Eagles Acquire Darius Slay from the Detroit Lions

After passing on free agents James Bradberry and Byron Jones earlier this week, the Eagles made a big splash Thursday morning by acquiring Pro Bowl Cornerback Darius Slay from the Detroit Lions. According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, the Eagles were aggressively trying to acquire Slay at the trade deadline last year but were unable to agree on draft pick compensation.

Slay is now the Eagles top cornerback and gives their secondary a much needed playmaker. With free agency still in the early stages, the Eagles could still look to add another CB. Xavier Rhodes, Logan Ryan, and Ronald Darby are some of the names Eagles fans should be paying attention to over the next couple weeks.

The Eagles and Slay have also agreed to a 3 year $50 million dollar contract extension. The deal will make Slay the highest paid CB in the NFL with a AAV of $16.6 million. The deal also includes $30 million dollars in guaranteed money.

  1. Another smart EARLY FA period for Howie. Got the best CB option so for a 3&5 he solidified one CB position. The DT makes for a formidable interior DL. Losing Jenkins is huge but the cord had to be cut- tough decision but they all wear big boy pants. Looks like he has no desire to overpay WRs . Peters hasn’t gotten a sniff that has been reported

  2. Nice Pick-up for CB D Slay
    I sense a Big Trade by the Eagles sending DT Fletcher Cox and his Huge Contract out the Door for High Draft Picks
    We will see..

    1. Trading cox and his salary will be difficult… replacing his production next to impossible. As eagles fans realize they are 100% committed to interior play. It is always a “need” for the eagles. They commit draft picks and salary. They will glad have Paul man play linebacker if they can have great DL play… it is how they think, it’s their model.
      Also, the need for a WR was completely overblown by fans and media it appears. They will wait till prices come down

      1. Hopefully this Malik Jackson will be 100% for 2020 Season for he’s a Big Man with a burst that can slide Outside and still get some Pressure on the QB from the DE Position on Occasion.. But Cox,MJ, Justin Hargrove and even 4th DT Hassan Ridgeway is a very strong group..

        Draft 2 WR’s and 1 LB within the first 4 Draft Selections

        1. They will draft the BPA… they need every position so all are on the table…would have to look at position groups … value wr DB and OL…. losing V and JP thins OT,

  3. **Paulman Trade Alert**

    Eagles Trade DT Fletcher Cox to the Miami Dolphins for the overall 26th Pick in the 1st Round
    and the 56th Overall Pick in the 2nd Round and also a 2nd Round Pick in 2021 Draft

    Details to follow

    1. Eagles will now have the #21,#26,#53, #56 Draft Selections in the first 2 Rounds ..
      Great Move Howie , Now Hit on these Draft Picks

      Where have you Gone Gloomy !!!

      1. P. Man…. I can only guess that you had to use your trade value chart for toilet paper…. Dolphins ain’t doing that .
        And while the Texans are stupid as hell they ain’t doing that either, to trade Jeffrey they would have trade player PLUS a 5 for a 7 in return…. something like that.

  4. *** Trade Alert ***
    Eagles Trade TE Zach Ertz to the Indy Colts for their 2020 2nd Round (#44 Overall) Selection as well as a 2021
    2nd Round Pick

    Eagles Now have 5 Selections (#21,#26,#44, #53 & #56) all within the first 2 Rounds of the 2020 Draft

    Wow !!1

  5. Eagles Select the Following Players in my above Scenario

    #21 – WR Denzel Mims – Baylor (6-3 – 210lbs)
    #26 – CB J Gladney – TCU (5-10 – 192lbs)
    #44 – WR B Aiyuk – Arizona State (6-0 – 205lbs)
    #53 – TE Cole Kmet – Notre Dame (6-6 – 260lbs)
    #56 – Safety – Kyle Dugger – Lenoir-Rhyne (6-1 – 215lbs)

    Use the rest of the Draft to Address the LB, OL,DE & DB & RB Positions

    1. Eagles go 4-12 in 20, 5-11 in 21…. everyone fired… delusional cliff gets an interview for popcorn vender… during interviews he mentions his degrees and “eye for talent”… he catapults past popcorn vender and goes
      Right to the cheesesteak stand

      1. Unfortunately during the first preseason game Lurie comes to the Stand and orders a large with…cheesesteak cliff talks him into trading back for a small, order of fries and a coke…. Lurie pulls off the trade… little did he know the fries are cooked in peanut oil causing a terrible allergic reaction… the owner is rushed to the hospital… Lurie is heard screaming from ambulance “fire that fake GM!”. Cliff gets fired AGAIN, he files another frivolous lawsuit the judge throws it out and makes cliff pay court costs.

  6. Good call Pman, Cox and Ertz need to go. Production about to drop off and they both make a ton. Now’s the time to get decent comp before it’s too late. Would love to see the Birds draft a junk yard dog linebacker with cover skills. Everyone forgets how great it is to have a playmaking LB. We have not had one for years. Don’t overthink it, Howie!

    Condolences to GMCliff, his pop passed away.
    In his honor I hope the eagles trade up to trade back, dump graham and draft Lawrence Taylor at OLB

    1. Sorry to Hear about GM Cliff’s Father… Prayers/Condolences Gout out
