Darius Slay wants Carson Wentz to sign ball from QB’s 1st career INT

Slay is awesome. That is all. We all know that Detroit Lions cornerback has confidence in spades, but he may have just outdone himself this week. It’s one thing to play with the kind of swagger he does and challenge quarterbacks to come at him. It’s another to ask a quarterback to sign the ball of their first interceptions ever thrown. But that’s exactly what Slay did in this phenomenal NFL Films profile of him that dropped this week: .@_bigplayslay23 had to grow up fast when he became a teenage dad. But on the football field, he is a kid all over again.#NFLFilmsPresents: Darius...

Detroit Lions film breakdown: Darius Slay vs. Davante Adams, Round 1

Detroit Lions film breakdown: Darius Slay vs. Davante Adams, Round 1

The Lions star corner was matched up against a top level receiver for the first time this season. The Detroit Lions Week 5 matchup against the Green Bay Packers included every unexpected variable you could think of. Aaron Rodgers wasn’t himself in the first half. Long-time kicker Mason Crosby forgot how to kick a field goal. The Lions front seven was actually good. One outlier that seemed to slip by everyone was the poor play of cornerback Darius Slay. The 2017 first-team All Pro stood out last season with dazzling performances against the likes of Julio Jones and Antonio Brown. His...

WATCH: Detroit Lions tweet out Darius Slay ‘Under the Helmet’ video

Every since Darius Slay was selected by the Detroit Lions in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, he has constantly improved on the football field. In fact, because of his hard work and determination, Slay was selected to play in the Pro Bowl last season and he was named an NFL All-Pro. The Lions have been releasing a series of videos titled, “Under the Helmet,” where fans are able to get a closer look at each player off of the field. On Wednesday, the Lions released their latest video which features Darius Slay. Check it out. I want a lot of people to be successful in life...

3 Detroit Lions who could be traded before Halloween

After defeating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Detroit Lions are now within a game of the .500 mark and within striking distance in the NFC North. But there is one big problem. The Lions do not have a roster that is ready to contend for a Super Bowl and that is all that really matters. Sure, they have quality players in Matthew Stafford, Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay, Kerryon Johnson, and Darius Slay, but that is not enough. Moving forward, Lions general manager Bob Quinn has some very important decisions to make. One of those decisions may involve making a move prior...

Even Aaron Rodgers agrees, Darius Slay is 'a gangster' at cornerback

Even Aaron Rodgers agrees, Darius Slay is 'a gangster' at cornerback

Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay broke up 3 passes in the first 20 minutes of the Lions loss to the Dallas Cowboys last week.

What did Darius Slay say? “****, I’m a gangster!”

Lions cornerback Darius Slay’s numbers are good for 11th best in the NFL so far this season, having allowed just seven catches on 104 coverage snaps while holding opposing quarterbacks to a passer rating of 56.8. He had himself a game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys with three pass breakups in the first half (an NFL high). Of course, that will raise one’s confidence levels, and he didn’t mind engaging in a little bit of trash talk with his opponents. Embed from “I couldn’t believe it either, but you see the result,” Slay said. “I couldn’t believe it. I told Dak...

Opposing player of the week: Darius Slay is an elite ball-hawking corner

Opposing player of the week: Darius Slay is an elite ball-hawking corner

The Lions feature one of the NFL’s elite corners. The Dallas Cowboys are gearing up for a crucial game that will have major implications on the rest of the season and, maybe, beyond. Dallas, 1-2, will look to rebound offensively after mediocre showings in two of the Cowboys’ first three games; but a Detroit Lions team, also 1-2, is led by a strong secondary and they are hungry to carry over the momentum that they gained with a win over the New England Patriots. Dallas will likely want to rely on their workhorse running back, Ezekiel Elliott, in the critical week four battle as the Lions...

Detroit Lions film breakdown: How the Detroit Lions secondary shut down Tom Brady

Detroit Lions film breakdown: How the Detroit Lions secondary shut down Tom Brady

Detroit’s pass coverage was key to their win on Sunday night. One of the major stories out of the Detroit Lions Week 3 victory over the New England Patriots was Tom Brady’s quiet day. The future hall of fame quarterback only threw for 133 yards and a touchdown on 26 pass attempts. He also threw a rare interception to corner back Darius Slay late in the game. The Lions did a great job taking advantage of the poor receivers on the Patriots offense. Detroit was willing to give up the shorter areas of the field to New England’s receivers if it meant giving themselves large cushions to...

Inactives: Darius Slay WILL PLAY vs. Patriots; Ansah out again

The Lions cornerback has cleared concussion protocol and will play Sunday night. Despite a somewhat lengthy injury report, the Detroit Lions will be in fairly good shape on Sunday night for their contest against the New England Patriots. T.J. Lang is active and will return after missing Week 2’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. Perhaps most notably, Darius Slay, who suffered a concussion last week, is also ACTIVE this week, clearing concussion protocol just before Sunday night. However, Ezekiel Ansah remains OUT despite a full week of limited practice. Ansah suffered a shoulder...
