Broncos: Why a trade for CB Darius Slay would make sense

In a recent article, 9News Broncos insider Mike Klis opined that the Broncos should consider a trade of Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay this offseason.

Cornerback is near the top of the list of offseason needs for the Broncos with veteran Chris Harris Jr. set to test the free agent waters and possibly (likely) leave for a new city and team.

With a deep crop of free agent cornerbacks, would a trade -- Slay for a third-round pick -- make sense for the Broncos? The short answer: Absolutely.

The long answer:

John Elway has long preferred to fill needs via free agency and he's been aggressive making trades when it makes sense to do so.
