Darius Slay breaks silence on holdout, undecided on training camp

Darius Slay breaks silence on holdout, undecided on training camp

The Lions’ star cornerback is unsure whether he’ll report to training camp. Unlike Damon Harrison Sr., who has been pretty vocal on social media about his desire to get paid more this offseason (however indirectly it has been), Darius Slay has taken the quieter route. Though both were absent during OTAs and minicamp over the past month, neither have directly addressed this with the media, choosing instead to let their actions speak for themselves. This week, Slay joined The Pride Podcast, and while he didn’t go into much, if any, detail about his situation, he did talk about whether...

Darius Slay comments on if he will be at Detroit Lions’ training camp

It is no mystery that Detroit Lions’ Pro Bowl CB Darius Slay wants a contract extension. But the question is, will Slay, who still has two years left of on his current contract, be at training camp if a deal is not worked out with the Lions beforehand?

Recent NFL contracts provide blueprint for Slay, Harrison extensions

Recent NFL contracts provide blueprint for Slay, Harrison extensions

The Lions could follow the Chiefs’ example. As players around the NFL are getting ready to break for a month, we’re starting to see a few players receive new contracts and extensions. The Detroit Lions have two players that are seeking new deals, but general manager Bob Quinn doesn’t typically do extensions around this time, often choosing to wait for the start of training camp to get down to the financial side of football. However, these early deals could give us some insight into the kind of agreements the Lions may agree upon with Damon Harrison Sr. and Darius Slay. Let’s take a...

Detroit Lions film breakdown: Why Darius Slay deserves a new contract

The corner is skipping out on mini-camp because he wants a new deal, and the Lions should give him one Detroit Lions star cornerback Darius Slay has elected to sit out of the teams mandatory minicamp this offseason, officially taking the first step of a potential hold out. The 2017 first-team All Pro has two years left on the four year, $48 million dollar extension he signed in 2016. His cap hit of nearly $16 million this season makes him one of the most expensive cornerbacks in the NFL in 2019, but with limited guaranteed money left on his deal, the 28-year-old corner is looking for long...

Debating Slay-Snacks holdouts, Jermaine Kearse signing analysis

This week’s PODcast has plenty of news to talk about. With mandatory minicamp in the books, there’s only one measly week of OTAs between now and the football abyss. We’re nearing the quietest moment in the offseason in which there are no practices. There is no upcoming free agency or draft events. The players will be off for over a month, and while we may get a tidbit of news here and there, mostly there will be nothing. So on this week’s PODcast we make sure to strip all the meat from the minicamp bone. We talk Darius Slay. We talke Damon Harrison. We talk the Jermaine Kearse...

Poll: Which contract negotiations should take priority: Slay or Snacks?

Poll: Which contract negotiations should take priority: Slay or Snacks?

Time to make a tough decision. With both Damon “Snacks” Harrison and Darius Slay missing mandator minicamp last week, it’s become clear that both are trying to leverage themselves a new or restructured contract. Both have played well for the Lions and both deserve it, if you ask me. Neither player has any guaranteed money remaining on the final two years of their contract, so it’s very possible that at the very least, these two players are attempting to make some of that money a sure thing. Both players are pivotal pieces for Matt Patricia’s defense as he enters his second year...

Ask POD: Holding out for training camp

While others are holding out, we’re back and answering your pressing questions. It’s been a week of holdouts. Darius Slay has officially stayed at home while the Detroit Lions started (and ended) mandatory minicamp. When Damon Harrison Sr. wasn’t bodying people on Twitter, he, too, was absent from this week of practices. Hell, some of our friends at Vox Media and SB Nation even spent a day away from their computers in an effort to find a new, fair deal. But we here at the PODcast are taking no such time off.

Projecting 2 solutions to the stalemate between Darius Slay and the Lions

Diving into the details of how the Lions and their star cornerback can come to an agreement. In the NFL, deadlines spur action. From the start of the official league year and the timing of a player options, to roster cut downs and IR return designations, flurries of action can always be found around deadlines. As the first hard deadline of the NFL offseason schedule came and went this week with teams conducting their mandatory minicamps, action — or perhaps more appropriately, inaction — on the part of a handful of NFL players was taken in the form of official holdouts. Of course, this...
