SOURCEDarius Slay’s relationship with Matt Patricia was fractured and unsalvageable, and the former Detroit Lions cornerback said that ultimately is what set the stage for his trade Thursday to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Slay, a three-time Pro Bowler, told the Free Press on Thursday that his lack of respect for Patricia stems from an incident that happened in training camp during Patricia’s first season as Lions coach in 2018.

“He told me in front of the whole team, in the team meeting room, showed clips of me in practice getting a ball caught on me or so in practice,” Slay said. “I posted a picture (of a wide receiver on social media), and he told me, stop sucking this man’s private. So I’m like, ‘Whoa.’ I’m like, ‘Hold up.’ Where I’m from, that don’t fly. Cause I wouldn’t say that to him. I wouldn’t say to him to stop you know what to Bill Belichick. I wouldn’t do that. That’s just not me as a man. That’s disrespectful to me and so from there on it was done with.”

“Your first impression always your best impression,” Slay said. “Like I said, I would never disrespect him in that way. And for him to be able to tell me I’m out here sucking another man’s crank because of a picture I post, I ain’t like that. And it took me a whole nother level.”


Safe to say there were definitely some bad blood between Matt Patricia and Darius Slay. Matt Patricia strikes me as some old school drill sergeant that wants it to be his way or the highway. Bold strategy to single out your All-Pro CB, in your firs year as a head coach, by showing film of him giving up a catch and then telling him to stop sucking some WR’s dick because he posted a picture on social media. Pretty sureThere’s no doubt Patricia didn’t learn this type of stuff from Bill Belichick. The problem is the game is totally different than 2004 when Patricia started on Bill’s staff. Belichick had 5 Super Bowl wins by 2004. He could tell Tom Brady or Tedy Bruschi to go play in oncoming traffic. You can’t come in to a new organization after your defense just gave up 500+ yards of total offense and lost the Super Bowl and start motherfucking people and telling them this is how we’re going to do that. Especially, in this day and age with players.

How did Patricia follow that meeting up? Apologize? Maybe go to the media and praise Slay? Nope just saw Darius Slay working out with Richard Sherman and Aqib Talib, trying to better himself, and telling him “he had no business working out w/ Aqib Talib & Richard Sherman b/c those guys were elite & Slay was “just good.”


Sheesh…what a motivation tactic by Patricia. Probably called Matt Stafford a pussy in the locker room because he couldn’t play through a broken back last season.

Also, when a top-5 wide receiver and unanimous all-around great guy takes time to congratulate you for getting out of Detroit. You know there has to be problems with more than just the coach. Calvin basically congratulated him for getting out of an abusive relationship.



I’m so excited for the upgrade Darius Slay is going to bring to this defense. He’s cocky as hell, but what good CB isn’t? Hell, Jalen Mills has a ball sail 20 feet over the receivers head and he’s Mutumbo finger wagging like he made the biggest stop in the Super Bowl. Give me more of Big Play Slay. That guy doesn’t give a fuck!
