DETROIT (AP) — Darius Slay got his wish with a trade out of Detroit and a big new contract.
The Lions agreed to trade Slay to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The move ends the standout cornerback's seven-year stint in Detroit. Agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the trade and said that Slay has agreed to a three-year, $50 million extension with Philadelphia.
The Lions drafted Slay 36th overall in 2013 and he earned All-Pro honors in 2017.
Slay wanted a new contract before last season, then he played well enough to earn a third Pro Bowl nod. ESPN, citing an unidentified source, reported that the Lions will receive 2020 draft picks in the third and fifth rounds for Slay.
