With trade rumors swirling, where could Darius Slay potentially end up?

The Internet is abuzz with discussions about the star cornerback’s future after learning the Detroit Lions are reportedly speaking with several teams about trades involving Slay. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, other teams believe a trade will happen, but Detroit highly values the three-time Pro Bowler and won’t give him up for just anything.

Pro Football Focus’s George Chahrouri and Sam Monson agree on his talent — but not on where he could possibly end up.

Darius Slay is an extremely good cover corner that is getting towards the end but frankly — go after him, get him, lock down that coverage,” Monson said.

He goes on to argue Houston Texans should be going after Slay, while Chahrouri says the Philadelphia Eagles are more of a fit. Watch the whole clip to hear their reasoning.

They’re far from the only ones thinking about it. Understandably, writers are flocking to their keyboards to ponder — should their team go after Slay? Is it worth it? What do they have to offer?


While we’re on the subject, head on over to Ryan Mathews’ open thread of the day to give your input on what you’d be okay with trading Slay for—first-round pick, second, what do you think?
