Detroit Lions players react to LeBron James signing with the Lakers

How does Darius Slay—a LeBron hater and Lakers fan—feel about LeBron’s decision to play in LA? One thing people tend to overlook about NFL athletes is that they are fans, too. If you follow closely, you’ll see Detroit Lions players live-tweeting NBA games, attending NHL games or spitting out fire takes on social media about their favorite teams. So when news as monstrous as LeBron James signing with the Los Angeles Lakers hits the media cycle, players around the league are going to react, and Detroit Lions players were no different Sunday night. The reactions varied from ecstacy to...

Open thread: Who should be the highest rated Lions player on Madden 19?

A few weeks ago certain Madden 19 ratings were released, and they weren’t too kind to the Detroit Lions. Since then, Madden programmers have made it clear that these ratings are not final and that you can expect different ratings when the game actually drops in early August. In those leaked rating, Darius Slay was the highest ranked Lions, with a mere 89 rating. Slay, himself, wasn’t too happy with the rating: I gots to start in the 90’s this year.... most INTs an PBU’s.... Don’t play me @EAMaddenNFL https://t.co/cxf7MjIFkN— Darius Slay (@_bigplayslay23) June 17, 2018 The...

VIDEO: Chad Johnson calls Darius Slay’s footwook ‘art’

Darius Slay is even earning praise during the offseason. On Wednesday, we noted that Darius Slay wasn’t taking his month vacation prior to training camp off. Instead, he was training with some of the best cornerbacks in the league, including Richard Sherman, Aqib Talib and Xavier Rhodes. It was a show of intense commitment from Slay, who is coming off his best season to date. And apparently he’s already turning heads during training. Rischad Whitfield, who runs the offseason training program for the all-start corners, posted this video of Slay, and needless to say, he was impressed...

Darius Slay training with Richard Sherman, Aqib Talib, others

Darius Slay is continuing to make himself a better player. Many NFL players take the time in between OTAs and training camp to relax and spend a little time with their families. It’s important to keep in football shape during this time, but considering it will be the players’ last time in the next six months to take some serious personal time off, many choose to do so. Recently married Darius Slay isn’t one to rest on his laurels much. After a short honeymoon, Slay is already back to work, despite the fact that he won’t have to report to training camp for another month. And he’s...

PODcast ranks the top 10 2018 CBs: Is Darius Slay in the top 5?

Where does Darius Slay land our each of our lists? As we recently learned from NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2018 list, Darius Slay has gained a lot of respect as of late. Not only did he pick up his first Pro Bowl and All Pro nods last season, but his peers in the NFL ranked him as the fourth-best cornerback in the entire league. Considering he was off of most people’s top 10 list last year, he certainly seems to be a rising star in the league. So where does Slay rank in our top 10 cornerback list? That was the big question on this week’s PODcast. This week, we continue our...

Matthew Stafford voted 9th-best quarterback in NFL by players, Slay 4th-best CB

No. 9 is No. 9. On Monday night, NFL Network will release the final 10 players on their Top 100 Players of 2018 list. The countdown is based on voting from NFL players and has already featured two Detroit Lions players: Matthew Stafford and Darius Slay. Slay came in at 49, the first time he has ever appeared on the list. Stafford ranked 31st, the exact same ranking he had last year. We don’t know exactly what the rankings for the top 10 players are yet, but NFL.com’s Adam Schein did spoil the list by mentioning which 10 players are left, just not the order of the said list. Sorry...

Detroit Lions defender projected to earn first Pro Bowl bid in 2018

The Detroit Lions could have a first-time Pro Bowler lining up for them along the front seven of their defense in 2018 according to one NFL insider. Last season, one Detroit Lions player organically earned a Pro Bowl nomination. And for fifth-year veteran cornerback Darius Slay, it was a long time coming.

Open thread: Which Detroit Lion will be the next first-time Pro Bowler?

Darius Slay did it last year. Who will be next? Last year, Darius Slay had a breakout year, leading the NFL in both interceptions and pass breakups. As a result, Slay made the first Pro Bowl of his career, traveling to Hawaii with teammate T.J. Lang, who was named to the all-star team for the second year in a row. But the Lions still have plenty of talented players who have never achieved Pro Bowl Honors. That got us thinking, which Lions player could follow in Slay’s footsteps and make the first Pro Bowl of their career in 2018? NFL.com asked that question of all NFC teams, and their...

Lions players aren’t taking the disrespect lightly. Remember from earlier in the week when Bucky Brooks of NFL.com failed to include the Detroit Lions in his top five wide receiver groups in the NFL?

Darius Slay leads Detroit Lions players in ‘Madden 19’ ratings - MLive

No Lions player was able to crack the 90's level of this year's game. Darius Slay is very in tune with how he's rated around the league. Whether it's campaigning for the Pro Bowl or the NFL Top 100, the Lions cornerback has plenty to say about the honors he thinks he deserves and where he winds up in the process. So of course he had something on his mind when this year's "Madden" ratings came out. The popular NFL video game released its initial ratings for all players in the league this week. They are subject to change, but no matter what the final tally is,...
