I'm told there are ongoing discussions right now regarding the framework of a 3-year extension as part of a trade that would send CB Darius Slay to the #Eagles, per source.

Late last night Josina Anderson (gross) reported that the Lions and Eagles were working on a trade and 3 year contract extension for Darius Slay. Slay is the shut down corner the Eagles desperately need. Him and Jalen Ramsey are the only two CBs to make 3 straight Pro Bowls. He also, LOCKS up Dallas’ $100 million man Amari Cooper. How hilarious would it be if Jerry Jones paid all that money for Howie to just put his dick on the table sign Slay and render Cooper useless in 48 hours. The Eagles were so slow on Free Agency that this better have been the deal they’ve been working on the whole time. Make Slay the highest paid corner in the NFL and let’s get that defense locked up for the future.
Notes on Darius Slay:
* Leads NFL with 82 PBU since 2015
* One of just 2 CB named to 3 straight Pro Bowls (Jalen Ramsey)
* 29 years old
* Under contract through 2020 (due $10M)
* Excellent man-to-man coverage skills
A blue-chip player.
