Darius Slay blasts Lions coach Matt Patricia on way out the door

Allen Park — In an unofficial exit interview with the team's broadcast partner WJR-AM, Darius Slay didn't hold back his animosity toward Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia hours after the team traded the cornerback to the Philadelphia Eagles for a pair of draft picks on Thursday.

Slay said the relationship between the two was fractured during Patricia's first year as Detroit's coach, in 2018, and despite things being better last season, the bond between the two never was mended.
