Trading Darius Slay away would be another Quandre Diggs mistake

The Detroit Lions should be in the business of keeping great players on their roster. Period. Honestly, there is no reason to read any further.

Well, if you insist. Undoubtedly, cornerback Darius Slay is a great player. Slay has arguably been the Lions best defender since he was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State.

Coming off his third Pro Bowl appearance in a row, and considering the fact he held out of OTAs and minicamp last offseason reportedly in an effort to get a new contract, Slay has now publicly stated he would love to have an extension in Detroit.
