Lions trade Darius Slay to Eagles for third- and fifth-round picks
He's already reached agreement on a three-year, $50 million extension that includes $30 million guaranteed. Slay usually worked as one of the league's best corners during his seven seasons with the Lions, regularly traveling all over the field (including into the slot) in order to erase the opponent's No. 1 WR. It's a massive addition for the Eagles, who have struggled to contain any and all elite WRs in recent history.
This was "strictly procedural", but it's a reminder that Ertz and the Eagles will likely be talking about a contract extension soon. The reliable pass-catcher is due for a salary bump after five straight 800+ yard seasons in Philadelphia with his five-year contract ending in 2021.
