option to consider, too: Bringing Back Slay without any changes to his current deal. By letting Slay play his contract, he will be forced to continue producing at a high level to earn his next deal elsewhere. If Slay were to stay three years of the deal, the Eagles could still cut the cornerback for $17.5 million in 2023. At that point, his dead cap would be only $3.25 million. You always have a vacation on the corner of Slay, with Jalen Mills safe and Ronald Darby, a free agent waiting. Darius Slay was always paid. But not as much as expected. Trade Talks Continue for Darius Slay with multiple Teams Darius Slay signed a three-year, $50.5 million contract with the Eagles after the team acquired him from the Detroit Lions earlier this month. He received $US 30.05 million in guaranteed cash, $26.05 million guaranteed at the signing, according to Over The Cap.
But it`s now up to the leaders to put aside their desire to control the message and allow Slay to help the team win in 2020.
