Eagles Allowing Slay to Seek Trade


According to Diana Russini of ESPN, the Philadelphia Eagles are allowing Pro-Bowl Cornerback Darius Slay to seek a trade.

The report noted that Slay did not ask to be traded, the sources added, and the Eagles are still hoping to find a solution where Slay remains an Eagle.

Slay, 32, is entering the final year of his three-year, $50 million deal. He is slated to make a base salary of $17 million in 2023 with a cap hit of over $26 million, per Spotrac.

“Of course I want an extension with the Eagles. I love the Eagles. They took another chance on me trading for me, and I panned out very well of course. But yeah, I love that money, so of course I’m going to be talking about it this offseason,” Slay said recently on the “Montgomery & Co.” podcast. “That’s everyone, that’s what we all do when we’ve got one year left on our deal. We try to get the extension because it makes the cap low and then you get to start building around the team because once you’re cap’s too high, you can’t add more players.
