    Getty Darius Slay during a game against the Browns. Darius Slay will do whatever it takes to make the Eagles’ defense better. And tackling is at the very top of that list. The new number one cornerback in Philadelphia didn’t take kindly when one local reporter questioned his tackling prowess on Monday. Slay seemed confused and angry about it, just look at his numbers: 347 career tackles in seven stellar seasons. He even has a highlight-reel, touchdown-saving tackle on his resume from 2018 when he tracked D.J. Moore 70 yards down the field. Slay’s reputation speaks for itself. Still, the three-time Pro Bowl player felt the need to defend himself after being called out for missing too many...
    Getty Darius Slay reacts after an interception. Darius Slay is long gone from the Detroit Lions, but the bitterness from the cornerback apparently lingers on even as he gets set to suit up for the Philadelphia Eagles. Slay, who was recently speaking before camp opens, was asked about his excitement for his new team and the 2020 season. He provided an honest answer, but it was easy to see it could be construed as another shot at his old team in Detroit and their head coach. Presented without comment … https://t.co/BzsRTa8qAV — Chris Burke (@ChrisBurkeNFL) August 10, 2020 Slay, of course, didn’t leave on great terms with the Lions, and his trainer recently took a shot at...
    Getty Stephon Gilmore The biggest splash the Eagles made in the offseason was trading for Darius Slay, arguably the best cornerback in football. He’s the first lock-down corner the franchise has had since Asante Samuel left town. But Slay has been disrespected by the national media as well as by analytics-driven websites like Pro Football Focus for a “down year” in 2019. He finished with just two interceptions and graded out at 56.4 in coverage, the second-lowest rating of his career. Numbers don’t tell the whole story, though. Slay was forced to match up against the top receiver on every team he faced last year — guys like Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, Stefon Diggs — and held his...

Considering all the drama between Jamal Adams and the Jets, many wondered what exactly New York would manage to get for the young safety. The answer turned out to be a terrific payday from Seattle in the form of Bradley McDougald, a pair of first-round picks and a third-rounder. Adams’ deal has single-handedly raised the stakes...
    Getty Golden Tate #15 and Darius Slayton #86 of the New York Giants New Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay knows all too well how lethal New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is with the football in his hands. The 3x-Pro Bowl defender enjoyed a front-row ticket to Tate’s yards after catch abilities (YAC) on a daily basis over a five-year run as fellow teammates with the Detroit Lions from 2014 through 2018. Hence why Slay appeared the least surprised to peep Tate’s name atop Pro Football Focus’ latest tweet ranking the “Most YAC by a WR” over the past five seasons. Instead, Slay focused his efforts on doling out some much-warranted respect in the direction of the...

(Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) The Eagles have a lot riding on Darius Slay.While the Philadelphia Eagles might have only ranked 19th in fewest passing yards allowed in the NFL last year, but that stat belies the fact that the lack of depth at cornerback hindered whatever championship hopes this squad had. Howie Roseman swung for the fences to plug up that hole after trading for Detroit Lions corner Darius Slay. The former Mississippi State star might be the single most important player on the Eagles in 2020 given...

    Getty Amari Cooper New Eagles cornerback Darius Slay has been called the Amari Cooper stopper. And for good reason. Slay has limited Cooper to four catches for 42 yards and zero touchdowns on 12 career targets. Impressive numbers to say the least. Significantly more impressive was the way the Cowboys star receiver recently described the three-time Pro Bowler during a recent film breakdown session with NFL Films. “Slay is really good,” Cooper told Brian Baldinger and Kurt Warner. He admitted Slay was one of the toughest cover corners in the NFL in an 18-minute segment where he also referenced former Jets legend Darrelle Revis. Cooper pointed out that Slay excels at taking away certain routes, specifically the stop...
