Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-16

The Eagles and Slay reached an agreement on a two-year extension Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

In the lead up to the new league year, Slay's representatives were granted permission to pursue a trade for the 10-year pro. By Wednesday, there was an expectation that the Eagles would release Slay, but the two sides decided to talk, and now the cornerback is slated to stay with the franchise through the 2025 campaign. Over the course of three seasons in Philadelphia, Slay has racked up between 50 and 60 tackles each year while compiling seven interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 48 games.

Staying put after all

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-15

Slay and the Eagles agreed Wednesday to a restructured contract, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eagles were expected to release Slay on Wednesday, but the team and player were instead able to come to an agreement on a reworked deal, which will help clear cap space for Philadelphia in 2023. Slay confirmed that he's staying in Philadelphia via a post on his personal Twitter account.

Set for release

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-15

The Eagles are slated to release Slay at the official start of the new league year Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Slay posted a goodbye note to Philadelphia on his personal Twitter account Wednesday, confirming reports of his impending release. Per Schefter, the Eagles attempted to work out a restructured contract with the star cornerback but were unable to come to an agreement by Wednesday's effective deadline. The 32-year-old will immediately become the top cornerback available on the open market, so he should have no shortage of suitors.

Could be heading elsewhere?

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-10

Darius Slay's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has been granted permission by the Eagles to seek a trade for the five-time Pro-Bowler, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Slay is currently heading into the final year of his three-year, $50 million contract, and the hope for Philadelphia is that he'll remain with the team for at least one more campaign. The 32-year-old cornerback was certainly one of the top players at his position during last season's Super Bowl run with the Eagles, as he played in all 20 games and registered 67 tackles, 15 passes defensed and three interceptions in that span. Slay is in line to make a base salary of $17 million in 2023 with a cap hit of over $26 million, per Tim McManus of ESPN. Both parties have mutual interests when it comes to the veteran remaining with the team, but it's ultimately going to come down to whether or not they can agree on an extension.

Finishes year with three picks

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-15

Slay ended the regular season with 55 tackles, 14 passes defended and three interceptions.

The veteran's play didn't tail off in his age-31 season. He's now finished with at least 50 tackles in three consecutive seasons and in six of his 10 years as a professional, and his three picks tied for the second-best mark on the team as well as the second-best mark of his career.
