The Darius Slay trade offers just keep coming in according to another report. After ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on Sunday morning that the Lions have received some calls about Darius Slay, Schefter’s ESPN colleague Chris Mortensen provided a little more specifics about the situations.

Per Mortensen, the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to acquire the Detroit Lions cornerback.

“They’re taking a shot at Darius Slay of the Lions, but the price tag on Slay is very, very high,” Mortensen said on “SportsCenter” Monday.

The Eagles would be a logical landing spot for Slay, as the team currently has one of the worst passing defenses in the league, and they also reportedly offered a first and second-round pick for Jalen Ramsey, but were outbid by the Los Angeles Rams.

But Mortensen sounded pessimistic about the Eagles’ chances of landing Slay due to the high cost Detroit is demanding. He concludes his segment by offering a more realistic option for Philly.

“So maybe a realistic one would be somebody like Chris Harris from the Broncos, but the Eagles are expected to be aggressive here but reasonable.”
